Our Mission is to Keep You

Healthy & Comfortable!

Per CDC guidelines, PGD has placed high quality, HEPA filtered air cleaners at the foot of each treatment chair (and in our entrance area).

Going far beyond CDC guidance, we were the first medical practice to “double up” on our air filtration efforts by adding the new “Clean Air Curtain 800 Series” air purifiers.

These six units (designed by Air Cleaners, Inc. of Bristol) are deployed above eye-level in each treatment area. Each Clean Air Curtain combines a HEPA filter with a UV-C bulb (which irradiates the air within the unit after it passes through the HEPA filter)
