The whole community went through a lot over the last few months, and we all are looking for ways to get back to our normal habits and routines. We, at Desert Breeze Dentistry, are dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. We have taken certain infection control measures to make your visits 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:
PPE and Staff Training
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 reinforced our staff and doctor PPE barriers. We have trained our team members regarding additional awareness, and also prevention programs to enhance their knowledge and keep them more prepared.
Pre-Screening Of Every Patient and Staff
Before making an appointment, we will pre-screen patients on the phone, in case they have any symptoms. We will keep in check the temperature of our staff each morning and ask the same screening questions as we ask our patients.
Social Distancing Within the Office
We keep social distancing and stay on top of ADA requirements. You will be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment, as we need to manage appointments in a way to allow social distancing between patients.
Virtual Waiting Room
Please give us a call when you arrive and remain in your vehicle until we assess your temperature. If you have a temperature at or above 100.4° F, we will reschedule your appointment.
Sanitize Your Hands
We have a hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office.
Compulsorily Wear a Mask
Make sure to wear a cloth mask whenever you arrive at the dental office.
Oral Anti-Microbial Rinse
Before making you sit on the dental chair, you will have to use an oral pre-rinse for about 30 seconds.
Sterilization of Instruments
This is something we do ever since we started our practice. We sterilize all our dental instruments after every use.
After the visit, we encourage you to use payment options like e-transfer, CareCredit or credit card over the phone to promote social distancing at the front desk
At the End of the Day
We have hired a special cleaning crew to clean and disinfect the office from top to bottom in preparation for the following day.
We appreciate you for staying strong during all such tough times. We look forward to seeing you again and happily answer any questions you may have in your mind regarding the steps we have taken to make your visit a safe and secure one. To make an appointment, please call our office at (480) 345-7413.
