COVID Protocol

Our Office’s Safety Standards

To help prevent the transmission of all respiratory infections, including COVID-19, we adhere to standardized infection control measures, such as performing hand hygiene and no-touch receptacles. We follow routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, using EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, as well as appropriate sterilization of all tools and equipment. We also use facemasks and gloves for each patient per guidelines set by the FDA and CDC.

While our office already adheres to these standard precautions, there are additional recommendations we are implementing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Making sure our masks, gloves, and eye protection are appropriate for the procedures performed.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting highly touched public areas frequently, including door handles, chairs, and bathrooms.

If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office to reschedule if you experience any of the following:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

When you visit our office, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment, rather than too early. This will minimize the amount of time you spend in our waiting room or reception area. Recently, the CDC released updated public indoor masking guidance based on local COVID levels. Our CDC COVID-19 community level is currently HIGH. MASKS ARE RECOMMENDED IN OUR OFFICE regardless of vaccination status. Our orthodontic team will continue to mask and follow strict infection control protocol for all exams and chairside procedures. We will also continue to monitor local COVID levels and keep you updated accordingly. Please let us know if you have any questions before, during or after your visit. We look forward to seeing you!  

How can you prevent contracting or spreading COVID-19?

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not use your hands.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Calling in advance will allow your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility.

Should you have any questions regarding our safety standards, please call our office.
