At Fine Dental Care, we are committed to the health and safety of our patients. Our team uses only the safest, most effective cleaning and dental sanitization products to maintain a healthy environment. All of our sanitization protocols are in line with the American Dental Association (ADA), Occupational Safety And Health Administration (OSHA), and the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) to keep you and your family safe. That is why Dr. Bruce Fine and the entire team is proud to use hypochlorous acid at our Wayne dental practice.

In recent months, hypochlorous acid has become one of the most effective and safest sanitized disinfectants in the fight against coronavirus. Learn more about this powerful sanitization solution, and how we use it at our practice to stop the spread and maintain the highest standards of patient care and safety.

What Is Hypochlorous Acid?

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a gentle, natural cleaning solution. Consisting of salt, water, and vinegar that has been charged with an electric current, this simple solution becomes a powerful multipurpose disinfectant, deodorizer, and cleaner. It is approved by the Food And Drug Administration (FDA) and has been successfully used to sanitize hospitals and medical practices across the globe for many years. When used as directed, it successfully kills many types of disease-causing germs and bacteria.

Natural Germ-killing Power

Hypochlorous acid is proved to kill 99.9% of bacteria and germs, including Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria. It is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is on List N, their list of disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.

As a hospital-grade disinfectant, hypochlorous acid kills microbes without the need for bleach and other harmful chemicals. It does not leave behind a film or residue. The common medical applications for hypochlorous acid also include wound healing, wound care, and eye care.

Due to its broad range of uses, hypochlorous acid can currently be found in hospitals, intensive care units, emergency rooms, and veterinary hospitals. It is also used to disinfect surfaces in schools, daycares, and preschools. This makes it an ideal disinfectant in our dental practice as an alternative to other chemical cleaning products.

Gentle On The Face And Skin

Because it contains no harsh, caustic, or toxic chemicals, hypochlorous acid is safe on high-touch surfaces. It is also free of allergens and irritants and is completely organic. This makes it perfect for use around patients of all ages. You can rest easy knowing that the products we use are gentle, natural, and safe around your children and family.

How Fine Dental Care Is Fighting COVID-19
