Patient and Visitor Safety
Modified Scheduling for Patient Appointments
We will implement a scheduling process to ensure social distancing in our waiting areas.
Strict Hand Hygiene
Daily Screening Protocol for Patients and Staff
We assess each patient and staff member’s risk for infection with a questionnaire upon entry to our offices. If you, anyone in your family, or anyone you have been in contact with is experiencing fever, respiratory symptoms or shortness of breath, or has tested positive for COVID-19, please notify us before coming to the office.
Mandating New Sterile Office Environment Protocols
All equipment (e.g., handpieces, dental x-ray equipment, dental chair, and light) will continue to be disinfected according to manufacturer’s and CDC’s instructions. As always, all surgical instruments are cleaned and sterilized for each surgery based on manufacturer’s specifications and CDC guidelines.
Cleaning and disinfection procedures using EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant will be performed in clinical areas between each patient and to frequently touched surfaces or objects through the office. Surfaces such as door handles, chairs, desks, and bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected frequently.
Personal Protective Equipment
The surgical team will wear N95/KN95 masks along with the CDC recommended personal protective equipment during surgical procedures. The non-surgical staff will wear Level 1, 2, or 3 masks.
