Precautions our office is taking to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for both patients and staff:
For routine endodontic cases the tooth will be isolated with a rubber dam. This reduces the chance of bacterial and viral spread into the room.
Use of Betadine solution to swab the isolated tooth prior to access opening. Iodine solutions have been shown to have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
All surgical patients will receive an oral iodine solution for rinsing prior to procedure.
We will utilize an air purifier consisting of a charcoal filter, a Super HEPA Filter, and a third layer of SP Media which kills bacteria and viruses. The air in the room will be circulated through this purifier 18 times per hour. This will reduce the viral droplets in the circulating room air.
