COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

Proud Smile Dentistry is committed to providing a healthy environment for you and your family. Your safety dictates the policies and procedures practiced by our office, and it is important that you feel confident when coming to us, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We are closely monitoring the current state of affairs, the current CDC guidelines, and following recommendations by local health departments and the American Dental Association. Proud Smile Dentistry continues to operate using Universal Precautions, as is the standard set by OSHA.

 

We have invested heavily in the technologies required to ensure your safety, and we have implemented these additional protocols:

  • Prescreening all patients coming into office
  • Patients required to wash hands immediately upon arrival, hand sanitizer provided, and hydrogen peroxide rinse administered
  • Staff and patient temperature regularly taken using contactless thermometers
  • Limiting appointments to follow social distancing standards
  • The waiting area has been changed to promote safety guidelines
  • Sneeze guards in place to offer protection for face-to-face interactions
  • Hospital-grade air purifications systems have been installed
  • All necessary PPE such as plastic face shields, N95 / KN95 masks, gloves, and gowns are being used by staff.
  • All our patients are asked/required to wear masks while in the office except when in the operatory having a procedure done
  • After every patient, rooms are disinfected using EPA approved disinfectants effective against COVID-19 and all disposable covers are thrown away
  • Your family at Proud Smile Dentistry is here to support you through the current circumstances and beyond. We are here to ensure that you always have the best dental health for you and your loved ones!
