Our Safety Protocols
Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission
Infection Control Protocols
- Temperature screening via non contact infrared digital thermometer for all staff daily and patients prior to treatment
- Pretreatment hand sanitizer and antimicrobial mouthrinse for all patients
- All staff will practice appropriate social distancing and handwashing standards at all times
- Staff will wear dental surgical masks at all times
- During treatment, PPE worn by staff will include:
- Mask (including N95 masks)
- Face shields
- Surgical gowns
- Our reception area is now open with social distancing guidelines, and you may come into the office for check-in. When you check in, we will check your temperature and have you fill out our COVID-19 questionnaire as well as your patient paperwork.
- Please wear a mask or face covering when entering the office.
- When you are escorted to your treatment room, you will be asked to swish with a 1% hydrogen peroxide rinse. (Coronavirus (COVID-19) is vulnerable to oxidation and this rinse will help reduce the salivary load of oral microbes.) Your reservation will then proceed as normal.
- Only the patient will be allowed to enter the office. (The only exception is if the patient is under the age of 18 then they are allowed to be accompanied by one parent.) Spouses, siblings, grandparents, friends, etc. should remain outside in their vehicles. If you require a driver, have your driver leave a phone number with our concierge and we will call your ride when your reservation is completed.
- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in our office at any one time.
- Reservation times have been altered to allow for disinfection and social distancing between patients. This may mean that you will be offered fewer options when scheduling your reservation.
- If you have traveled domestically or internationally or have been in contact with someone who has, or you or a family member has recently been sick with a fever, cough, or shortness of breath we ask that you please notify our team so that proper precautions can be taken.
