In an attempt to put your mind at ease regarding the current crisis, we wanted to reiterate to you how our office has always adhered to the highest standards of cleanliness and sterility in our normal practice. Every instrument we use is sterilized before each use, if an item cannot be sterilized it is disposed of after its use, every surface (i.e. dental chair, etc.) is wiped down with a disinfectant in between each patient and the water given in the dental chairs is specially filtered. Going forward, we will be increasing the cleaning of high-traffic surfaces and areas such as the waiting room and restroom. We are committed to your health and safety along with your comfort. When visiting the office, please feel free to ask any questions and we will be more than happy to explain to you or demonstrate procedures. Please remember, having a healthy mouth and healthy dental hygiene is essential to maintaining a healthy body.
