Your safety and the safety of our staff remain our highest priority. In order to ensure your well-being, we are initiating the following protocols:
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.
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.
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".
We enjoy starting every new patient visit by showing off our amazing practice. These tours will have to wait for your next visit.
In the past, you might have seen us at the grocery store in our stylish scrubs. No longer. Now, 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 an hydrogen peroxide solution to rinse in your mouth for 60 seconds and reduce bacteria.
Minimizing cross-contamination is an important part of our plan. We will ask you to dispose of any outside gloves before you enter.
Plain and simple, we are not seeing as many patients. We are allocating more time between visits for coming, going and cleaning.
A quick health questionnaire and consent form along with a no-touch temperature check will be completed when you arrive at our office.
In an effort to save you time and multiple exposures, we are offering extended appointments. This allows us to do more dentistry in a single visit.
We are now able to see up to 6 family members during the same visit. It is almost like your own, private dental experience.
Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our practice.
Fewer chairs in our reception area, helpful signs and one-way traffic in our treatment area make 6’ spacing a practical reality.
We are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment and surfaces in each operatory after every patient.
Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down.
This is standard procedure at all times, and nothing has changed. Anything that goes near your mouth is heat and pressure cleaned between every use.
The beautiful smiles of our clinical team – dentists, hygienists, and assistants – will be protected behind double-masking at all times.
Two masks are not enough. Our clinical team will also protect you and themselves through the use of FDA Approved PET face shields.
When appropriate, our team will utilize another layer of protection to minimize the spread or absorption of airborne particles.
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 to our HVAC system along with stand-alone air cleaners in each operatory.
This may make our reception area a little less exciting, but it makes it much safer as well.
