Well Beyond Dental is dedicated to providing excellent dental care in the safest environment possible for our patients and our team. As we prepare for another potential increase in COVID-19 cases and other winter-related illnesses, we want to share the COVID-19 safety procedures we have put in place to address the health and safety concerns of our patients as you prepare for your next visit to our office. We have always gone well beyond all CDC, ADA, and OSHA requirements to deliver safe patient care and in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have doubled our safety efforts. Importantly, we have installed MEDIFY AIR filters in every patient room. These filters contain medical-grade HEPA filters capable of removing 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Each filter can clean a patient room every 30 minutes. In addition, we have installed two larger MEDIFY AIR HEPA filters in our waiting room that clean the waiting room area every 30 minutes.
To further address COVID-19 safety concerns, we have decreased the number of seats in our waiting room to accommodate social distancing. We have removed all magazines and other items in our waiting room to help prevent the spread of any germs. Patients are also welcome to remain in their cars until a patient room is ready. We have increased our pre-screening protocols when confirming patient appointments and before entering our facility to ensure no ill or potentially ill people come into contact with our staff or other patients. In addition, each dental care provider must wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks, face shields or goggles, gloves, scrubs, etc. All non-provider team members are required to wear masks at all times while in our building. We have increased the sterilization procedures for all countertops, doorknobs, patient chairs, and as well as any other areas where patients or team members are exposed. Our commitment to the health and safety of our patients and team has always been and will continue to be our top priority. As leaders in the Reno dental community, we will continue to provide excellent healthcare no matter what challenges we face.
