What We're Doing to Safely Provide Care
We are taking extraordinary precautions to ensure we safely serve patients in our dental practices.
Extra cleaning and sanitation: Our practices have always maintained a safe and clean environment. We have added extended cleaning and disinfection measures to all areas, including high-touchpoint areas (surfaces, dental chairs, bathrooms, etc) inside of each practice – this effort is on top of our standard stringent protocols. In addition, many of our practices have invested in GPS® Air Cleaning Technology to deliver cleaner, safer indoor air. Studies have proven GPS technology to reduce infectivity of certain viruses by 90% or more (source: www.globalplasmasolutions.com).
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Our practices continue to have access to and use PPE (surgical masks, face shields, gloves, gowns etc) recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for your protection and our staff’s protection during care.
Caring for staff: Our staff members continue to follow guidelines to ensure their health and safety, which includes not reporting to work if they are ill, taking their temperature during work hours, and maintaining stringent infection control best practices including hand washing and use of hand sanitizers.
