Dental offices have always been amazing at infection control practices (pandemic or not). We take it very seriously. We follow CDC, ADA, and local requirements and recommendations to help keep our patients and staff as safe and healthy as possible, including:
Long standing infection control practices continue, including professional sterilization of tools and instruments, and complete sterilization of surfaces in operatories in between every patient. We are trained professional in avoiding cross-contamination!
We use recommended Personal Protective Equipment to keep both staff and patients safe. All team members, including our front office staff, wear masks inside the office.
Touchpoints in our lobby and restroom are sanitized regularly.
We have moved to electronic forms to reduce the need for handling paper and pens (also good for reducing our carbon footprint!). You can complete your paperwork and updates to your information your own phone or on our ipads, which are sanitized regularly. We share copies of your treatment plans and consent forms straight to your email.
Patients are screened for covid risk and appointments are postponed if/when a risk presents. We follow emerging CDC recommendations in determining risk.
We practice social distancing in our waiting room. Patients also have the option of waiting in their vehicles as an alternative.
We run medical grade air filters inside the office.
Hand sanitizer is available upon entry, and masks are currently required for everyone regardless of vaccination status (except during examination and treatment), per current CDC recommendations for health care providers.
We care deeply about the health and well-being of our patients, staff, and community. If you have any questions, please give us a call (480) 785-9191
Yours in Good Health,
Dr. Collin Ito
