Going Beyond the Guidelines for Your Safety and Comfort

We fully understand that some patients are worried about potential exposure during the COVID-19 outbreak. But we want to assure you that we are doing everything possible to mitigate any risk of transmission.

South Florida Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry has undertaken numerous infection control measures that far exceed guidelines from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Dental Association (ADA). As a matter of fact, as reported in a recent NPR article titled “The Dentist Will See You Now. But Should You Go?” leaders in the study of infectious disease report “no confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmitted in a dental office so far.”

Our enhanced safety measures go well beyond our already meticulous standards to create the safest possible environment for our patients and team members. Some of these steps include:

  • Touchless forms for health histories
  • Hyper-HEPA air filtration and aerosol vacuum systems in every treatment room
  • Antiseptic-cooled electric hand pieces and Cavitrons to minimize noxious aerosol production
  • Professional whole-office disinfection
  • Appointment scheduling to respect distancing guidelines
  • Full compliance with CDC guidelines

Don’t Neglect Your Oral Health!

A healthy mouth can indicate a healthy body. Don’t compromise your ability to fight off infection by not addressing possible gum (gingivitis or periodontitis) infection.  Now, more than ever, it’s critical you make sure you address any concerns or issues. And remember, your safety —and comfort—are always our top priorities.

Thank you for your continued confidence in our practice!
