HEPA Air Purifier
At Pomona Smiles Family Dental, we have invested in True HEPA Air Purifier with UV Light, which mainly does the activity of disinfecting and improving the quality of air. Thus, it can help reduce the spread of airborne pollutants and focus on providing protective hygiene.
We always prioritize the safety of our patients and staff to make safe and healthy visits.
At our practice, we are following the recommendations and guidelines of the CDC and OSHA, offering our patients a safe environment for all sorts of dental care. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis across the country, we are taking certain essential steps to enhance our daily protocols to provide the highest quality safety for our patients and staff.
In addition to the "universal precautions," we are happy to announce that we have added more safety to the dental care we provide by keeping in consideration the protection of our patients and staff as well. We have adjusted the appointment scheduling so that fewer patients and staff may gather in one area, and reinforced our staff and dentist PPE barriers.
To make your visit a safe and secure one, we have taken measures of personal protection like n95 masks, eye protection, and face shields.
Our practice considers a protective and hygienic environment as part of a safe future. Our dentists and staff are eagerly waiting to meet all of your dental needs. We expect you to stay healthy and also happy.
Plexiglass at the front desk
We have installed Plexiglass sneeze guards at the front desk. This is a physical barrier and a safer alternative that can help stop germs spread through coughs and sneezes. These protective barriers offer protection from the direct spread of airborne droplets containing viruses and bacteria.
We care about your safety and are working hard to prevent the spread of infection. We are strictly following the guidelines and recommendations provided by the ADA and CDC. Before you enter the examining room, we make sure to disinfect and clean all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles, and countertops. Some of the equipment will be covered with protective covers and replaced after each patient.
Any non-disposable items like the dental tools are cleaned and sterilized between patients. We never reuse disposable dental tools and needles. After each patient, we also make sure to throw away our personal protective equipment. Before seeing the next patient, everyone on the treatment team ensures to wash their hands, and put on a new set of PPE.
Your well-being is important to us, and so intense infection control procedures are in place at our dental office.
New Protocols in Place for Your Visit
Please have a look at our new protocols in place for your visit:
- We have minimized patients in the waiting area to reduce overlap and contact.
- We sanitize counters, doorknobs, and seating area after each patient.
- Each operatory is a separate room, and we turn on the air purifiers after each patient visit for 15 minutes so as to sanitize the room and clean the air completely.
- Each patient is provided with 1.5% Hydrogen Peroxide rinse before every procedure to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
