About COVID 19

Your health and safety has always been our top priority! 

We adhere to the highest level of precautions and protocols to prevent the spread of infection, including COVID-19. 

To guarantee your confidence, we’ve enhanced  our safety protocols, including additional PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and strict cleaning  and disinfecting at the direction of  the  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),  American Dental Association (ADA),  Minnesota Dental Association (MDA), and Minnesota Board of Dentistry (BOD). 

Some of new policies include: 

  • Daily staff health assessments and temperature checks
  • Additional PPE  (personal protective equipment) including face shields, N95 masks, gowns,  protective eye wear, shoe covers, and gowns when necessary
  • Patient screening and temperature checks – at confirmation call, and when checking in Peroxide mouth rinses given prior to oral exams and procedures.
  • Hand sanitizer for employee and patient use (sinks available for handwashing when requested)
  • Social distancing of employees and patients when possible
  • Increased cleaning , including disinfecting common areas and high touch surfaces
  • New I-WARE Air Purifying system.

What to Expect when you arrive for your appointment:

 Our new check-in procedures include:

  • Mask worn upon entry.  For those who do not have a mask, one will be provided
  • A risk assessment/COVID-19 consent will be administered
  • We ask that if the patient is a minor, only one guardian attend the appointment
  • We are attempting to use contactless methods whenever possible – such as emailing registration forms to eliminate use of pens/clipboards in office, pre-payment to avoid  handling credit cards.
