Your Safety Is Our Priority
We trust you are healthy and well during this time. As summer is upon us, we wanted to reach out and remind you the importance of scheduling your routine dental visit. We have always been equipped and trained for decades in the best infection control outside of a hospital operating room. This is why dentistry has never been a source of respiratory infection or other viral spread. Safety and comfort are critical more than ever. Here’s a brief synopsis of some key measures for you:
1) We have introduced a new state-of-the-art medical-grade air purification system, Surgically Clean Air, which includes six stages of technology including a UV-C light that kills 99% of bacteria, mold, viruses (including 0.1 microns at coronavirus level) and reduces airborne particulates such as dust, dander, pollen, and mold.
2) We have provided hand sanitizers and masks upon check-in.
3) Patients are screened prior to their appointment to keep those high-risk patients and/or those with flu-like symptoms safely at home.
5) We record the temperature of all team members and patients before coming into the office.
6) At the beginning of every appointment, you will be asked to pre-rinse with a Peroxyl Mouth Rinse that has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
7) We routinely use CaviCide™ throughout our office after each patient, as we always have prior to this pandemic. It is a powerful sanitizing agent available for eliminating germs, bacteria, and viruses.
This high level of service is just one of the many ways that we are supporting our community and you. As you can see our office is “cleaner” than our homes with our established measures.
To that end, again we want to stress the importance of not delaying or putting off your dental care as your immune system needs to be at it’s strongest during this time. Remember untreated dental disease gets exponentially worse over time. Insidious germs in the mouth take hold and build toward more significant problems such as uncontrolled diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. The oral-medical connection has been proven for years.
If it’s been a while since we’ve seen you please contact us at 832-830-8226 and let’s get you back in for your check-up.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
