COVID-19 Precautions. We follow all standardized infection control practices, such as performing hand hygiene, providing tissues and no-touch receptacles to throw away used tissues, and providing facemasks to patients who are coughing, in order to help prevent the transmission of all respiratory infections, including COVID-19. We adhere to standard cleaning and disinfection procedures, pre-washing surfaces with cleansers and water before using an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, and properly sterilizing all instruments and equipment. In accordance with the CDC and FDA's standards, we also provide fresh facemasks and gloves for every patient.
Many patients are startled to learn that dentists have been practicing many of the precautions being used to safeguard patients and employees from the transmission of infectious diseases like the new coronavirus (COVID-19) for many years.
If you encounter any of the following and have an appointment booked within the next two weeks, please contact our office:
The state of your health, the dental care you need, and the safety of visiting our office for you, our other patients, and our staff will all be discussed.
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping appointments and coming to our office on time. Your time in our waiting room or reception area will be cut short as a result of this, or even completely eliminated. We will ask you to put on a facemask if you are experiencing respiratory problems.
The good news is that by reducing hospital admissions for dental pain treatment, the dentistry community as a whole can continue to support regional hospitals and the nation as a whole. If you have any further questions or worries about your safety while visiting the dentist, don't be afraid to give us a call.
Please give us a call at Summerlin Dental Solutions if you have any questions about our office's commitment to your health and safety. Visit the World Health Organization website to learn more about what you can do to stop the spread of COVID-19.
