Pearly Isles Dental Safety Protocols

Our continued commitment to serve our community

We want to reassure you that we continue to make every effort to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Our dental office always has been – and will continue to be – one of the safest places to be. Our team members have always strictly adhered to, and exceeded the standards for, infection control.

Please feel free to read more below about our increased safety protocols that are aligned with CDC recommendations.

And rest assured, you are safe with us.


 

 

We will continue to follow the CDC’s recommended guidelines, including but not limited to:

  • Wearing personal protective gear and removing replacing it in between patients
  • Using hospital-grade disinfectants
  • Practicing the latest sterilization protocols
  • Utilizing single-use disposable materials
  • Increased frequency of hand washing
  • Limiting the number of people in the practice and practicing social distancing
  • Checking team members temperatures throughout the day
  • We will continue to disinfect all areas that each patient comes into contact with after each patient visit, including but not limited to all counter tops, equipment and dental chairs

 

 

Given the current situation, we have established additional safety protocols to minimize the risk of infection for both our you and our team:

  • As a precaution you will have your temperature screened prior to entering the office. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher (as recommended by the CDC) will have their appointment rescheduled for another day.
  • We ask that if you have any symptoms associated with either the Coronavirus or the flu, to please reschedule your appointment. If you have been in contact with anyone who has had symptoms consistent with the Coronavirus or the flu, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment. To see what the symptoms of the Coronavirus are, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html .
  • You will be asked to text the office upon arrival and remain in your car until called into the office for your appointment. When it is time to begin treatment, we will contact you via phone or text and you will be brought into the office to complete any additional forms or be escorted directly into the treatment room. We will reserve the waiting room for patients that had to use either public transportation or were dropped off for their appointment. This allows us to limit the number of people in the waiting room following all “social distancing” protocols..
  • When you arrive – and before you leave – you will be provided with some hand sanitizer or be asked to wash your hands in the designated area.
  • For parents or guardians of minors: only one (1) adult may enter the office with a minor patients. This allows us to adhere to the “social distancing” guidelines.

We thank you for your understanding and patience. The safety of you and our team is our primary concern.
