We recognize times have changed and priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff and patients.

With this in mind, we are happy to share the 23 additional steps we are taking to make every visit to our dental office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standards of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental offices.

Our goal is to add peace-of-mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is part of an on-going commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.

We are in this together, and we will never underestimate the power of a smile!

Advanced Staff Training


Each member of our team has completed additional awareness and prevention programs to enhance their knowledge and preparedness.
pic

Safety Champion


Each day, one person will be designated to guide our Commitment to Safety. This includes greeting patients, answering questions, ensuring social distancing, and overall monitoring.
pic

Daily Health Checks of Our Team


No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing and able to provide safe dental care – every day.
pic

No Handshakes or Hugs


We truly do love our patients. However, we will save our hearty welcomes and goodbyes for a later date when things are “back to normal”.

Change Work Clothes at Work


In the past, you might have seen us out in our stylish scrubs. Not anymore. We change out of our scrubs when we leave the dental office.
pic

Anti-Microbial Rinse


In addition to brushing and flossing before your visit, we will provide an Oracare solution to rinse in your mouth for 60 seconds and reduce bacteria.
pic

Virtual Waiting Room


Now, you can check-in from your car. As a result, you are able to minimize contact with others, bypass the reception area, and go directly to your treatment room.
pic

No Patient Gloves Allowed


Minimizing cross-contamination is an important part of our plan. We will ask you to dispose of any outside gloves before you enter.

pic

Pre-Screening of Every Patient


A quick health questionnaire and consent form along with a no-touch temperature check will be completed when you arrive at our dental office.
pic

Expanded Patient Appointments


In an effort to save you time and multiple exposures, we are offering extended appointments. This allows us to do more dentistry in a single visit.
pic

Family Friendly Scheduling


We are now able to see up to 6 established family members during the same visit. It is almost like your own, private dental experience.
pic

At-Risk Patient Hours


Relax. We have hours dedicated exclusively to our mature and medically-concerned patients. Let us add peace-of-mind to your next visit.
pic

Hospital-Grade Hand Sanitizing Station


Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our dental office.
pic

Social Distancing in Place


Fewer chairs in our reception area, helpful signs and one-way traffic in our treatment area make 6’ spacing a practical reality.
pic

Cleaning After Every Appointment


We are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment and surfaces in each operatory after every patient.
pic

Deep Cleaning Every Evening


Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down.
pic

CDC-Approved Instrument Sterilization


This is standard procedure at all times, and nothing has changed. Anything that goes near your mouth is heat and pressure cleaned between every use.
pic

Front Desk Masks


Even our friendly administrative team will be wearing ASTM Level 3 masks. Don’t worry. They are smiling behind those masks!
pic

Advanced Chairside Suction


Whenever possible, we will activate high speed evacuation to minimize aerosol contamination and improve air quality.
pic

HEPA Air Filtration


Our air has never been cleaner. We have added HEPA-grade filters to our HVAC system along with stand-alone air cleaners in each operatory.
pic

No Magazines or Activities


This may make our reception area a little less exciting, but it makes it much safer as well.
pic

Installed Clear Barriers


Hard plastic guards have been placed strategically throughout the dental office – and are cleaned regularly – to help block the movement of airborne particles.
