Covid-19 Protocol

Covid-19 Protocol

Our office is committed to the highest standard of dentistry and that includes taking all additional measures to ensure the health and wellness of our amazing patients and brave staff. Below is a list of the changes we have made to ensure every single person feels safe in our office.

Pre-Screening Form

An electronic form to screen for COVID-19 is emailed to our patients one day prior to the dental appointment. Questions include common symptoms of COVID-19 as well questions pertaining recent travel activity. 

Patient Protection Protocol

Face Masks are required upon entering our office, only to be removed when reaching the treatment room.

When patients are checked in at the front desk, they are instructed to follow a sequence of procedures including hand sanitation, non-contact temperature readings, antimicrobial mouth rinse and more!

Social Distancing Practices

No more hugs and handshakes for now!

  • In the past, our patients were greeted with a handshake by our clinical staff and escorted down the hallway to their treatment rooms. Now, patients will be directed to their treatment room.
  • Our consultation room will be used as a second waiting room in case of overflow.
  • If avoidable, parents and family members are asked to not enter operatories.

Scheduling Changes

Morning appointments are prioritized for patients who are over the age of 60 as well as those who have kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes or auto-immune disorders. 

Appointments are spaced to limit contact between patients.

Air Purification

We have installed a medical-grade HEPA air filter and configured our HVAC system for negative pressure and ionization.

Minimized Dental Aerosol

Our clinical team will be using the Isolite mouthpiece, an extremely high volume suction device, for all dental procedures which helps minimize more than 90% of spray. 

Additional P.P.E for our Clinical Team

Our Clinical team members are outfitted with CDC-approved P.P.E from head to toe. Face-shields, gowns and all!

In-office Laundry for Uniforms

Our clinical team changes in and out of their scrubs upon arrival and prior to leaving the office, ensuring scrubs are left for daily wash.

Frequent Disinfection of All Areas

As before, all treatment rooms are sterilized with OSCHA-approved disinfection products. Throughout the day, our team disinfects common areas and high-use surfaces like doorknobs. Our cleaning crew comes in after close to thoroughly clean all surfaces.
