Preparing for Your Safety
We’ve taken extra time to understand how this evolving situation affects both our patients and employees, and what necessary adjustments we’ll be making to keep everyone safe. To maximize safety, we’re implementing the following measures:
Education & Training for Employees
- Employees are trained on the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks, eye cap protections, and shoe covers before any physical contact with patients.
- Everyone on our team has had additional training on appropriate hand washing and sterilization techniques following the guidelines set forth by the CDC.
Employee Recommendations & Screening
- All staff will be screened at the beginning and end of each shift. Anyone with respiratory infection symptoms or an elevated temperature will be sent home.
- When employees are at home, they must wash all scrubs/clothing used at the office with detergent and hot water before returning to their shift.
- All staff are wearing KN95 masks and face shields
Patient Recommendations Upon Arrival
- We’ll reschedule your appointment if it’s determined that you may have symptoms of a respiratory infection or your temperature is too high during your pre-screening.
- To promote social distancing, we’re limiting the number of patients in our waiting rooms and you may opt to wait in the car or outside until we’re ready to call you in. Please remember to also keep a minimum 6-foot distance between each other.
- Upon arrival, bring a mask or face cloth to cover your nose and mouth. If you do not have a covering, our office will provide you with one as well as other anti-disinfectant supplies for you to use at your disposal.
Sterilization & Cleaning Before & After Treatment
- Hand sanitizer stations within reach throughout the office
- We will frequently wipe down operating and waiting rooms, as well as tables, door handles, light switches, etc.
- We are following the proper cleaning procedures consistently and correctly by applying EPA-registered disinfectant to frequently touched objects and surfaces to help reduce bacteria and other pathogens
Disinfectant and Air Filtration Systems
- HEPA air filter units throughout with upgraded MERV 13 air filters
- UV-C light air purification/filtration devices in our ventilation system
- Air Purifiers with special internal UV light in each room to cleanse the air
- Disinfectant Fogging before and after each patient to further cleanse the air
- Placed high volume extra-oral evacuation suction units to capture aerosols not caught by suctions devices
