“I’m a dentist just like you. I saw a need and decided to do something about it.”
As a 68-year old general dentist who has been practicing since 1973, I developed the NanoPure™ water purification system after I opened a new office in 2003. I noticed the dental unit reservoir water bottle and asked “what it this for?” The salesman stated it was now a “necessary” part of all dental/hygiene units. Again I asked “why?” It seems the dental community had FINALLY recognized the “bio-layer” which was present in most dental/hygiene units and the catastrophic affect it could have on the patient’s wellbeing.
I looked into this potential problem and decided an Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG) was the answer to the problem as it produced distilled water from the atmosphere (high humidity). Since I live in Florida, it was the perfect answer. Boy was I wrong!
After five years of development, my team developed an AWG that could be placed in your dental office, hooked up to the main water line going to each dental/hygiene unit. It was a beautiful solution! Guess what? It didn’t work for the “long term”! Within one day, ALL the humidity was sucked out of my office. The AWG was running, but not producing enough water (lack of humidity) for the dental/hygiene units to run properly. “Please tell Mrs. Jones she needs to wait for the AWG to produce more water so I can use my hi-speed for her appointment.” The AWG was a complete FLOP!
Fortunately, one of my team members mentioned that there was this new technology called “nanotechnology” which was the new 21st century process to really look into. It was the answer! I no longer needed to have humidity. I could take city water, run the water through the NanoPure™ media and test the purified water to check my results. I had an unlimited supply of water with ALL the primary EPA contaminants already removed (i.e. mercury, arsenic, etc.). I decided to test for the secondary EPA contaminants (i.e. copper, zinc, iron, chlorine, aluminum, sulfuric acid, etc.) and bacteria. These are the contaminants your city water authority tests for, but DO NOT have to eliminate? They are only required to “monitor” the levels of the contaminants. After testing and documenting for five years, it works!!
I now decided to approach the ADA with my findings. Talking with the ADA, I found out I had just missed the ADA trial for removing bacteria from the dental water lines. The results can be found in the ADA Journal, September 22, 2014 issue. From this study (1 off the shelf product was tested only), Sterisil became a dental household name and product that every dentist had to have in their office.
Since the ADA told me there would not be another test for water filters for approximately six years, I decided to have my NanoPure™ tested at the highest rated water evaluation site in the US – Utah State University (USU). Remember, I live in Florida, but I went out to Utah, met the department head of their water department testing site and gave him the protocol the ADA used to run their test. USU used 3 (not 1 off the shelf as the ADA used) of my NanoPure™ retrofit filters and whereas the ADA tested a maximum of 500 CFUs of the bacteria in their study, USU tested 2400 CFUs of bacteria (5x). The end result was 99.9% of the bacteria was eliminated! Think about this. Under the same conditions, NanoPure™ (3 separate retrofit filters) eliminated five times the bacteria!!
Which would you rather have?
In the late 19th century, Louis Pasteur demonstrated the decontaminating properties of silver.
Later came the idea of combining the absorbent properties of activated carbon with the antibacterial power of silver.
The methods used did not succeed in bonding these two materials with sufficient stability to prevent the release of the silver.
From 1993, the latest technological advances in the fields of vacuum and plasma environments have enabled scientists to design a completely stable product that delivers all the benefits of activated carbon without its drawbacks.
The resulting process is called NanoPure™.
This process is the basis for a range of compact treatment units that meet all health quality requirements and all needs.
