PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is a combination of safety items our dental team wears to keep both themselves and patients safe. This includes disposable medical gowns, N-95 masks, eye coverings, and gloves.
We take extra caution to switch out masks after every patient, routinely switch gloves during a procedure when needed, and dispose of gowns after every patient visit.
Wear gloves during every procedure, with every patient, and during simple oral exams. As well as when cleaning rooms, instruments, and equipment.
We use disposable gloves so that no one pair is used on different patients. In addition, we switch out gloves at least once with the same patient.
Washing hands immediately after taking gloves off.
Wearing disposable gowns for every procedure and not wearing the same gown for more than one patient.
Wearing N95 masks during every procedure. During high virus times (like COVID-19), all staff members will wear masks the entire day, throughout the office, including the front desk. Masks will be switched out between patients and when leaving an operating room.
