Important COVID-19 Information
In preparation for our much-anticipated reopening and the return of our precious patients and team members, we want to inform you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice.
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.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA) the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
The following enhancements to our infection control guidelines have been implemented along with the recommendations from the agencies listed above:
- Hospital grade antiviral and antibacterial Air purification and filtration system
- Extra Oral individual high- power suction for each patient (ADS) to remove high volume of droplets and aerosols produced during treatment.
- Certified Advanced team training by inUnison Consulting for Covid19 Readiness
- Daily health checks of our team and patients
- N95 level 3 masks, Face shields, disposable and protective lab coats and scrub caps
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- Your temperature and oxygen level (oximeter) will be taken before you enter the office.
- We have hospital grade hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- CDC-Approved Instrument Sterilization
- Our office is totally disinfected before and after each patient.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you.
- Special scheduling for “At-Risk” patients
We will be reopening our office on Monday, July 6th for elective procedures. Until then, Dr. Cannon and Dr. Agha will continue to treat dental emergencies and any pertinent dental procedures.
Please call our emergency line at 1-800-937-0149 for any questions you may have. Dr. Cannon will be pleased to speak with you!
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty. Be well and safe.
Dr. Zelia Cannon, Dr. Alena Ragheb Agha, and Team
