At All Coast Dental, we recognize that the COVID-19 Global Pandemic has created some extremely stressful and uncertain times. Together we have been through an unprecedented global response calling on our innermost self-control and determination in stopping the spread and “flattening the curve.”
As communities begin to re-open and we begin to take measures toward re-opening our practice, we do so cautiously, and with the recommendations from the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control).
For the safety of both our patients and staff we will be implementing new protocols and screening procedures. As an extra precaution, we have added new specialized air filtration systems and ultra-violet sanitation equipment within our office.
Our office has its own dedicated ventilation system (AC/Heater). Any air circulating in our office goes through our new HVAC system which is equipped with a commercial grade electrostatic 3M 1900 Premium Filtrete that can remove allergen, bacteria and viruses.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Boulos has researched every possible way to ensure the safest dental office for our patients and our staff. To complement our infection control process, we have made additions:
Extraoral Dental Suction System : It is a device which removes aerosols and droplets via a high speed suction system, a medical grade HEPA filtration system that removes particles down to 0.3 micron, and a medical grade UV light disinfectant inside the system to kill all viruses and bacteria that are trapped in the filter.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation: is most often utilized as a lamp at emits UV-C light in the operating room for air sanitization. It is a sterilization method commonly used to destroy airborne microorganisms and has been used in the sterilization of equipment, instruments, and operating room disinfection.
As always, we are committed to the well-being of our patients and their dental care, bringing the highest standards and updated technologies to our dental office. We look forward to seeing you soon!
With Warmest Regards and Best of Health.
Dr Joseph Boulos.
