COVID Protocol

Our response to Covid-19

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.  Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office.  Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep our patients and team safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the CDC and OSHA. We follow the guidance of these agencies so that we are complying with any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team members. For example: 

When you arrive to our clinic, we will take your temperature and your provider will ask a set of health-related questions.

We have hand sanitizer and will ask you to use when you enter the office.

You will see that our reception area no longer offers newspapers, magazines, children’s toys, since those items are difficult to disinfect.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception areas at any one time.

We will also be wearing additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at all times. We are sorry we won’t be able to greet you with a smile!

All patients and visitors are required to arrive wearing a face mask.

We have added AeraMax Professional commercial grade HEPA air purifiers to all treatment rooms and reception areas. They turn over the air every 6 minutes.

We have invested in new high-volume evacuation systems to limit or reduce the aerosols that can be created during dental procedures.

All surfaces are wiped down between patients, and, of course, all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols are enforced and implemented in every way.
