COVID-19 policies and updates

Infection control procedures for Covid-19

  • Compartmentalization, all rooms have been separated by plastic barriers in an effort to control the spread of droplets out of the operatories.
  • Double HEPA filtration units have been placed in every room, including the reception.
  • HEPA filters have been installed in the AC unit.
  • A timer will be used in every room to make sure that it has been cleared for at least 10 minutes to allow the HEPA air filters to clean up the air.
  • All barriers are removed and all surfaces are disinfected before allowing a new patient in the room in accordance with infection control protocols.
  • We use extra oral evaluators (vacuums) to collect vapors from the handpieces to reduce airborne particles.
  • All instruments are sterilized in the autoclave between patients, always.
  • Patients will be provided masks, hand sanitizer and disposable gowns.
  • Patients will be screened for symptoms prior to the visit and at the time of the visit. Temperature will be checked upon arrival.
  • Employees have been instructed to report any suspicious symptoms and will not be allowed to work until cleared by a physician.
  • Portable fogging units will be used to spray the room with Vital oxide, to reduce airborne viral particles.
  • We are exchanging the air inside the operatories 10 times with a powerful HEPA scavenging unit to remove any suspended particles of virus. Please share with us any questions or concerns you might have. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during these difficult times.
