Healthy Business Tips: One Manhattan Dental and the importance of an air purifier in the dental office
Healthy smiles start with healthy air
One Manhattan Dental in New York, New York, is a dental office featuring a dedicated team of four prosthodontists—professionals who practice both general dentistry and specialized care. These dental professionals are well known in their field, having even appeared on WPIX last fall to share their tips for healthy oral hygiene. Most recently, they’ve been encouraging patients to safely continue their appointments amidst the pandemic. That’s why they’ve installed a Coway Airmega in their own dental office.
“Our goal is to create the safest environment for our team and patients. Air management is an essential part of this.” – Dr. Robert Raimondi, D.D.S.
Taking care of patients in more ways than one
Dr. Raimondi emphasizes the necessity of clean air in his team’s line of work. “The nature of our profession and the act of taking care of our patients introduces aerosols and droplets into the environment.” In the age of COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to capture these particles, and the four-stage air filtration system of the Coway Airmega AP-1512HH does just that. A pre-filter, an odor filter, a true HEPA filter and a bipolar device all work together to reduce unwanted airborne contaminants.
By introducing this air purifier into their space and by tripling the time between appointments, the One Manhattan Dental team is helping patients breathe easier.
State-of-the-art air purification
“We have 20 HEPA air filters positioned throughout our practice in every space. Knowing the air is clean helps us to be focused on the patients’ needs.”
The Coway Airmega AP-1512HH can create and maintain pure air in rooms up to 361 square feet, just like the ones in One Manhattan Dental’s office. It also features an energy-saving eco mode, automatic speed control based on air particles and an intuitive air quality indicator. Plus, it will let you know when it’s time to change the filter.

1Coway air purifiers has been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.
4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S
5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
