To ensure the safety of our patients and our team, we have some new procedures in our office:
Active Pure Air Purification: We will have 7 units throughout our clinic that will turn over the air 8 times every 15 minutes. This purifier is one of the most powerful on the market with dual air intakes and medical grade H13 filters (higher than True HEPA) with up to 99.7% particle removal down to .1 micron in size. Covid-19 is .125 microns in size. Not only can the air purifier help to remove virus carriers, it will remove pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, dust mite, odors, lead dust, and a multitude of other items. This will be helpful to combat aerosols as well as decrease allergens and increase overall health in our office.
Increased Personal Protection Equipment: We will continue to smile at you through the protective layers of our masks and face shield. Please bring a light jacket since we will be keeping the temperatures cool to keep everyone comfortable through the warmer months ahead.
Scheduling: We are staggering our schedule to help reduce patient traffic and to aid in social distancing.
Strict Staff Screening: All team members will be screened each morning for potential COVID-19 symptoms and temperatures will be taken daily.
Increased Cleaning Routine: While we already have strict cleaning and sterilization processes in place, we will be increasing the disinfection process in our clinical and non-clinical areas throughout the day.
Hypochlorous Acid spray: A weak acid that is used as a disinfectant. It is an EPA approved disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Hypochlorous acid, unlike chlorine bleach, is 100% safe and non-irritant.
New Policies for Patients:
Arriving: We recommend arriving 5 minutes early for your appointment. Due to our added safety & cleaning protocols, the full hour of your appointment time is important. Late arrivals may need to be rescheduled and charged a missed appointment fee. Once you have arrived, please remain in your car. Call the office at 425-823-1909 or text 425-374-1639 to check-in for your appointment. Please do not enter until we have notified you to come in so that we can coordinate temperature checks one at a time.
Screening: We will be screening all patients prior to your appointment. You will be asked the following questions:
Within the last 14 days have you experienced:
- Fever above 100.4 F
- Reoccurring cough/sore throat
- Shortness of Breath/Difficulty breathing
- Flu-like SymptomsAbrupt loss of smell and/or taste
- Close contact with a suspected or lab confirmed COVID-19 patient
- Travel outside of the country
We will not be treating patients who have any COVID-19 symptoms or who may have potential risk factors. We will ask you to reschedule. If you are symptomatic and are experiencing a dental emergency, please contact our office at 425-823-1909 so we can find an alternative way to assist you.
Masks: Please arrive at your appointment with a mask/face covering on. A scarf, bandana, or homemade mask will be suitable. We will provide you with a disposable mask if you do not have one or forget.
Hand Sanitizing: Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the office. We will ask you to use our hand sanitizer upon arrival.
Temperature Check:Your temperature will be taken with a touch less infrared thermometer upon arrival. If your temperature is above 100.4 degrees F, you will be rescheduled.
Social Distancing: We ask that you do not bring guests with you to your appointment with exceptions of adults accompanying children and those that need additional assistance. This recommendation is to reduce the number of people in the office and to limit exposure. Anyone entering the clinic will need to have their temperature taken regardless if they have an appointment or not.
Oral Rinse: We will be providing all adult patients with Colgate Optic White 2% hydrogen peroxide oral rinse prior to treatment. This extra 60 seconds of rinsing is a precautionary measure that has shown to substantially reduce oral bacteria and pathogens.
Our commitment to our wonderful patients as well as the community has not wavered.
A huge thank you to everyone locally that did their part at socially distancing, making necessary sacrifices and flattening the curve to keep our community safe. Our heartfelt appreciation to all those working at the front lines in health care, government, and service industries for your dedication and hard work.
We will miss all the hugging and the handshakes, but we know this is temporary to ensure everyone’s safety. Know that we will be smiling at you from behind our masks and excited to warmly welcome you back.
Please contact us by phone at (425) 823-1909, by text 425-374-1639 or email us at office8@MansonDentistry.com if we can be of further assistance.
