We are committed to keeping our patients healthy as we continue to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety of our patients and staff has always been our number one priority.
Our practice rigorously follows the Centers for Disease Control’s Infection Control Guidelines for Dental Practices. We have state-of-the-art infection control policies, procedures and systems in place that demonstrate safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare that meet or exceed the Centers for Disease Control’s standards for Dental Practices.
During these uncertain times we urge you to take care of yourself, this includes seeing your healthcare providers. Our clinicians and team members remain here to assist you with your dental needs and are available to answer any questions you might have.
Additional measures we are taking to further protect our patients and team members:
- In our office we have added medical grade HEPA filtration units to each operatory room, the front desk, and waiting room. These units clean and exchange the air in each room every 15 minutes to ensure we filter out any and all airborne particles.
- Our staff wear all proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as gowns, gloves, face masks, shields etc. and regularly change our gear throughout the day.
- Daily temperature readings of all team members and patients
- Social distancing for our staff as well as patients
- We are disinfecting all rooms and surfaces thoroughly throughout the day including a full wipedown of operatory rooms between patients.
