Dental appointments and the COVID – 19 pandemic
We are please let you know that we have opened our office to provide emergency and elective services.
As dental offices slowly start to reopen their practices around the US, we will continue to follow and stay current with the ADA (American Dental Association), CDA (California Dental Association) and CDC guidelines.
During this time, our office will be open for phone calls, scheduling appointment, treatment and hygiene visits.
As always all surfaces including dental chairs, table tops and counters, handles, and areas where aerosols can contaminate will be disinfected. Barriers will continue to be used and proper personal protective equipment (PPE) will be used for staff and patient safety.
Filtration systems will be installed to reduce the amount of aerosol during your care in the office.
New protocols may be implemented during your visit to the dental office at this time for the safety of our patients and staff. This will included taking of temperature, mouth rinsing before treatment is rendered, handwashing upon entry into the operatories, and checking-in from outside of the office.
Additional measure have been put in place to reduce frequency of direct contact such as removing coffee, magazines, from the waiting room, providing electronic pay options and regular disinfection protocols.
Please maintain general hygiene as advised by the CDC. Just as important as handwashing, daily brushing, flossing, and mouth rinse are important and may play a role in helping reduce exposure.
