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 Silicon Valley Dental Care, 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:
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.
Pre-Screening of Every Patient
We will ask you some pre-screening questions when we confirm your appointment and again when you arrive at the office. You will have to fill out and submit the pre-screening form the day before your appointment.
Expanded Patient Appointments
We will manage the appointments in a way that we could allow social distancing between patients. This means we will be offering fewer options to schedule your visit.
Hospital-Grade Hand Sanitizing Station
When you enter the office, we will ask you to use a hand sanitizer, and also, you can find some in each operatory room and other places in the office which you can use according to the necessity.
Daily Health Checks of Our Team
We will keep in check our staff's temperature each morning and ask the same screening questions as we ask our patients .
N95 & ASTM Level 3 Masks
Every one of us in the team will keep our lovely smiles protected behind N95 masks at all times.
Disposable, Protective Coats & Hats
When appropriate, our team will also utilize another layer of protection. This includes hair cover and double gloves, which can help in minimizing the spread or absorption of airborne particles.
From head to toe, we are doing everything possible to stop the spread of dangerous particles or viruses. This also includes covering our shoes.
HEPA Air Filtration
Our air has never been cleaner. Each operatory room is equipped with High-level HEPA filter air purifiers.
Advanced Aerosol Reduction Tools
Special equipments such as Rubberdam and Isodry will be utilized to limit aerosols.
Even though we are using different equipment that help with reducing the aerosols, each operatory room will be fogged and disinfected immediately after finishing a procedure.
This is something we do ever since we started our practice. You can trust us and need not worry about anything
Cleaning After Every Appointment
In each operatory, after every patient, we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment, and surfaces to make everything super clean.
Advanced Staff Training
Each member of our team has been educated on additional awareness and prevention to enhance their knowledge and preparedness.
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 (408) 224-1333.
