  • All staff have received both doses of their COVID19 vaccine within the last 3 months.

  • Temperature is taken of each staff member at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day to ensure they do not have a fever.

  • Staff with any COVID19 symptoms are to remain at home and cannot return to the office until they received a negative COVID19 test.

Office:

COVID19 Safety Procedures

  • Patients are requested to wait in their car until called in to reduce the number of interactions and promote social distancing.

  • All patients are thoroughly screened prior to entering our building. Their temperature is then taken and recorded.

  • All patients are required to wear their own masks and will be provided with a surgical mask and clean, disposable gloves prior to entering the treatment rooms. Gloves are then to be disposed of prior to leaving our building, after the patient has received their treatment.

  • If any paperwork needs to be completed, the patient will be given an unused, clean pen that they can either keep or dispose of.

  • Our office is fully equipped with hand sanitizer placed throughout our building and in each treatment room as well as automatic soap dispensers in the bathroom.

  • Each dental provider sees only one patient at a time. Only one patient per room at a time.

Treatment Rooms:

COVID19 Safety Procedures

  • All treatment rooms are outfitted with portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air filtration units and ventilation systems.

  • Additional time is scheduled between patients to allow for more extensive sanitation and cleaning procedures. Specialty, hospital-grade cleaning products are used to fully disinfect the rooms according to the guidelines outlined by Infection Control.

  • Additional disposable plastic coverings are used, which are changed after each patient.

  • We are avoiding aerosol generating procedures, unless absolutely needed. When aerosol generating procedures are necessary, we use four-handed dentistry (dentist plus assistant), high evacuation suction, and dental dams to minimize droplet spatter and aerosols.
