Covid-19 Information

 

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our infection control processes are  made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

 

When you arrive for your appointment:

  • When you arrive for your appointment, we ask that you call our office (404-315-8499) to let us know that you have arrived. Please remain in your automobile or stay outside and we will call you when you can enter the office.


  • Only patients with scheduled appointments will be allowed to enter the office. If you have guests with you, they will not be allowed to enter the office. Minors may have one adult accompany them in the office.


  • Our office will communicate with you before you enter the office to ask some screening questions as well as have your temperature taken with a contactless forehead thermometer.


  • We have hand sanitizer to use immediately upon entering the office. You will also find some in other places in the office for you to use as needed.


  • Check in and check out tasks will be done in the waiting room where a plexiglass barrier shield has been installed between the waiting room and front office.


  • If you prefer a no contact checkout you may provide your credit card information in advance of your appointment. We will charge your card at the end of your appointment and email a receipt.

 

 For your safety during your appointment:


  • Our office will re-open with limited hours and will offer limited procedures and appointment times. More treatment may be referred to our trusted specialists.


  • We thoroughly disinfect all surfaces in the operatories between patients with hospital level surface disinfectants (CaviWipes).


  • We regularly perform a fogging procedure with an EPA registered surface disinfectant (Purtabs), which is highly effective against many communicable diseases including Coronavirus. The surface disinfectant is sprayed with a fogging machine and is immediately safe for our patients and staff after application.


  • We use disposable products where indicated, and sterilize all reusable equipment with Midmark autoclaves.


  • HEPA viral filters have been installed in our HVAC system, as well as individual HEPA filters in each treatment room.


  • Our office uses the Sterisil water treatment system. Sterisil is the only water line treatment system that is EPA registered to produce dental water with less than or equal to 10 CFU/ml HPC bacteria.


  • Clinical staff that are treating patients will be wearing N95 masks, face shields, and gowns.


  • Aerosol mitigating high volume suction devices (the ReLeaf System) will be used during all cleanings to reduce aerosol risks.


  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing and to allow for thorough infection control procedures between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment and your wait times may be longer.

 

 

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 404-315-8499.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to seeing you.
