We recognize times have changed. Priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff and patients.
With this in mind, we are happy to share the 10 additional steps we are taking to make every visit to our office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standards of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental practices.
Our goal is to add peace-of-mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is part of an on-going commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.
We are in this together, and we will never underestimate the power of a smile!
No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing and able to provide safe dental care – every day.
In addition to brushing and flossing before your visit, we will provide an antimicrobial solution to rinse in your mouth for 60 seconds and reduce bacteria.
Plain and simple, we are not seeing as many patients. We are allocating more time between visits for coming, going and cleaning.
Face covering and temperature measuring are required for any person entering the office.
Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down. We also use fogger and hypochlorous acid to further disinfect surfaces.
We also added air purifier units in the operatories to enhance the clean air in each room.
Our new system has bi-polar ionization. This capability allows instant killing of mold, bacteria, viruses on contact so the circulating air is cleaned.
This is an upgraded method to ensure the cleanest patient environment.
Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our practice.
Hard plastic guards have been placed strategically throughout the practice – and are cleaned regularly – to help block the movement of airborne particles.
