Office Safety

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to providing you with a clean, healthy and extremely safe dental environment.
  • Our infection control processes continue to be a top priority for our practice, and we have implemented the highest possible levels for a dental environment.
  • Our office continues to follow infection control recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
  • We carefully follow the activities of these agencies so that we remain up-to-date on any new guidance that may be issued.
More information on the specific protocols we have instituted for your safety can be found below:
  • Nordic Pure office air conditioning filters - MERV 10 filtration level
  • Electrolyzed water system
  • Self-contained dental operatory water delivery systems supplying sterile water or oral disinfectant to dental and ultrasonic instruments
  • HEPA Air Purifiers (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filtration) with incorporated UV-C lights at 254 Nm wavelength strategically located throughout the office
  • Surgically Clean Air Jade Air Purification System utilizing 6 stages of filtration including a proprietary HEPA-Rx ultrafine filter which is centrally located in the office. The multi-stage filtration system captures biological air pollutants (viruses), filtering 99.998% of particles down to 0.1 microns
  • High level office sanitizing procedures using an extremely safe - yet powerful - hypochlorous disinfectant
  • Ryobi-1 Ultra-Low-Volume Cold Fogging Machine - upon entering and leaving all of the Operatory air is completely disinfected with a powerful and totally safe natural disinfectant.
  • Use of HVE (High Volume Evacuation) during all periodontal procedures - as in the past - reducing the Areosolization effect
  • State of the art Statim 5000 G4 Autoclave
  • Electric dental drills which significantly reduce undesirable aerosols as compared to air powered dental drills.
  • KN-95 surgical masks along with full face shields and surgical gowns for both patient and staff protection
  • Hand sanitizer strategically located throughout the office and required upon entering the office
  • Acrylic sneeze guards at the front desk
  • Social distancing of staff and patients where feasible
  • Minimal patients in the waiting room - spouses, family members, friends or caregivers may elect to wait in their car
  • Patients and staff to wear masks at all times when feasible
  • Rapid in office antibody and/or antigen COVID-19 testing (possibly in the near future)
