Employing the Latest Technology to Keep You Safe
Ensuring the health of both our patients and our team members is paramount, which is why we have made significant changes to our protocols, and implemented an array of new technologies, in light of the pandemic. We want to you feel comfortable when you and your family visit our office, so you can obtain better oral health without anxiety or risk of contracting COVID-19. Whether you need a simple checkup and cleaning, or an advanced treatment, such as dental implant placement, we’re ready to offer care while safeguarding your overall health.
You notice a few changes from the moment you arrive. First, we require patients to call when they arrive in the parking lot. We want to make sure the waiting room is empty enough to secure proper social distancing before we welcome you inside. We have mobile check-in as well! We require masks, and will take your temperature when you enter the office. Don’t worry, we have plenty of hand sanitizer available too!
Prior to your exam and treatment, we will provide a special hydrogen peroxide pre-rinse to disinfect your mouth and destroy any present viruses. When the time has come to leave, we have contactless payment options too. Of course, our team will be also be wearing PPE, including N95 high-filtration masks, face shields, gowns, and gloves.
Advanced Filtration Technologies
We also have systems in place to help filter and clean the air around you.
Dryshield Isolation: An all-in-one system designed to capture any aerosols in the air as the dentist examines and treats you, minimizing the risk of infection.
Healthy Air Extraoral HEPA Filter: With this technology, we filter the air to capture and remove harmful airborne particles, which not only helps in preventing the contraction of COVID-19, but also ensures cleaner air for our patients with asthma and other breathing difficulties.
Puradigm UV Light HEPA Filter and Medify HEPA Air Filters: These options filter the air, using UV light and advanced filtration technology to destroy 99.9% of airborne germs and contaminants, including bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi, and more.
HOCL Disinfectant System
The HOCL disinfectant fogger provides a safe alternative to bleach and uses Hypochlorous Acid to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi in the air and on surfaces around the office. For this reason, Hypochlorous Acid has been employed in the food industry, hotels, sanitation industry, and schools for over 150 years to ensure the health and safety of guests, staff, and students. We use the HOCL fogger to thoroughly clean and disinfectant our entire office to help protect our patients and team members. We’re very proud to be able to implement this technology at our practice.
