Infection control has always been a top priority at our office. We have routinely followed standard measures to ensure the comfort and safety of our patients.
During the spread of the COVD-19 virus, we have taken additional infection control precautionary measures in order to ensure the utmost safety of our patients and staff members. We have implemented social distancing in our office. We have individual treatment rooms for patients and practice social distancing in the waiting room so that patients can safely remain 6 feet or more apart. Our rooms contain HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters that provide clean air circulation inside the office. We continue to clean and disinfect our instruments, surfaces, and the general environment routinely to maintain excellent disinfection and sterilization protocols.
