Dental Office Safety Protocol – Plano, TX
Our Commitment to Safety
We recognize times have changed. Priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is of more importance to us here at Vitality Dental than the health and safety of our staff and patients.
With this in mind, there are 11 additional steps we are taking to make each visit to our dental office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standards of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental offices.
Our goal is to add peace-of-mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is part of an on-going commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.
We are in this together, and we will never underestimate the power of a smile!
Advanced Team Training
Each member of our team has completed additional awareness and prevention programs to enhance their knowledge and preparedness.
Pre-Screening of Every Patient
A quick health questionnaire and consent form along with a no-touch temperature check will be completed when you arrive at our dental office.
Hospital-Grade Hand Sanitizing Station
Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our dental office.
Cleaning After Every Appointment
We are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment and surfaces in each operatory after every patient.
Deep Cleaning Every Evening
Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down.
CDC-Approved Instrument Sterilization
This is standard procedure at all times, and nothing has changed. Anything that goes near your mouth is heat and pressure cleaned between every use.
Even our friendly administrative team will be wearing masks. Don’t worry. They are smiling behind those masks!
Two masks are not enough. Our clinical team will also protect you and themselves through the use of FDA Approved PET face shields.
Advanced Chairside Suction
Whenever possible, we will activate high speed evacuation to minimize aerosol contamination and improve air quality.
HEPA Air Filtration
Our air has never been cleaner. We have added HEPA-grade filters to our HVAC system along with stand-alone air cleaners in each operatory.
Installed Clear Barriers
Hard plastic guards have been placed strategically throughout the dental office – and are cleaned regularly – to help block the movement of airborne particles.
