Coronavirus Safety Measures
How Our Team is Keeping Patients Safe
Our priority as your dental care provider has always been to provide our patients and our team with a safe, comfortable dental home. As usual, we continue to follow all guidelines set forth by OSHA and the ADA in order to provide a clean, safe, environment in which to protect your health, both oral and otherwise. We are in this together.
Here are some of the things our dental team is doing to ensure your safety:
Proper hand washing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings.
Personal Protective Equipment
We possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, gloves, protective eye wear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents.
Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and Devices
Instruments and equipment used in your care are all regularly sterilized and disinfected to ensure that your health is maintained. Items such as surgical instruments and mouth mirrors are all subject to rigorous cleanings.
The Use of Ozonated Water
Our team makes use of ozonated water to wipe out biofilms, including bacteria and viruses in our dental delivery units. This equipment is also used as a pre-rinse for all patients. 100x more potent than bleach, this antimicrobial agent helps to ensure our equipment is kept sanitary at all times.
Common touch points, including seating, work spaces, door handles, railings and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill viruses.
