Dear Valued Patient,
As we continue to navigate through this COVID-19 pandemic and its variants, our dental office is committed to do our part to keep you and your loved ones safe. To help slow the spread, we only see patients with a scheduled appointment unless the patient is a minor. We also encourage you to wear a facial covering when entering our office to protect yourself and others.
At our office, we follow the extensive infection control recommendations outlined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, we go above and beyond many of these requirements because we are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our patients, as well as that of our team.
These infection control and safety measures include:
- Eye protection for patients and team members
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
In addition, our team of dental professionals sterilizes all reusable equipment after each use, including handpieces. We use an autoclave, which is a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. When possible, we use disposable materials and tools to eliminate the risk of cross contamination through reuse.
Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and you can rest assured that we take all of the necessary steps to protect you and your family while you are with us. We welcome you to contact our office today to schedule your next visit with our dentist and learn more about what you can do to keep patients safe. We look forward to caring for you!
