Elite Dental Care COVID-19 Safety Procedures

Given the nature of our practice, our office has always been meticulously cleaned. We have always and will continue to employ rigorous sanitization practices to ensure that our patients are safe and comfortable during their visits. We continue to follow and update our safety precautions according to state and federal guidelines.

Your Safety Comes First

Along with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have introduced even stricter cleaning and sanitization procedures to prevent infections. We are doing everything we can to balance the need to provide necessary dental services while minimizing the risk to our patients and dental office staff. Here are just a few of the things our team is doing to keep everyone safe during visits:

Masks are worn by every staff member at all times
Visitors are required to wear masks at all times – unless treatment permits the removal of the mask
Frequent disinfection of common areas and treatment rooms
Availability of disinfectant gel for visitors and office personnel
Limited office capacity in order to reduce traffic and encourage adherence to social distancing
Request that the patient limit the number of visitors accompanying him or her to the dental appointment to only those people who are necessary
Additional time in-between patients
Increased ventilation within each treatment room
Proactively communicating to both personnel and patients the need for them to stay at home if sick
Encouraging personnel to stay home if they are feeling sick and provide flexibility in regards to sick leave
If you have any additional questions related to our COVID-19 safety protocol please call our office and we will be happy to answer your questions.
