Dr. Z Smiles offices have reopened for patient treatment with new COVID-19 safety protocols in place for the safety of our patients and team members.
Before reopening, our entire team was led through our new COVID-19 protocols and updated on any new control recommendations made by the ADA and CDC. Patient safety is our top priority and we look forward to welcoming you back under our new COVID-19 patient care protocols.
Our office protocols follow the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We regularly monitor news from these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. Doing this makes sure our infection control procedures are the best in the industry and ensures our patient care is both safe and comfortable.
While our offices space has always featured the latest in sanitation and hands-free technology, we have implemented a few new policies and facility upgrades to help keep patients safe. All Dr. Z Smiles employees will be required to wear masks and shields during patient care. We have also installed a sneeze guard at the front check in desk for added staff and client protection. Patient common areas such as the check in desk countertop, waiting room and bathroom are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
On top of our new office protocols our entire dental office was built to be hands free and self-cleaning well before COVID-19. The faucets and soap dispensers in each treatment room are motion censored to eliminate points of contact. Our state-of-the-art treatment chairs are also self-sanitizing and water lines and upholstery are sanitized between patients.
Our offices uses hands free technology and the latest dental equipment to provide the highest level of patient care no matter the circumstance.
Along with our safety equipment we have also put in place a COVID-19 patient care procedure to provide the safest most enjoyable dental appointment possible. The treatment procedure follows a basic five step process that our friendly dental staff will guide you through during your next visit.
