Yes, it is very safe to visit Advanced dental care, and keeping everyone safe is our top concern. Our office has always practiced Universal Precautions, which means using disposable items, bagging the dental chairs and wrapping other items with plastic barriers, wiping down the room with bacteriocidal wipes, and utilizing ultrasonic cleaning and sterilizing all instruments.
With the advent of Covid-19, our office has implemented additional steps to provide the safest environment possible.
Since we are a small office, you will not be in a crowded office. It will typically be just yourself or possibly one other patient be treated at that time. All staff will be wearing masks.
We have also employed a "virtual waiting room", which means no one is waiting in the waiting room. We ask that when you arrive at the office, you call or text to let us know you've arrived. We will conduct all business over the phone, from collecting any payment to scheduling your next appointment. And since we have now gone paperless, you can fill out all office forms online.
Once the treatment room has been disinfected, you will be called and met at the front door. There will be a brief questionnaire, a temperature check, and you will be given hand sterilizing cream. Then you will be escorted directly to the treatment room. Each treatment room has a medical-grade air filtration unit which will filter down to 0.1 microns. After the appointment is complete you will be free to leave, no stopping at the front desk.
