Advanced COVID Related Technologies
JADE Surgically Clean Air Purifier
To show how Fairview Mall Dental Centre is continuously implementing health and safety measures in response to the COVID19 pandemic, we would like to take the time to introduce you to a few of our technologies that we have since implemented into our office.
First up is the Jade – Surgically Clean Air air purifier unit – one of the most sophisticated air purifying systems in the world. We have installed these into our rooms, which exchanges and purifies the air in the room around 23 times per hour. It has 3 built-in technologies.
- The first is a HEPA-RX filter that is designed to remove 99.998% of particles 0.1 micron in size.
- The second is activated carbon designed to remove chemicals and VOCs.
- The third one is high intensity UV light designed to destroy what’s left.
PUREVAC HVE System Kit
Next up on our list is the Purevac HVE System Kit. The Purevac HVE System enables a one-handed approach to evacuating fluid and debris while also facilitating with retraction, visibility, and illumination during dental procedures.
eKlean 50 and Bure Fogger
With the eKlean 50, we are able to generate hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is also known as nature’s powerful disinfectant, meaning it’s completely safe and non-toxic!
The hypochlorous acid is then inserted into the Bure Fogger and acts as a gentle spray, making cleaning and sanitizing the office much more efficient!
Surgically Clean Air
Our proprietory HEPA-Rx filters meet or exceed the guidelines for general surgery applications.
The Surgically Clean Air system offers superior air cleaning through a sophisticated filtration system, high volume air flow capacity and lower sound levels. Read More…

Criticare Pulse Oximeter Unit
Criticare Pulse oximeter unit is an extremely accurate monitor to check the heart function by measuring the blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation of the blood. We use this unit to continuously monitor the patient throughout the entire conscious sedation case or to do a Spot-check prior to any surgery in our office.
Bluephase Curing Light
Each room is equipped with this Advanced LED curing light used to efficiently cure our composite material.
This battery-operated Bluephase LED unit is on a proven mission: With a light intensity of 1,200 mW/cm2, three proven programs and a rotatable light probe with a diameter of 10 mm, it is the classic among the Bluephase products.

Magnifying Loupes and Head LED Light
Dr. Zogby and our hygienist wear magnifying loupes and head lights at all times while treating patients to achieve great perfection in performance. In fact Dr. Zogby has specific ones with magnification of 5.5 that she uses exclusively while performing root canals. This extra magnification has allowed her to perform very complex root canals cases.
Gendex Digital Sensor/X-Rays
Utilizing the latest sensor technology, the GXS system delivers real-time images of truly amazing clarity and detail — greatly supporting diagnosis and treatment.
Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Not only do digital x-rays expose patients and staff to up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays, they also have the following additional benefits: They are better for the environment because they don’t require developing. They can be viewed on a computer monitor within seconds of taking the image.
Acucam Intra-Oral Camera
The Acucam intraoral camera is a video camera system for taking intraoral images. The system consists of a handpiece that is connected to a docking station via a flexible monocoil cable. Dr. Zogby uses this camera very regularly to show patients their problem areas. It is one of her great way to communicate to the patient about their oral condition.
Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option Dr. Zogby may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures.
Dr. Zogby uses nitrous oxide several times every day mostly with kids to relax them and that eliminates the need to use the needle to give them local anesthetic during baby teeth treatments. She also uses it during her conscious sedation cases on adults or sometimes by itself on anxious adults.
Statim and M11 Ultraclave
Statim is the fastest cassette sterilizer from start to sterile.
- Using only a small amount of water for each cycle, the STATIM heats and converts to steam in mere seconds.
- The innovative design of STATIM’s fully removable chamber allows for quick heating and cooling.
- A complete solution: rapid sterilization with rapid drying via the STATIM Dri-Tec drying technology.
The Midmark M11 UltraClave Automatic Sterilizer is designed to be reliable and easy to use. With one of the largest chamber sizes of any tabletop autoclave on the market, the M11 can optimize sterilization output – reducing time and effort, but not effectiveness.
Efficiency and capacity go hand in hand. Increase your practice’s efficiency when you increase your instrument processing capacity.
With-in our in-office lab we use this water base model trimmer to achieve precise shapes.
Germiphene B-safe: in our office our sterilizers are tested daily and monthly to make sure it is working at high level. In fact the results are posted in the reception area to be transparent to our patients about how the office functions
Dr Rana Zogby is now using the DentalVibe with her injections to make sure the injections are pain-free. The DentalVibe causes the tissues around the injection site to vibrate while anesthesia is administered. Research has shown that when vibration and injection sensations are occurring simultaneously, the vibration feeling reaches the brain first and essentially blocks the feeling of the injection from being perceived.
Needle fears keep many people away from the dentist. Postponing dental procedures because of these fears is common, but ultimately results in worsening problems and other serious oral health concerns. 95% of the patients that have experienced the DentalVibe say that it has changed their view on going to the dentist.
Ostell ISQ unit
Ostell ISQ unit: Is a technology we have to measure implant stability. This devise gives us the ISQ value when the tip is placed on a probe connected to the implant. High stability means >70 ISQ, between 60-69 is medium stability and < 60 ISQ is considered as low stability. Dr. Zogby uses this technology in every step of her implant procedure whether at surgery time or restorative time so she has a very dependable measuring reference to assess how stable is the implant and how well it is doing. This way there is not guessing involved.
Root Canal Equipment
1. Root ZX II apex locator
An electronic apex locator is an electronic device used in endodontics to determine the position of the apical constriction and thus determine the length of the root canal space. This reduces the need to expose to patient to radiation by taking multiple x-rays. This specific apex locator is the World’s best selling apex locator with 97.5% accuracy rate
2. Wave One
WaveOne has set a new standard in root canal shaping. WaveOne GOLD brings to the endodontic procedure a metallurgically advanced single-file technique for shaping canals. Further, we optimized the tip diameters, tapers, and the crosssection to produce a file that really improves safety, efficiency and flexibility when preparing canals. WaveOne GOLD takes simplicity and treatment success to another level.
