Important Patient Safety Information Concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic
We understand concerns surrounding dental aerosols with patient and provider safety during the COVID pandemic. Along with current CDC and state guidelines, we are taking a step further in protecting both patients and team members. During the height of the pandemic, our office was designed and built with the safety of our patients and team in mind. We have taken multiple measures to mitigate infection risk to the best of our ability.
For example, our operatories are engineered with local exhaust ventilation to manage airflow and capture and remove aerosols generated during treatment. We also employ UV light in our HVAC system for killing and inhibiting the growth of viruses, bacteria, and mold.
Naturally, we always use personal protective equipment like masks and gloves along with a strict sterilization protocol to minimize hazardous risks from COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. We expect this to be the new normal of safety based on current research, and we will not go back to the way we practiced before. Personally, we feel safer in our dental facility than grocery shopping.
If you have any questions, we encourage you to call Haven Dentistry at (832) 378-7870. We look forward to seeing you and providing dental care to you and your family.
