It can be hard to know where to look for the latest information - the CDC has been cautious to confirm the spread of COVID-19 as airborne. We've started a post that we'll continue to update with the latest information as it relates to dental aerosol control.
With updates coming in almost daily about dental aerosols and their risks, we’ve decided to consolidate all the global dental aerosol news in one location, with some thoughts and analysis added as to how it impacts dentists, DA’s, and Hygienists.
A little while ago, we published the first part of a series, the aptly titled “Things You Should Know Before Buying an External Aerosol Capture System - Part 1.”
Since March we’ve all seen an explosion of articles, forum posts, and products regarding aerosols and aerosol risks. The initial pandemic response in the dental and wider medical associations was a fairly predictable one: stay cautious and double down on PPE.
Rhondium Dental Labs is excited to introduce Rhondair – an Aerosol Capture System designed in New Zealand by local dentist turned serial inventor and entrepreneur Dr Simon McDonald.
One thing that we’ve had the opportunity to watch, as a New Zealand based multinational, is our own country’s response and the responses of the various countries we operate in. We’re currently in the enviable position to be able to go about our day to day operations safely, at a time when many cannot.
Here at Rhondium, we’ve been busy behind the scenes developing the Rhondair Aerosol Capture System. On the off-chance you haven’t heard us shouting about it from the rooftops yet , the Rhondair Aerosol Capture System is designed to reduce the harmful impacts of dental aerosols by capturing them at the source.
As we've witnessed most recently, along with the rest of the world, New Zealanders certainly know a thing or two about how best to get things done!
…In light of which, it might surprise you to learn that NZ was the very birthplace of the OVC – which is now in its 6th year on the market!
With many Australian Dentists having also caught onto the hype, it is no wonder why over 40,000 units have been sold – and why the OVC is still making waves in the Australasian dental market.
