COVID-19 Safety Protocols
At Stonewall Dental Associates, we are dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. We have taken certain infection control measures to make your visit to our office as safe as possible.
We strictly follow the guidelines provided by the ADA, CDC, and OSHA as part of the infection control procedures. We stay up-to-date on any new guidance provided by these agencies.
Have a look at the changes we implemented in our office to help protect our patients and staff:
Pre-Screening Of Every Patient
Before making an appointment, we will pre-screen patients and also ask them to complete an updated health screening form to ensure everyone's safety.
When you arrive
Please give us a call when you arrive and remain in your vehicle. We keep social distancing and stay on top of ADA requirements. You will have to wait till your appointment time. We will call/text you as soon as we ensure it's safe for you to come in. We permit only the patient to enter and let the guardian in if needed.
Temperature check and Mask
We will assess your temperature, and you have a temperature at or above 100.4° F, we will reschedule your appointment. Make sure to wear a cloth mask whenever you arrive at the dental office.
Disinfection and Sterilization of Instruments
This is something we do ever since we started our practice. In each operatory, after every patient, we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment, and surfaces to make everything super clean.
Air Purifiers and Aerosol Reduction
We have equipped our office with air purifiers that can kill bacteria, mold, and viruses and keep the air clean. We have also utilized special equipment to limit aerosols.
PPE and Staff
We have reinforced our staff and doctor PPE barriers. We will also keep in check the temperature of our staff members twice a day and monitor for any symptoms.
Before making you sit on the dental chair, you will have to sanitize your hands and use an oral pre-rinse for about 30 seconds.
