COVID-19 Protocols

We are proud that our infection control has always been our top priority in our practice. Our office follows the recommendations made by the American Dental Association, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
  • PPE-masks, scrubs, gowns, face shields.
  • Sanitizing and disinfecting high contact surface area between patients
  • A dedicated, on-site sterilization room
  • Individual treatment rooms for less contact between patients
In addition to our high practice standards we have implemented the following:
  • Our office will communicate with you before your scheduled appointment to ask some screening questions.  Please take the time to fill out the forms emailed or texted to you prior to your appointment.
  • Appointment times will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. To assist in keeping with this guideline, we ask that you wait in your car until your appointment time.  We ask that you please be on time to help keep us on schedule.
  • We ask that you please wear a mask upon entering. Please use the available hand sanitizer while your temperature is taken.
  • In the treatment room, we ask that you use an oral rinse prior to your dental service.
  • A protective barrier between arriving patients and our front office team
  • High level 4 stage HEPA filter, UV light air purifiers will be in each treatment room.
  • Special equipment and procedures will be utilized to limit aerosols.
  • We ask that you use the back door upon exiting to limit patient interaction.

Extraoral Dental Suction System

In the wake of the recent global pandemic, in addition to our ongoing strict guidelines with regards to CDC mandates and “universal precautions”, we are pleased to announce an additional layer of safety we have added to facilitate the care and protection of both our patients and our staff.

The Extraoral Dental Suction System, provides additional high volume removal of droplets and aerosols associated with dental care. With an extensive medical grade filtration system, along with a UV light disinfectant, viral and germ products will be eliminated.

From personal protection (safety eyewear/mask/gloves/fluid resistant wear) to complete sterilization of all instrumentation to infection control protocol in all operatories, laboratories, bathroom facilities, hallways, front office reception area complete throughout our waiting room we are there to provide dental care in a safe and comfortable environment. We have extensive hand-washing protocols for all staff members in place. We meet the highest standard in training, including monthly testing and an annual training session with our OSHA compliance coordinato.

We are confident the Extraoral Dental Suction is a great addition to our safety protocol.
