ADDITIONAL AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS
Rest assured, our staff has been thoroughly prepared and trained for added safety. Each member of our team has completed additional awareness and prevention programs designed to further their preparedness and understanding.
HEALTH CHECKS EVERY DAY FOR EVERYONE
At our office, we’ll be conducting no-contact temperature checks for each team member every day. They are also asked a series of health-related questions to ensure they’re able to treat patients safely.
PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING
It truly breaks our hearts to say this but, (for the time being), we ask that there are no hugs or handshakes at the office. We love all of our patients, and someday we’ll be able to share our welcomes and goodbyes without social distancing measures.
SCRUBS STAY AT THE OFFICE
As another added safety precaution, our team members now change into and out of their clean scrubs at the office instead of at home.
CHECK-IN FROM YOUR CAR
We no longer have patients prepare for their appointment in the waiting room. Instead, you can call us from your car and let us know you’re ready to go. You’ll minimize your contact with other people and be taken directly to your treatment room.
SANITIZE YOUR HANDS PLEASE
We will have hand sanitizer located throughout the office. When you arrive for an appointment, please sanitize your hands to help minimize the risks of cross-contamination.
MORE TIME BETWEEN APPOINTMENTS
We’ve cut back on the number of patients we see daily. This allows for more time between appointments for our team to clean, sanitize, and prepare treatment areas for our next patient.
PATIENT TEMPERATURE CHECK AND SCREENING
When you come in for an appointment, we’ll do a quick no-touch check of your temperature and ask you some health-related questions.
FOLLOW THE SIGNS
You’ll notice our office setup might look a little different. We now have fewer chairs in the reception area to allow for proper social distancing. Much like at the local stores, you’ll see helpful signs and one-way areas to help effectively keep six feet away from one another.
SANITIZE AND CLEAN WHEN YOU LEAVE
Once you leave the office following treatment, our team gets to work cleaning, disinfection, and sanitizing everything in the office. This includes all tools, equipment, and surface areas.
CONSISTENT STERILIZATION OF TOOLS
In line with the CDC recommendations, we’re continuing our standard procedure of sterilizing all tools or anything near your mouth in our autoclave using high heat and pressure.
DOUBLE-MASKING AND FACE SHIELDS AT ALL TIMES
Everyone on our clinical team will have to wear not one, but two masks for added safety and protection. You see them wearing both N95 and ASTM Level 3 masks. They’ll also be wearing FDA-approved PET face shields. Our front desk team will also be covering their smiles with ASTM Level 3 masks.
FILTERING THE AIR
Thanks to our new HEPA-grade filtration through the office, you can breathe easy knowing the air is free from harmful airborne particles.
NO WAITING ROOM ACTIVITIES
For health reasons, we’ve removed all magazines and other activities from our waiting area.
