As we all continue to take precautions against the coronavirus, it is important to know what steps are being taken to make environments safe. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we have always been committed to sustaining safe and sterile treatment environments so that we can safely care for our patients. In response to the threat of coronavirus, we have updated our in-office practices to offer important additional protections. That has meant revising our scheduling and patient greeting practices, but it has also meant implementing technology that better protects everyone against possible contaminants. Access to periodontal care can be particularly important for those who are affected by periodontal disease. If this condition is not being managed properly, it can lead to more problems with tissue damage, tooth loss, and negative changes in your overall well-being!
We Are Committed To Keeping Patients And Team Members Safe Against Infections
In order to make our office a safe space for patients and the members of our team, we have stayed current with ADA and CDC guidelines, and have looked for opportunities to increase the safety of our practice. We have always taken sterilization and safety seriously, as these measures are important when providing periodontal services. In light of the threat posed by the coronavirus, we have added new technology while also making changes to how we interact with patients.
How Our Recent Changes Protect Patients
Before patients show up at our office for treatment, we take care to learn if they may pose a risk for spreading infection by communicating with them and asking important questions. Additional stations with sanitizer have been set up, and patients are asked to have masks on when they arrive at our facility. Appointments have actually been spaced out to minimize patient interactions, and our waiting area has had items people might handle removed. To further make our indoor settings safe, we have added new filtration technology to remove airborne particulates.
We Are Ready To Take Care Of Your Periodontal Health!
Whether you need to have your gums evaluated for possible periodontal disease or require ongoing treatments to fight an active infection, our office is ready to help!
