Our Office’s COVID-19 Safety Precautions


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.

This comprises:

  1. Following the right hand washing techniques before and after each patient visit.
  2. Using the correct sterilizing procedures for non-disposable tools and preventing the reuse of disposable products. cleaning of all surfaces, including covering some equipment with barriers and protective covers.
  3. Proper application of safety gear, such as barrier gowns, masks, gloves, and eyeglasses; never use the same mask or pair of gloves on two distinct patients.
  4. Here are some other actions our office is currently taking:
  5. We ask that any escorts, family members, or friends wait in their car or return to pick up patients as we only allow one patient in the clinic at a time.
  6. All patients must wash their hands properly or use hand sanitizer before entering the office.
  7. Screening questions regarding potential virus exposure in addition to assessing the patient's complete medical history
  8. The administration of antiseptic mouthwash before any oral examination.

If you encounter any of the following and have an appointment booked within the next two weeks, please contact our office:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Breathlessness
  • Travel within the previous 14 days to impacted regions

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.

How Can You Avoid Getting COVID-19 or Spreading It?

  • Consistently give your hands a 20-second wash with soap and water. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you don't have access to soap and water.
  • Keep a minimum of six feet between you and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Refrain from touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.
  • When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose. Use only your hands.
  • If you feel poorly, stay at home. Call beforehand and get medical assistance if you have a fever, cough, or breathing issues. Your healthcare practitioner will be able to promptly direct you to the appropriate medical facility if you call ahead.

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.
