To our valued patients,
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these challenging times. We understand there is a lot of concern about the spread of the virus and everyone’s safety. We would like to inform all of you about some of the changes we have made at our office to keep you and your families as safe as possible when you come for your dental care.
Our team has always practiced with the most stringent infection control protocols, however we have now added a few additional layers for your protection. In addition to our normal disinfection protocol with germicidal hospital grade disinfectant wipes, we have added another disinfectant spray that is applied to all surfaces in the treatment rooms. In each treatment room there is a hepa filtration air purifier that cleans the air several times each hour and works in combination with a separate ultraviolet light attached to our hvac system that also kills and purifies any airborne particles.
The visit to the office will also flow a little different than your previous visits, we will explain that to you when you schedule. The purpose of that is to minimize contact with as few people as possible to maximize social distancing. And finally our own personal protective equipment is more enhanced to keep everyone safe.
We are confident that our new protocols will greatly minimize any risk and enhance the safety of your visit. We will continue to follow any health and safety recommendations from the CDC, OSHA and the ADA. In time we hope we can all return to a sense of normalcy we had before the Covid19 pandemic, but until then we will do our best to keep you safe and healthy at our office.
To your health,
Arnold Pfannenstiel DDS FAGD
Harry Gohn DMD and the Dental Team
