Office Update

As shelter in place regulations begin to lift across the country and we re-enter a post-COVID-19 world, our patients’ and team members’ health and safety continue to be top of mind.

Regular hand washing:

  • Before and after treating a patient
  • Before putting on gloves and immediately after removing them
  • After touching any potentially contaminated surfaces or equipment
  • Using soap and water for visibly soiled hands instead of alcohol-based hand sanitizer

Use of personal protective equipment:

  • Wearing gloves, masks and eyewear while treating patients
  • Using new gloves for treatment of every patient
  • Removing personal protective equipment before leaving the work area

Using proper respiratory and cough etiquette:

  • Covering mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing
  • Coughing or sneezing into the elbow
  • Using and disposing of tissues
  • Sanitizing hands after exposure to respiratory secretions

Use of sterile instruments and devices:

  • Disinfecting and sterilizing reusable dental equipment before use on another patient
  • Keeping manufacturer’s reprocessing instructions readily available for trained team members
  • Wearing appropriate PPE when handling and reprocessing equipment
  • Using monitors to ensure effectiveness of sterilization
  • Maintaining sterilization records in accordance with state and local regulations

Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces throughout the operatories and office:

  • Establishing policies and procedures for routine cleaning and disinfection of surfaces
  • Using barriers for hard-to-clean surfaces
  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that are not barrier-protected
  • Using EPA-registered disinfectants or detergents that are suitable for health care settings

In addition to adhering to these standards, we will also take measures to ensure social distancing regulations can be respected in our practice so that all patients feel comfortable receiving care.

If you have any questions about our sanitation processes, please feel free to contact our office for more information.

We’re so happy to be open and can’t wait to see you. Happy brushing and flossing!
