The COVID-19 pandemic has forced lifestyle changes effecting how we work, travel and even how we interact with one another. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority at Spring Creek Dental. Our COVID-19 infection control processes and procedures have been developed from evidence based guidelines so that when you receive care, you can be sure that you’ll be safe. Our multi-faceted approach to keeping patients and staff safe include the following:
Spring Creek Dental follows the most current COVID-19 infection prevention and control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Our entire team has completed additional training in the CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Dental Settings During the COVID-19 Response as well as a Respiratory Protection Program designed specifically for Spring Creek Dental. In addition, we regularly monitor the health of our staff to limit the transmission of COVID-19.
We have invested in technology such as ancillary high-speed evacuation equipment and non-chemical air disinfection units to reduce and eliminate potentially harmful aerosols. In addition, we have updated our HVAC system to idealize air exchanges per hour and and installed Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) technology which has been shown in studies to be 99.9% effective in the sterilization of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in 30 seconds.
You may also notice some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
We ask for your patience and support as we implement these new systems so we can keep you, your family and our staff safe during this time. We will never compromise when it comes to your health and safety. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns or feedback. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon!
