As he continued delivering great quality orthodontic treatment, sometimes to third generation patients, Garcia Orthodontics outgrew its office space.
A new 5000 square foot orthodontic office was now in the practice’s future.
“During our ideation and design process, we sat down with the architect and engineers to envision a modern, clean and visually appealing new office. At the same time, it was extremely important to incorporate elements to ensure the health and safety of staff and patients alike. In our constant effort to improve, we prioritized air quality. Maintaining clean air was non-negotiable as it is part of our promise to deliver the very best for our patients and staff,” said Dr. Garcia
With particulate matter, viruses, bacteria and chemicals as primary concerns, Dr. Garcia began his search for the best solution. In his research he soon discovered IQAir. As the project was nearing completion, other items took priority. However, the infrastructure of the new office was prepared to enable the addition of an air filtration system at a later date.
Dr. Garcia and his staff began 2020 their new state-of-the-art facility. In early January, news about a respiratory disease outbreak in Wuhan, China came to the world’s attention.
“I have a deep understanding of epidemiology and began closely following the developing crisis,” said Dr. Garcia. “When the World Health Organization declared SARS-Cov2 and the resulting illness COVID-19 a pandemic, I immediately completed the acquisition of air filtration equipment for our new office. The engineering, design and quality of IQAir’s products made my decision easy.”
With the addition of IQAir’s GC Multigas System, patients and staff of Garcia Orthodontics were now protected from Coronavirus as well as other airborne pollutants.
“Science has clearly shown how better air quality has a direct impact on health. We have silently and helplessly accepted global pollution and toxic volatile organic compounds everywhere. I hope this pandemic is enough of a wakeup call to make everyone understand the importance of air quality and air filtration,” said Dr. Garcia.
