Technologies and Protocols

 

 

 

New Technologies
    

  • Air scrubbing systems – use UV, Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide to kill bacteria and viruses in office air and on surfaces.

  • HEPA air filters built in – filter 99.97% of viruses and bacteria to 0.3 nanometers.

  • HEPA air purifiers floor - filters placed throughout the office. 

  • Specialized helmets - worn by dentists, hygienists and assistants while treating patients, in addition to disposable gowns and gloves.

  • Customized suction units, not available on-line,  which have tubes that come near the patient, to evacuate anything that escapes the patients mouth.  Much more powerful than anything commercially available.  This also serves to provide negative pressure in the operatory.

  • Ozonated water – safe for human use while killing the virus, used in Europe in place of Chlorine.  This will be used to disinfect every inch of the operatory between patients; even more effective than standard dental wipes.  This will also be used in other applications in the office as well.

  • Barriers for separation between patients and staff.

  • Door buzzer – to limit the number of people inside the office.

  • 24 hour remote air monitoring to make sure our systems are always working at peak efficiancy.

  • many more technologies.

 

 

New Protocols

  • Only one patient allowed in the office at a time (including a caretaker/parent).

  • Monitoring of patient flow so that patients are never near each other in the office.

  • All patients will wait in cars until designated appointment times.

  • No toys or books allowed in waiting room.  No beverages supplied to patients due to risk.

  • A non-touch thermometer will be used to screen all patients.

  • Patients will complete a medical history update, including any recent fevers/COVID-19.

  • All paperwork and payments will be accomplished on-line, so there is no interaction.

  • All patients (except young children) will be asked to wear a mask and disinfect their hands (both provided if needed).

  • All patients will be asked to rinse their mouths with an antiviral mouthwash, as recommended by the ADA and CDC.

  • All staff will wear either a mask or a helmet at all times.
