Maintaining Safety in Our Dental Office: COVID-19

We have been back to caring for dental patients since May 4, 2020. We continue to take temperatures and screen patients prior to entry into the treatment rooms. Patients wear masks when in our building and in our dental office, we have many signs posted on exterior and interior doors to assist with reminding visitors of prevention and safety, we have several hand sanitization stations available, we disinfect public surfaces multiple times daily, we allow one household in the reception area at a time, we maintain social distancing between households, and more.

Dr. Mark and his dental assistant Estela have continued to wear face shields, surgical gowns, and surgical masks to maintain safety for patients. High volume suction used during treatment dramatically reduces aerosols, and our normal high level of sanitization and sterilization has been maintained within the treatment areas.

This level of environmental and clinical safety is not new to Dr. Mark. As he began his dental school training in 1982, there was a new awareness concerning the AIDS virus and in preventing its transmission. Certainly, dental offices needed to defend against this AIDS virus as it had entered the United States. As a result, Dr. Mark has been accustomed to this higher level of care and concern for disease transmission and infection.
