COVID-19 Safety Measures
Your safety is our utmost priority!
For your safety and ours we use full personal protective equipment including masks specific for each appointment type including KN-95 and N-95 masks, face shields, goggles, lab coats and gowns.
We've implemented a number of changes to the office's layout with distancing measures in mind, as well as adding the IQ Air Health Pro Plus HEPA air filtration systems throughout the office.
For procedures that involve air and water spray, we have added the Healthy Air Source Capture HEPA machine, fondly known as the "elephant."
Surfaces are sprayed first with soapy water and then with the FDA approved sanitizing wipes. In addition, a UV light sterilizer is also used for smaller items.
When you arrive for your next appointment, we’ll have a new routine for you:
We will communicate with you before your appointment to do a short screening for COVID-19.
Please call us from your car to let us know that you have arrived and wear your mask. There will be a temperature check with our "no touch" infrared thermometer.
You will be escorted to the brushing station to brush your teeth and use a hydrogen peroxide rinse, and then taken to your seat.
We are taking guidance from the state of California, California Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists. It is a dynamic process, so heads up, things may change in the future.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
