At The Grove Family Dental our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients and team members. As a leading healthcare authority in our community, we wanted to reach out to all of our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus, and let you know the steps we are taking to safely provide our services and alleviate any potential concerns.
Fortunately for our wonderful patients, you have the unique opportunity to receive care in a modern brand-new and clean facility during these highly sensitive times. With newer equipment and supplies in the hands of experienced staff with over 10 years of experience, you can be confident in receiving the highest quality dental care in one of the safest dental settings in Elk Grove. We have also invested in creating private treatment rooms that create natural infection control barriers in the dental setting. Our medical-grade H-13 HEPA air purifiers and medical-grade UV sterilizers go above and beyond the standard infection control procedures used in the majority of dental offices.
We would also like to be transparent about infection control standards in the healthcare space in order to ease any concerns you may have about seeing your dentist. In general, we recommend all our patients wash their hands frequently, avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home if you aren’t feeling well.
Based on the latest recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), ADA (American Dental Association), CDA (California Dental Association) and other national healthcare providers, we are implementing new enhanced standards for treatment and access into our dental setting.
These standards include:
Enhanced patient and staff screening protocols:
Proper social etiquette in a medical setting:
Regular hand washing:
Use of personal protective equipment:
Using proper respiratory and cough etiquette:
Use of sterile instruments and devices:
Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces throughout the operatories and office:
At The Grove Family Dental, you can be confident we will always follow strict cleaning policies for the protection of both our staff and our patients. Each staff member maintains rigorous personal hygiene standards in and outside the office setting. These processes have always been of utmost importance in our office and will continue to be the standards we uphold for our community.
Please rest assured that we are following local and national updates daily and will continue to maintain the highest level of safety and patient care that you have come to expect. If you have any questions regarding your future appointments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We will be providing additional updates through Email, Facebook and other social media channels to keep our community and patients abreast of the latest updates regarding the current health situation.
Again, thank you for being a valued patient with The Grove Family Dental. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence. Together we can overcome these challenging circumstances and continue your path to greater health! We look forward to taking care of you at your next scheduled appointment.
