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.
  • HEPA filtration units have been placed in every room, including the reception.
  • HEPA filters have been installed in the AC unit.
  • Lab coats will be exchanged after treating each patient and will be properly sterilized before reusing on another patient.
  • 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 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 have purchased high-volume extra oral evacuators. However due to disruptions in the supply chain they are in transit.
  • All instruments are sterilized in the autoclave between patients, always.
  • Patients will be provided masks and hand sanitizer.
  • 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.
  • We have purchased a portable fogging unit to disinfect the air in the operatories with vital oxide. This unit is also in transit at the moment.
  • 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.
