Protecting Patients from Pathogens
With COVID cases on the rise in many parts of the country
With COVID cases on the rise in many parts of the country, it’s understandable for patients to be worried when they have to go to the dentists. There has been contradictory information everywhere and it’s made it difficult to know what’s right or wrong when it comes to pathogens and your likelihood of encountering them in your daily life. However, we’re medical professionals and can assure you that we take pathogens very seriously. That’s why we’ve instituted a wide range of pathogen defenses throughout our clinic and why we’re so stringent about safety protocols for or patients and staff.
To combat the risk our patients face, and to set their minds at ease while they’re visiting, we’ve installed surgical air purifiers and created a rigid sanitization protocol that’s implemented every time we finish seeing a patient. Our teams are dedicated to ensuring a clean, comfortable space for the next patient, so they wash hands in between every interaction throughout the day. Masks are also worn to keep down the risk of aerosol exposure. Here’s a complete list of the steps we’ve taken:
- Surgically Clean Air Purifiers
- Constant Intraoral Suction
- Extra Suction to Eliminate Aerosols
- Rigid Sanitization Protocols
- Masks, Handwashing & Gloves
