COVID Guidelines


Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Saefty and Health Administration. We’ve recently added the following safety protocols:
•  Screen Before and During Visit: we will ask patients standard questions 1 day ahead of appointment and during check-in (from the car) before patients enter facility and perform procedures. This is to stop COVID-19 at the gates.
•  Sanitization Checkpoint and Temperature Checks: everyone entering the dental practice will have hands sanitized and touchless temperature check taken. Sanitized pens will be provided for any forms signed. Everyone entering must have a mask. All surfaces touched will be sanitized throughout the day and after being touched.
•  Decontamination Champion (DC): we have a dedicated safety officer, our “DC”, who is an expert in all our safety protocols. Each team member is also responsible for understanding and executing all safety protocols.
•  Sterilization and Operatory Preparation: Prior to and after seating any patients, all equipment and work surfaces are properly disinfected. All instruments are sterilized. All patients have new chair covers and bibs provided. Sterilization equipment is tested daily for effectiveness.
•  Office Cleaning: All work areas and touch points are disinfected throughout the day and at the end of the day. All floors are washed and equipment disinfected. This is in addition to professional cleaning already performed.
•  Social Distancing: We limit the # of patients in the office at one time. We encourage patients to show up by themselves or with a parent/guardian/helper only if absolutely necessary during the “Slow the Spread” state and federal mandates.
