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.
