Client: Queen Street Dental
Queen Street Dental, located right at the heart of Auckland’s Central Business District, specialises in oral health and offers a full range of services, from general dentistry to cosmetic dentistry. They recognise the importance of indoor air quality by providing a safe and hygienic environment for both their patients and staff.
Putting Patients and Staff at Ease with a Safe Indoor Air Quality
Concern for indoor air quality is more evident now than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic, more so for a dental clinic that consults patients everyday. Therefore, the demand for better indoor air quality has increased to minimise the risk of bacterial or viral infections.
When Queen Street Dental resumed its dental practices during the on-going pandemic, staff’s comfort and safety at the clinic became its top priorities. Equally, patients were more anxious about the potential health risks of having dental treatment in an enclosed indoor space. While precautionary methods were in place, Queen Street Dental is committed to continually providing quality indoor air in its premises; beneficial for the future, post-pandemic.

Solutions & Technology Applied
Queen Street Dental has opted for Panasonic’s patented air purification technology, nanoe™ X by installing 8 air-e ceiling mounted nanoe™ X generators to provide continuous clean indoor air in its premises.

The air-e ceiling mounted nanoe™ X generators are compact in size, offering ease of installation with a neat appearance for any environment.
Panasonic nanoe™ X technology offers the benefits of hydroxyl radicals (also known as OH radicals) contained in water which have the capacity to inhibit bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants as well as deodorising odors. The nano-sized particles of nanoe™ X allow for deep penetration into soft furnishings like fabric, sofas, and carpets. nanoe™ technology is proven to effectively inhibit up to 99%* of novel coronavirus.
With the implementation of Panasonic nanoe™ X technology, the indoor air of the dental clinic is constantly purified, providing patients a more comfortable and reassuring treatment experience, and at the same time, thoroughly protecting its staff.

*Based on Panasonic verification test in collaboration with the Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Center (QTEC), the virus titers of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and its four variants (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta) were compared in a 45-liter test space with and without exposure to nanoe™. As a result, the test confirmed an inhibitory effect of more than 99% on all five types of viruses after two hours of exposure. Note that the verification results are based on the test in a closed test environment and not in a space actually in use.
