At Dental Specialists of North Florida, we are dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. We have taken the highest precautions and infection control measures to make your visits to our office as safe as possible.
We strictly follow the guidelines provided by the ADA, CDC, and OSHA as part of the infection control procedures. Also, we stay up-to-date on any new guidance provided by these agencies.
Have a look at the changes we implemented in our office to help protect our patients and staff:
Virtual Waiting Room
Please give us a call when you arrive and remain in your vehicle until we assess your temperature. If you have a temperature at or above 100.4° F, we will reschedule your appointment.
Pre-Screen Every Patient
We will ask you some pre-screening questions when we confirm your appointment and again when you arrive at the office. You will have to fill out and submit the pre-screening form the day before your appointment.
Expanded Patient Appointments
We will manage the appointments in a way that we could maintain social distancing between patients. This means we will be offering fewer options to schedule your visit.
Hospital-Grade Hand Sanitizing Station
When you enter the office, we will ask you to use a hand sanitizer, and also, you can find some in each operatory room and other places in the office which you can use according to the necessity. For hand sanitizing stations, we use a minimum of 70% alcohol sanitizer.
Oral Anti-Microbial Rinse
Before making you sit on the dental chair, you will have to use an oral pre-rinse for about 30 seconds.
Daily Health Check-Up For Our Team
We will keep in check our staff's temperature each morning and ask the same screening questions we ask our patients.
Every one of us in the team will keep our lovely smiles protected under masks at all times.
When appropriate, our team will also utilize another layer of protection. This includes hair cover and double gloves, which can help in minimizing the spread or absorption of airborne particles.
Everything in our practice is sterilized. This is something we do ever since we started our practice. You can trust us and need not worry about anything.
Cleaning After Every Appointment
In each operatory, after every patient, we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment, and surfaces to make everything super clean.
Advanced Staff Training
We have trained our team members regarding additional awareness and prevention programs to enhance their knowledge and keep them more prepared.
No Magazines Or Toys
Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, coffee, or toys, as it is quite hard to clean and disinfect these items.
We appreciate you for staying strong during all these tough times. We look forward to seeing you soon and happily answer any questions you may have in your mind regarding the steps we have taken to make your visit a safe and secure one. To make an appointment, please call our office at 904-794-1000.
