Now open for all procedures!

Status as of June 4, 5:00 p.m. 

                             We understand your concerns!

We’re ready to answer your questions about dental care. Thank you for your continued trust in our practice. As with the transmission of any communicicable disease like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also known as " Coronavirus", at any time or in any place. Be assured that we have always followed state and federal regulations and recommended universal personal protection and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases in our office and continue to do so. Here is a brief outline on our safety measures...

Introducing the "All New External Suction Unit" used in All treatment rooms.

We have enhanced our sterilization protocol, originally instituted during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980's. In addition we have installed air purifiers in every treatment room.

The EOS suction system-Aerosols and Droplets annihilator is designed and engineered to reduce droplet and aerosol spray that is an innate part of dental care.  During dental procedures Droplets and Aerosols are passed on to the dentist and staff’s bodies.   Patient care and the safety and health of the staff and the dentist is paramount, for the elimination of blood, aerosols and fine liquid particles.  All of which are annihilated by the ADS EOS system.

The EOS collects aerosols, droplets, dust and pathogens produced during routine dental procedures through a suction mouthpiece hood. Particulate matter is filtrated by the dust/particulate filter. The HEPA filter captures particles down to 0.3 microns with 99.995% efficiency. Clean dry air is exhausted from the base cabinet. The UVC lights are positioned on the HEPA filter and kills any remaining bacteria and viruses captured by the HEPA filter and are exhausted from the cabinet base.

 

Minimize Chance for Exposures

We ensure facility policies and practices are in place to minimize exposures to respiratory pathogens including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Measures are being implemented before patient arrival, upon arrival, throughout the duration of the patient’s visit, and until the patient’s room is cleaned and disinfected. After patient has completed the ADA pre-screening questionnaire and has confirmed no apparent symptoms of COVID-19 and no temperature over 100.3 degrees; we will then perform treatment. It is manditory for all who enter to wear a facial mask fully covering nose and mouth. Once in the treatment room we will ask you to wash your hands, remove mask and an oral rinse is giving for extra pre-cautions. It is particularly important to protect individuals at increased risk for adverse outcomes from COVID-19 (e.g., older individuals with comorbid conditions), including HCP who are in a recognized risk category.

Here are the steps we are taking for your safety...

  • Professional Protection Equipment (PPE) PPE provides the first layer of protection for dental professionals including gloves, face shields or eyewear, surgical masks, surgical caps, and gowns. Respirators need to be used for known infectious patients.
  • Antimicrobial Mouth Rinse - The second layer of protection is having the patient use an antimicrobial mouth rinse before the procedure.
  • High Velocity Air Evacuation (HVE) – The third layer of protection, the HVE, reduces airborne dental aerosol by up to 90%.
  • Air Filtration System – The fourth layer of protection is air filtration systems using a HEPA filter, carbon filter, electrostatic filtration, or ultraviolet germicidal system.
  • Air and Waterline Disinfection – The CDC also recommends following equipment guidelines for air and water discharge for a minimum of 20 to 30 seconds on each piece of equipment between each patient.
  • Dental Aerosol External Suction:utilize a self-supportive arm to position near the source with a powerful fan to draw in dental aerosol particles into the filtration system. The system releases the filtered air back into the surrounding room therefore improving the indoor air quality of the dental office. High quality filter options include HEPA Filters (up to 99.97% efficiency on particles 0.3 microns and larger), ULPA Filters (up to 99.9995% efficiency on particles 0.12 microns and larger), and activated carbon filters for chemical fumes. Dental Aerosol Extractors offer numerous benefits over other filtration systems including:Source Extraction – Self-supportive extraction arm allows the capture hood to be moved closer to the source. Source extraction helps to prevent contamination of surfaces, removes most of airborne particulate, and protects the breathing zon

We are utilizing universal source control and actively screen for fever or COVID-19 symptoms regardless of community transmission levels. You,"the patient" should inform the office of cold or flu like syptoms prior to all appointments. We can always re-appoint you at a later date once cleared by your physican.

 

Pennsylvania Department of Health

The Pennsylvania Department of Health issued a revised guidance for dental health care personnel
in Pennsylvania. The guidance allows dental health care providers the ability to provide
non-emergency healthcare, including routine cleanings. It is effective statewide,
and is not subject to the red/yellow/green standard, although it does provide
separate standards for areas with no, minimal, moderate, or substantial transmission.
 
The guidance instructs providers to apply the CDC Framework to determine the
conditions under which non-emergency and routine care can resume.
 
  • For areas with no transmission or minimal community transmission, routine care practices can resume
  • using standard precautions. The DOH guidance recommends utilizing the
  •  CDC Interim Guidance for Dental Settings
  •  when feasible, taking into consideration the possibility of transmission of the virus by presymptomatic
  • or asymptomatic patients.For areas with minimal to moderate or substantial transmission,
  • dental care can be provided using the CDC Interim Guidance for Dental Settings. According to the
  • CDC framework, areas with minimal to moderate transmission can provide routine care,
  • but should prioritize at-risk populations and those whose care,
  • if continually deferred, would more likely result in patient harm. Areas with substantial transmission
  • should consider deferring treatment until community transmission decreases.
