COVID-19 Precautions

YOUR SAFETY COMES FIRST!

During the past months, we have been following every applicable federal, state and local regulation to develop protocols and purchase protective equipment that will ensure everyone’s safety. We have always been committed to the highest standards of infection control and in line with that, we have taken the following additional measures:

  • Equipping each patient room in our office with an individual medical grade air sterilizing and purifying system. Each unit has a medical grade HEPA-Rx Filter and UV Sterilization. This is considered one of the most advanced standalone in the market.
  • Taking staff’s temperature as they arrive at the office every day
  • Scheduling fewer appointments to allow greater time between patients and maintain adequate social distancing
  • Screening patients before they come to their appointment: Patients who in the past 2-3 weeks have had fever, shortness of breath, cough, gastrointestinal upset, headache, fatigue, or loss of taste or smell; or have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19; or have traveled to any regions heavily affected by COVID-19 are being asked to postpone dental visits for at least 3 weeks 
  • Removing some of the chairs in the reception area to maintain proper social distancing
  • Removing magazines, children’s books and toys in the waiting room
  • Taking all patient’s temperature when they come in
  • Requesting all patients to come in wearing a mask and keep it on till we walk them to the treatment room
  • Asking our patients to use hand sanitizers when they arrive
  • Asking every patient to rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash before any treatment
  • Limiting aerosols, and whenever aerosols are generated we are using dental dam isolation and high volume suction
  • Strictly following CDC’s up-to-date infection control recommendations, as we have always done , and making necessary changes as new updates become available

We recently resumed routine dental services and we are accepting appointments to help our patients maintain their oral health. You can contact us and let us know when you would like to schedule an appointment or if you have any other concerns. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.
Stay safe and healthy!
