Ensuring Best Practices for Infection Control in the Dental Office
As we have all become concerned with the dangers of the corona virus Covid-19, we would like to share with you, our patient, some of the steps we take in our office to minimize exposure to this virus and to other pathogens, as well as to address the precautions you should take.
Our standard protocol at The Shaw Dental Center has always remained constant. All personnel treating patients must wash their hands with antimicrobial soap before and after each procedure. Hand disinfectant gel is used liberally throughout the office. Our instruments are heat-steam sterilized under pressure in an autoclave machine to kill all viruses, bacteria and spores. Our surfaces are sprayed and wiped between patients with a quaternary ammonium germicide. Plastic barrier shields are placed on frequently touched points throughout the operatories and replaced after each patient. These are standard infection-control guidelines that we have always followed. Recently, we began using germicide disinfectants on all surfaces of the reception area with which patients will come in contact, and these surfaces are sprayed and wiped frequently throughout the day. Dental personnel and all employees have been instructed not to report to work if they are experiencing a cough or any cold-like symptoms.
To you, our patient, we remind you to avoid contact with people who are sick, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and to cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects (ie: keys, cell phones, steering wheels, door handles). Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you are not feeling well or develop any cold-like symptoms, please stay home. Seek medical attention if you develop fever.
Stay informed. We will update regularly as information becomes available.
Wishing you good health!
