While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We have always followed recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We are currently updating all of our systems to follow the newly released post COVID-19 pandemic changes to these guidelines.
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We are making these changes to help protect our patients and staff:
We have installed a state of the art air purification system from Global Plasma Solutions. It is a modular ionization air purification system. This virtually eliminates static SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) using proprietary Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization technology (NPBI). In a test on SARS-CoV2, it has achieved a 99.4% reduction rate of the surface strain within 30 minutes. The NPBI technology delivers clean indoor air that is safe and healthy- producing neither ozone nor other harmful products. It purifies the air by eliminating airborne particulates, odors and pathogens. We have also installed three air purification units in the treatment area that are manufactured by Surgically Clean Air. These units provide six stage air filtration and purification processing that includes the use of ultraviolet light.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 847-428-4646. Please monitor our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) for more information and updates.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
