Covid 19 - Keeping You Safe

ADVANCED SAFETY PROTOCOL DENTISTRY – State College, PA

Steps We're Taking to Make Every Visit Safe

Thank you for your patience and support during these difficult times. The good news is that Governor Wolf gave us the permission in June to care for all of our patients needs. During the shutdown and ongoing we worked as a team, tirelessly to educate, make necessary adjustments and to find the proper PPE to keep you and the entire team safe.

OSHA compliant

We hired a certified OSHA trainer to fit test our masks and train us on proper use, written CDC protocols; thus making us OSHA certified.

Daily Health Checks of Our Team

No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing and able to provide safe dental care – every day.

Hard Plastic Guards

Hard plastic guards have been placed in the administrative area to help block the movement of airborne particles.

Protective Coats, Hats, N95 Masks and Face Shields

When appropriate, our team will utilize additional layers of protection to minimize the spread or absorption of airborne particles.

Virtual Waiting Room

Now, you can check-in from your car. As a result, you are able to minimize contact with others, bypass the reception area, and go directly to your treatment room.

HEPA Air Filtration

Each of our treatment rooms have an air filtration device running with a HEPA filters.

External Suctions

In addition to the enhanced “Dry Shield” high-speed evacuation used in your mouth there is an external high-speed suction placed at patient level to capture aerosols.

Fogging

Along with our usual sterilization and disinfection procedures, we also will be fogging an all-natural disinfectant throughout the day.

High Powered UVC Lights

Illuminated after patients exit the space - this is the same level of viral mitigation you may have observed in ambulance or in hospital operating rooms.

Additional Staff Added

To disinfect public places throughout the day and to ensure patient screening prior to appointments.

Anti-viral Rinse

We will provide a flavored peroxide containing solution to rinse prior to your procedure.

Tele-Dentistry

Many of our consultation appointments are being conducted with a tele dentistry approach to minimize office traffic. Of course, certain situations require technology and an in-person visit.

Thank you for your patience and understanding for the additional time needed for each appointment. We opened very cautiously at first and feel we have an organized approach to safety and health. We cannot wait to get you back on track to excellent oral health.
