Covid Safety Protocol
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and we follow the guidelines set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Santa Clara County Public Health Department.
Some of the safety protocols we implement are as follows:
We will assess patients and workers for Covid symptoms and potential exposure.
All staff and patients will be screened daily for flu symptoms including checking body temperature and will routinely undergo Covid testing.
Although the county has lifted the mask mandate, masks are still required in health care facilities regardless of vaccination status. We will ask you to wear your face mask when you are in the common areas such as lobby, restroom and hallway to minimize exposure. Before treatment, we will ask you to pre-rinse your mouth with anti-microbial mouthwash.
All clinical staff will be wearing proper protective equipment such as face shield, face mask, protective gowns and gloves while working on patients.
Our facility is equipped with air purifiers with UV light, hypochlorous acid fogger, and high pressure oral vacuum units to minimize aerosols and clean the air.
All instruments are sterilized, and all frequently touched surfaces are disinfected with hospital grade disinfectant.
We will do our best to work efficiently and safely, but there will be some waiting time to allow proper screening and rigid infection control.
Thank you for your cooperation and may you stay healthy and safe.
