Notice of Privacy Practices

As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols and utilizing single-use disposable materials. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, only patients will be allowed in the office. In addition, we will require patients to wear face coverings and stay 6 feet apart while in the waiting room. Upon arrival, our staff will have patients complete a health screening questionnaire (click here to view). Patients that answer "yes" to any screening question will be asked to reschedule. We will also be taking a temperature reading to verify the absence of a fever. Any patient with a temperature of 100.4° F or higher will be asked to reschedule. Prior to dental treatment, patients will rinse with Colgate Peroxyl.

Our office utilizes HEPA H13 air purifiers that remove 99.97% of unhealthy particles in the air. We will also use an extraoral suction system for all dental restorative treatment. This system is designed specifically to address aerosols generated at the oral cavity during dental treatment. Please click here to learn more.
