Surgically Clean Air – JADE Purifying System
Maximizing Patient Safety & Comfort at Our Tigard, OR Office
At Progressive Periodontics, Implants and Laser Therapy, we strive to provide the best all-around experience by ensuring our office is fully equipped with the most advanced technology for a clean, fresh, and re-energizing atmosphere. Especially during unprecedented times such as the COVID-19 pandemic, air pollution and other microscopic particles are extremely harmful to breathe in. In fact, according to the EPA, 68% of human diseases are related to indoor air pollution.
As such, we’ve chosen to install and utilize Surgically Clean Air’s JADE air purifying system to produce high-quality clean air through a sophisticated filtration system. This world-class, medical-grade air purifier is a vital resource in dental practices, as it kills airborne viruses and helps reduce the spread of germs.

The Harmful Particles We Can’t See
Indoor air quality can contain microscopic and unhealthy particles, especially in places with high accessibility and traffic. Numerous daily interactions can introduce viral and bacterial infections.
The toxicity of indoor air is generally a result of people, dust, dirt, fumes, emissions, and others alike, which make the health of a dental environment challenging.
In fact, statistics from the US Department of Labor rank dental occupations as the #1 job for harboring poor air quality. But not at Progressive Periodontics, Implants and Laser Therapy.
How Important Is Air Quality for a Dental Office?
Since the dental profession is more vulnerable to harmful indoor air exposure than any other medical profession, the atmosphere of a practice NEEDS clean air to safely operate.Without proper air filtration, individuals are at risk of spreading harmful germs. Patients are constantly opening their mouths and spreading particles to other people without even noticing.
The use of various drills and scaling equipment can also create micro-droplet viruses or bacteria that are light enough to stay airborne for hours. Plus, cleaning and disinfecting after treatments produces harmful bio-aerosol particles, which can reach into the deepest parts of our lungs. This can absorb into the blood stream and creates severe risks to our health.
What Sets Surgically Clean Air Apart?
Surgically Clean Air is a trusted brand by medical professionals across the globe. We use the JADE purifying system because it’s clinically proven to clean and sterilize the indoor air of hospitals, medical labs, and dental clinics with immediate and effective results. Compared to other purifiers, its design allows air to cascade out the top and flow throughout the room more efficiently.
The benefits of our JADE air purifying system include:
- Removes dust and pollen that affects allergies
- Kills germs and viruses
- Eliminates odors and VOCs (perfumes, air fresheners, etc.)
- Re-energizes stale indoor air
- Makes breathing easier and leaves you feeling more energized
Our Promise to Our Patients
We understand the importance of managing indoor air quality as well as the risks that come with it.
As dental professionals, we are mandated to follow general protocols, such as sterilizing our instruments and disinfecting surface areas, however, we are not instructed to provide a reliable system for purifying air. We made that decision on our own.
As your dental provider, we promise to protect the health and well-being of our patients and staff by taking any and every precaution necessary to do so. We are constantly paying attention to the quality and purity of our air and staying committed to creating a healthy and safe environment, so your health is never at risk.
