Our priority as your dental care provider has always been to preserve and protect your health and safety. As usual, we continue to follow all guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA and the ADA. We have always provided a sterile, safe, environment to protect your health, both oral and otherwise.
An outline of some of our precautionary measures:
No-Wait Waiting Room
Upon your arrival at the office please call and a team member will come to let you in the building. When greeted at the door we will take your temperature and ask you a few questions pertaining to your contact with Covid-19.
Proper handwashing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings.
Personal Protective Equipment
There is a Sneeze Guard at the front desk to allow comfortable safe interaction. We possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, gloves, protective eyewear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents.
Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and Devices
All Instruments and equipment used during your care are always sterilized and disinfected to CDC specifications. This ensures proper infection control and the health of our patients and staff. Every item used is opened fresh from a sterilized packet or is a brand-new disposable item. The sterilization process is very rigorous and includes dry heat sterilization (autoclave) and chemical sterilization.
An Air scrubber has been installed to keep the air purified. We would like to inform you that the office will be chilly as the requirements for the system to work is always to have the air conditioner running Please dress accordingly
Once in the operatory room, you will be asked to rinse with a non-alcohol mouth rinse. Common touchpoints, including seating, workspaces, door handles, railings, and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill bacteria and viruses. Our entire operatory is disinfected after every appointment with EPA registered cleaning agents to kill viruses and bacteria.
