COVID-19 Updates

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice.  Here are some of the steps we take to keep our families and team members safe:

  • All surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops, are cleaned and disinfected thoroughly with medical grade disinfectants that kill 99.9% of all harmful bacteria and viruses
  • Disposable protective coverings on equipment are disposed of and replaced after each patient visit
  • Non-disposable items such as dental tools and instruments are cleaned and sterilized between patients using hospital grade sterilization which is monitored and tested on a regular basis
  • Disposable dental tools and needles are disposed of and never reused
  • SKBD team members involved in patient care use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks, gowns and eyewear
  • All high touch surfaces (ie: door handles, countertops) are wiped down and disinfected on an hourly basis 
  • HEPA air purifiers have been placed throughout the office in the reception and treatment areas
  • SBKD team members trained to proactively stay at home if they are not feeling well
  • SBKD team members are screened daily and anyone with a temperature greater than 100.4F are sent home

We have also made some scheduling and check-in changes to accommodate for social distancing:

  • We will communicate with you beforehand to ask COVID-19 screening questions
  • Only patients with appointments and one guardian will be permitted into the office
  • Universal masking – we ask that the accompanying guardian wear a mask before entering the office; if child is able to, we ask they wear a mask as well
  • You will be receiving a text on the morning of the appointment, please complete the screening questions again
  • Text/call us when you arrive and wait in your car instead of the waiting room
  • We will call you when we are ready to see your child
  • Patient and guardian’s temperature will be checked prior to entry
  • Use hand sanitizer when you enter the office
  • Waiting room will no longer offer children’s toys or books
  • Your child may be asked to gargle with 1.5% hydrogen peroxide antimicrobial rinse
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients, which might mean fewer scheduling options
  • We will do our best to reduce wait times and reduce the number of patients in the reception area
