During the spring of 2020 when our office was treating emergency patients only, we used our spare time to focus on what it would take to welcome our patients back to a safe environment amid a global pandemic. We are thrilled that since May 4, 2020, we have been successfully providing all dental treatments again; to our knowledge, there has been no transmission of coronavirus between any of our staff or patients in all this time. Dental offices throughout the country have shown to be very low risk for spreading coronavirus.
Here are the measures we believe are allowing us to operate safely:
- You will find our doctors and clinical staff in masks, face shields and gloves. Everything you touch in the treatment room or anything that touches you is sanitized between patients, but that has always been the case.
- Our waiting room and hallways and every treatment operatory now have medical-grade air filters. You will notice the hum when you sit down in your treatment room. These air filters are designed to turn over the air in your treatment room completely every five minutes.
- We have installed Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionization throughout the whole office. This proven clean air technology filters and cleans indoor air, improving air quality by removing and destroying dangerous contaminants like COVID-19. You can read more about it here: https://www.iso-aire.com/. Even once the pandemic is contained, we plan to have the cleanest air around.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions that have not been addressed here. We look forward to seeing you (safely!) soon.
