Safety Precautions Taken by Our Office
Our office does an outstanding job of adhering to the latest, most up-to-date infection control measures. We are constantly monitoring changes to infection control guidelines provided by OSHA, CDC, ADA, IDPH, ISDS, etc.
While our office has held a high standard of infection control over the years, we will make some common sense changes in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
- Screening patients in advance of appointments and also the day of service.
- Screening office staff members each day
- Cleaning and utilizing infection control measures in public areas frequently, such as door handles, bathrooms, and chairs.
- Making sure our PPE (gloves, masks, eye protection, etc) are appropriate for the services provided.
- We are adhering to the American Dental Association “Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit” at this time.
