To Our Family of Patients
The health and wellness of our patients and staff is our highest priority. With heightened concern about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we wanted to share with you the things we are doing to be extra vigilant with our cleaning procedures. Please know that our regular health and hygiene protocol provides the best defense against the spread of most contagious diseases.
Over the last 30 years, we have followed and exceeded the guidelines and procedures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA) for disinfection and sterilization before, during, and after each patient procedure. The fact that I only treat one patient at a time further enhances this.
Since many people wonder what sort of infection control procedures are used in our dental office, but don't often ask, we thought we'd take the proactive approach and share with you how we keep your health and safety at the top of our list. It means that all surfaces in the operatory, including the dental chair, dental light, and all drawers and countertops have been cleaned and decontaminated. We also cover all working areas with protective covers and replace them with each new patient.
In the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are also being extra vigilant in our high traffic spaces and frequently touched areas – such as disinfecting our seating, countertops, doorknobs, and writing instruments. Hygiene is at the core of every sound dental practice. No doubt when you arrive at our office, you notice it is clean from top to bottom, and that familiar dentist office “clean” scent permeates the air. That fresh clean scent is a testament to our adherence to the strict guidelines set out by the ADA, and the CDC, that instruct our every move when it comes to protecting each patient.
If you have an upcoming dental appointment and are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms, which may include a fever or have traveled outside of the US within the past 14 days to a country with high levels of Coronavirus cases we ask that you call our office and we will assist you in rescheduling your appointment .
