COVID-19 Information

We have always prioritized the safety of our patients. We want to inform all our patients as to the efforts we are making to ensure and enhance our infection control procedures.

In addition to all our normal sterilization and disinfecting procedures, including wrapping all high touch surfaces with plastic barrier tape, wiping all surfaces with germicidal solution, and ultrasonic cleaning and autoclaving all instruments that are not disposable we are introducing several measures to reduce the chances of cross-contamination.

 We will have  hand sanitizer in the front for your use.  Mask must be worn even if fully vaccinated. Once in the operatory, you will notice the staff wearing extra protective gear such as N95 masks and more substantial face shields.  We also will have additional equipment to reduce aerosols.  Medical grade UV light sterilization will now be accomplished every day in each operatory as well.

These are trying and extraordinary times we are living through, but with increased vigilance and cooperation from everyone, we will get through this safely with health intact.


At East Hill Dental, your health and the health of our staff are of the utmost importance.  To ensure your health and the health of our staff, we do follow usual universal precautions in our operatories and office. Additionally, every half hour to an hour we wipe down the waiting room and common spaces with disinfectant.

For the protection of all our patients and staff due the recent outbreak of coronavirus, we are requesting the following:

  • If you have an illness or are exhibiting symptoms, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your dental appointment. Some illness and symptoms include:
    • a cold or the flu
    • fever or nausea
    • severe headaches or body aches
    • muscle or stomach pain, chest pain or difficulty breathing
    • vomiting or diarrhea
    • active tuberculosis (TB)
    • mumps, measles, chickenpox
    • other contagious disease
  • Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (ex. China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution

If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment.
