Our Commitment to Safety
We recognize times have changed. Priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff and patients. With this in mind we are happy to share some additional steps we are taking to make every visit to our office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standard of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental practices.
Our goal is to add peace of mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is an ongoing commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.
We are in this together! Never underestimate the power of a smile!
Advanced Staff Training
Each member of our team has completed additional awareness and prevention programs to enhance their knowledge and preparedness
Each day, one person will be designated to guide our Commitment to Safety. This includes greeting patients, answering questions, ensuring social distancing, and overall monitoring.
Daily Health Checks of Our Team
No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing, and able to provide safe dental care- every day.
No Handshakes or Hugs
We truly do love our patients. However, we will save our hearty welcomes and goodbyes for a later date when things are “back to normal”.
Personal Hygiene Standards
Along with short hair or pulling hair back; this means no long fingernails, no jewelry, and no watches for any team member while in the office.
Change Work Clothes at Work
As always, we change into and out of our newly cleaned scrubs at the office, every day
In addition to brushing and flossing before your visit, we will provide you with a swig of Peroxyl to swish in your mouth 2x for 30 seconds each before we start.
Virtual Waiting Room
Now, you can check-in from your car. As a result, you are able to minimize contact with others, bypass the reception area, and go directly to your treatment room.
Pre-Screening of Every Patient
A quick health questionnaire and a no-touch temperature check will be completed when you arrive at our office.
Hospital-Grade Hand Sanitizing Station
Every patient will be asked to not wear gloves but to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our practice.
Cleaning After Every Appointment
As always, we are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment, and surfaces in each operatory after each patient.
N95 & ASTM Level 3 Masks
The beautiful smiles of our clinical team will be protected behind masks at all times- don’t worry, we are smiling behind those masks
Masks are not enough. Our clinical team will also protect you and themselves through the use of face shields.
Protective Coats and hats
Our team will be changing outerwear between every patient to minimize the spread or absorption of airborne particles
Advanced Chairside Suction
Whenever possible, we will activate high speed evacuation to minimize aerosol contamination and improve air quality
Our air has never been cleaner. We have added HEPA-grade filters and ionization units throughout the office.
No Magazines or Activities
This may make our reception room a little less exciting, but it makes it much safer.
Installed Clear Barriers
Hard plastic guards have been placed at the front desk to block airborne particles
