Patient Safety is our TOP Priority
INFECTION CONTROL HAS ALWAYS BEEN A TOP PRIORITY AND SOMETHING WE HAVE always TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY. THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE. EVERY SURFACE IN EVERY OFFICE IS CAREFULLY TENDED TO, THROUGHOUT EACH DAY.
We have invested in new equipment and technology to meet and exceed CDC, WHO, OSHA, and ADA recommendations, as well as state DOH mandates. We have installed air filtration and purification systems to aggressively address airborne particle removal and cyclical air turnover to ensure the highest air quality throughout our facilities.
We have Chairside Extraoral Aerosol Suction Units, significantly reducing concern for contaminated aerosolized pathogens and their associated burden on the aforementioned air filtration units.
We have installed front desk acrylic barriers as an auxiliary safety measure to protect patients and team members, pre- and post-procedure. With these partitions in place and ongoing infection control, we are offering the safest environment possible, in our offices, for our patients and team members alike.
OUR TEAM MEMBERS:
A significant part of creating a safe setting for our patients to receive treatment is making sure our team members feel safe and comfortable. To that point, we have implemented a strict PPE protocol to guarantee that our team members are protected at all times.
We require each team member to utilize a N95 or KN95 mask, surgical mask, face shield, hair protection, and a disposable gown – and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. We carefully monitor the health of our employees daily. Strict protocols are in place into ensure our team is healthy for the safety of themselves, our team as a whole, their families, and our patients.
We are exceedingly committed to our promise of the optimal patient experience, each and every time.
To further optimize the patient experience with us, we will continue vigilant pre-screening for patients, fewer, more spaced appointments, clear reception areas, and social distancing regulations are firmly in place in every aspect of our offices, as well.
