While many things have changed, one thing remains the same: our commitment to your safety. Here is a list of some of the updates we have implemented.
Please also scroll to the bottom to see how you may plan ahead for your visits here.
OSHA/HIPAA/Medical Waste Disposal Regulations Compliance
Our entire team has been trained and is making sure to stay up to date with new protocols. We are certified through Enviromerica, the only HIPAA certified company in managed services with inspection protection in the nation, and one of the safest medical waste management services in the nation. We are made sure to be compliant with OSHA, HIPAA, and medical waste disposal regulations and have gone through all necessary specialized training. This ensures patient, staff, and office safety.
Taking Temperature & Screening
Anyone who enters our office whether you are a patient or team member will be required to Hand Sanitize properly, and will be screened including temperature taken.
You will be asked a series of questions to properly screen before you enter.
If your temperature is 100 F or above, we will kindly ask you to come back at a safer time.
If you have an appointment with us, we are asking patients to fill out a Prescreening Questionnaire prior to your visit.
Our Pre-Rinse consists of 1% Hydrogen Peroxide and is used to help contain the spread of virus into the air.
All patients will be asked to Pre-Rinse upon entering into the operatory before your procedure.
Each of our employees are equipped with additional personal protective equipment to ensure further safety. This includes disposable water-resistant isolation gowns, disposable head caps, disposable shoe booties, safety glasses, full face shields, N95 masks with an additional Level 3 Surgical Mask on top of that.
Extraoral Suction units
We have implemented the ADS EOE Extraoral Dental Suction System in each operatory. It removes a high volume of droplets and aerosols produced by high-speed handpieces and ultrasonic scalers during your treatment and cleanings. This system reduces infection risk and keeps the air clean by collecting aerosols, droplets, dust and pathogens produced. The HEPA filter captures particles down to 0.3 microns with 99.995% efficiency.
Clear dry air is exhausted from the base cabinet. The UVC lights are positioned on the HEPA fileter and kill any remaining bacteria and viruses caputred by the HEPA filter H14 and are exhausted from the cabinet base.
Medical Grade Air Purifiers
In addition to the Extraoral Suction Systems, we have placed medical-grade Medify Air Purifiers in each operatory as well as the front Welcome Room to ensure clean air all throughout the office. Our units include H13 true HEPA filters which captures 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns including virus carriers so that you are safe and protected.
ReLeaf handsfree dental suction
A comfortable and soft dental suction device that reduces aerosols and assists with evacuation, retraction and maintaining a dry field.
Sterilizing all instruments effectively and properly is vital here in our office.
We use a high end autoclave/sterilization unit called the Midmark M11 UltraClave™ Automatic Sterilizer to ensure employee and patient safety. It is designed to be reliable, easy to use, and can optimize sterilization output.
Medical grade Aerosol disinfectant
We have implemented a safe disinfecting spray between every patient in the operatories and every room in our office to make sure the COVID-19 Coronavirus is eliminated in our air in 15 seconds.
Proper Hand washing
We have trained our team to follow proper Hand Washing Techniques according to the World Health Organization. These posters will be conveniently placed at all sinks to instruct patients how to do the same for maximized protection.
Proper Hand Sanitizing
The same has been done with training our team how to properly Hand Sanitize according to the World Health Organization. Hand sanitizers are placed all throughout our office for all of our patients and employees. Click HERE to view the poster
automatic soap dispenser
These are placed for your safety to limit contact with any physical surfaces.
The Cord-Eze is a product available to help assist our team in using HVE strong powered suctions during any procedures to help minimize the spread of aerosols safely.
We are helping patients comply with Social Distancing by limiting the number of people in the Welcome Room at any given time and getting you seated as quickly as possible.
How to Plan ahead for
your trip here
Stay home if you are feeling any symptoms
Arrive wearing a mask
Arrive on Time
Per our hygienist's request, please brush your teeth before arrival
Due to the risk of aerosols spreading, we are currently not allowing patients to brush in the sinks.
Come alone if possible
Unless you require assistance or are a minor, we ask that you come alone.
Bring earplugs or earphones
With the increased amount of equipment to create cleaner air, it can get fairly loud inside.
Bring Something Warm to Wear
It can also get fairly cold inside of the office due to high air circulation.
We encourage you to bring a warm sweater or a blanket to your visit with us.
