Special Office Protocols for COVID-19 and Emergency Dental Care
To our valued Patients,
There is no higher priority than the Safety of our Patients and Employees. We are in close communication with medical professionals, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), government agencies, and internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low.
As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures in the interest of our Patients' and Employees' health and safety. We continue to follow all the guidelines and precautions.
Dental office Cleaning: We use disposables as much as possible. All instruments that can be sterilized are after each and every patient. We use an autoclave that heats our instruments to a minimum of 250° F for at least 30 minutes by using saturated steam under at least 15 psi of pressure. Typically, we use an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant in the restroom and dental operatories.
Also, the office is equipped with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, which filters out recirculated air to remove airborne particles. HEPA filters are also used in hospitals to provide patients with clean air.
Again, remember the best way to protect yourself is to wash your hand with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Thank you for your cooperation.
