There are a few changes to our protocol but please be assured that you will
still receive the same amazing care.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at (952) 835-5082.
- Please remain in your car and call us to check in.
- You will receive a Covid-19 screening form on your phone. Fill it out and sign it.
- Once you get in the office, we will take your temperature and measure the oxygen saturation in your
blood. If there are no concerns, you will be escorted back to the treatment room.
- Hand sanitizer will be available for you to use.
- Masks must be worn inside the office, until you reach the operatory.
Due to the PPE shortage, we will be instituting a one-time temporary fee of $10. We hope to remove this fee as soon as the supply chain normalizes!
The biggest concern in the dental field is the aerosolization of saliva as we work. To reduce this risk, the dentist and dental hygienists are all using strong intraoral suctions. We have invested in a variety of devices to tailor our patients' needs and comfort.
medical grade air purifiers
Air cleanliness is crucial in the prevention of COVID transmission. In every operatory, we have invested in commercial medical grade air purifiers from Surgically Clean Air. These purifiers utilize 6 stage of filtration, including a HEPA filter and carbon filter, to remove particles down to 0.1 micron. Additionally, there is an internal UV-C light that will kill bacteria and viruses. The Surgically Clean Air units can move huge volumes of air quietly and are capable of cleaning every ounce of our operatories in 2.5 minutes.
There are air purifiers in every room of our office, including the bathroom!
We have always disinfected all surfaces of our operatories between patients. For extra prevention, we have started to fog the rooms with hypochlorous acid. This is electrolyzed salt water and smells like chlorine bleach. It is actually more effective than chlorine bleach, yet non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-mutagenic.
Prior to your cleanings or dental work, you will be asked to rinse for one minute with an anti-microbial rinse.
