In 2012, Dr. Francisco Garcia took the helm of a well-established orthodontics practice, and he was confident of its success. Garcia Orthodontics had been serving the Kendall and greater Miami metropolitan area for over forty years, earning a stellar reputation and a loyal customer base.
Under Dr. Garcia's stewardship, the practice grew, and a new 5,000 square-foot office was planned. During the design process, Dr. Garcia sought to create a modern, clean, and visually appealing new office, with the health and safety of staff and patients as top priorities. Of course, clean air was one of the chief concerns.

Garcia Orthodontics Turns to IQAir
"Maintaining clean air was non-negotiable. It is part of our promise to deliver the very best for our patients and staff," Dr. Garcia said. In his search for the best solution to mitigate particulate matter, viruses, bacteria, and chemicals, Dr. Garcia discovered IQAir's top-rated air purifiers.
In collaboration with IQAir’s team of experts, and recognizing the comprehensive protection that these systems could provide to his busy dental practice, Dr. Garcia installed five IQAir Dental Hg FlexVac air purification systems. Combined with intraoral suction, these IQAir extraoral suction air purifiers were placed right at the patient source—reducing the aerosol levels, bacterial colonies, and airborne viral particles from dental procedures to nearly zero.
Strategically located, the IQAir systems continuously circulate and purify the air across the entire office space, ensuring maximum filtration and maintaining the highest standard of air quality.
IQAir’s Systems Protected Against COVID-19
In early 2020, just as Dr. Garcia and his team were settling into the new space, the news of a respiratory disease outbreak in Wuhan, China broke out.
