We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few years, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
What We’ve Always Done
Our office follows safety protocols made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Rest assured knowing that:
- We sterilize any and all dental instruments after use, or after the sterile seal has been broken. We use FDA-approved sterilizers for all our instruments, and if an instrument is unable to be sterilized, we dispose of it properly after a single use.
- We use EPA-registered disinfectants to clean our entire office. We have always used these disinfectants to clean every surface touched during a procedure between every patient.
- We have always had ventilation systems that help remove particles from the air and help circulate air flow throughout our offices.
- We have hand sinks and hand sanitizer available to patients throughout our office.
Here’s the new routine you should expect when visiting our office:
- We have significantly heightened our already stringent protocols of sterilization and infection control in the office, and we are regularly disinfecting common areas, patient rooms, and all surfaces that are frequently touched.
- We have installed HEPA Air Cleaners throughout multiple points of our office.
- All members of our team are being evaluated daily for illness and health concerns, and we are utilizing personal protective equipment (PPE) for examinations and treatments.
- We have taken precautions in terms of scheduling to limit the amount of people entering and leaving the office at the same time.
What You Can Do
We are doing everything in our power to keep you safe! Here’s how you can do your part to keep yourself, other patients, and our team members safe:
- Please arrive at your appointment on time so that we can minimize the number of people in the office environment at one time.
- Hand sanitizer will be available at multiple points throughout the office. We ask that you please utilize the hand sanitizing solution.
- We ask that you respect mask mandates and the social distancing measures recommended by local, state, and federal health authorities.
- If you have a fever or are feeling symptoms of any type of illness, we ask that you contact us to reschedule your appointment
If you would rather not visit the office at this time, please note that we are still offering Virtual Consultations.
