At InSmile Dental, we've always upheld the strict standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, in light of our ever-changing environment since COVID-19, as your trusted dentist in Wylie, TX, we've taken some extra safety measures for infection control that we would like to share with you. Here's what you should know.
You Can Feel Relaxed and Safe at Our Dental Office
We screen all patients and staff members with temperature and symptom checks before staff start their workday and patients come in for their appointments.
To help our patients feel safer, we are only seeing one patient or family at a time by limiting overlapping dental appointments.
Infection Control Is a Top Priority
In the past, we've followed OSHA's guidelines for sanitizing and sterilizing our dental tools and instruments, as well as disinfecting our treatment rooms. Since 2020, we now follow an even more stringent protocol, such as:
- Disinfecting every surface touched before and after each patient, including things like door handles, faucets, etc.
- Installing medical-grade HEPA air filters in our dental office that filter out particles smaller than the coronavirus.
- Using disposable products as much as possible
- Following even stricter guidelines for instrument sterilization
We Can't Wait to See You!
We want you to feel relaxed and at ease when you visit your dentist in Wylie. Your dental health is important, so don't hesitate to schedule your next appointment. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about upcoming dental visits.
