For the health and safety of everyone who enters the office, our team will be fully equipped with face shields, gowns, protective gloves, masks, and more PPE. During our time away from normal routine hours, our staff has received advanced training on the correct way to implement these pieces, as a means to insure your safety. We have begun to integrate new technology to remain ahead of the curve, such as contactless temperature reading, and pulse oximeter, to measure oxygen saturation in the blood. These extra measures ensure a safe visit for both our patients and staff members.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations. As we are preparing to reopen, you may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment.We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
