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.
