Delivering Dental Care Safely
SAFETY ON OUR MOBILE CLINICS:
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT ON BOARD
With COVID-19’s effect on residents of senior care communities, and all Americans, one of the last things you may want to do is sit in a waiting room for a dental appointment, or arrange transport with questionable sanitary practices. Our mobile clinics eliminate both transport concerns, as well as exposure to anyone but the necessary dental team, and this takes place right at the patient’s front door. Read on for how we prepare for each visit, and what to expect on board our mobile clinics.
From purified air, stringent infection control policies, and a single patient at a time, we have made every effort to be the safest way to receive your dental care. We just happen to do it right at your front door!
Before We Arrive:
Before you or your loved one boards the handicap accessible mobile clinic, our team has prepared to care for you in the safest possible manner. Each staff member is screened for symptoms of illness, temperature screened, and Covid-19 tested. All of our patients are also pre-screened before boarding the clinic. Our single operatory clinics mean that there is no shared air with any other patient.
During Your Visit:
When we arrive, our dental team will greet you or your loved one at the door of your community, eliminating extra visitors inside of your home of community. Donning respiratory, eye, hand, and body personal protective equipment, our team will escort you on to our clinic where the air is purified by the highest grade filter on the market (the ULPA filter), the surfaces are disinfected, and the clean and state-of-the-art dental operatory is ready to care for all of your dental needs.
After Your Visit:
Once the dental team has escorted you or your loved one back home or to your community, the clinic air is circulated by both ULPA and HEPA filters, Cavicide disinfectant is used to clean all surfaces, and all disposable materials and barriers are discarded. All reusable dental instruments are prepared for heat and steam sterilization, and UV-C light sanitation bathes the clinic. Our team has practiced the highest standards of infection control before the COVID-19 pandemic, and will continue to do so after the dust has settled. All billing and paperwork is contactless and timely.
