Forever Smiles Pediatric Dentistry

What are your COVID protocols?

WE ARE COMMITTED TO YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY

More than ever, infection control will be our top priority. To better inform you and set your mind at ease, I want to share with you our new protocols designed with your family’s health in mind.

Our office follows 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). On a daily basis, we will follow the activities of these agencies to remain up-to-date on new rulings or guidance.

CHANGES YOU’LL NOTICE ON YOUR NEXT VISIT

  • We have purchased a medical-grade air purifier with HEPA filters for our office. Medify Air Purifier is the highest standard for clean air.
  • To minimize and remove droplets and aerosols, we utilize multiple Extra-oral Dental Suction System units (ADS) during treatment; H14 HEPA Filter, Medical grade UV-C lights.
  • Appointments will be managed to facilitate social distancing guidelines between patients.
  • Throughout our office, we will provide you with hand sanitizers (to be used upon entering).
  • We ask all parents to minimize the number of family members at our office; therefore, one parent per child, please.
  • Regrettably, magazines, children’s toys, and so forth will no longer be provided (to prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, and viruses).
  • Most pediatric practices have ‘open bay style treatment areas.’ We are one of a select few practices with private enclosed rooms (limiting your contact and exposure with others).
  • Dr. Abazari and Team will be screened daily to ensure that our team members are healthy at the office.
  • Dr. Abazari and staff will be changing their Protective equipment (PPE) per patient.
  • You will receive a text or email 48 hours before your child’s appointment with a CO VID-19 pre-screening questionnaire. It must be completed 24 hours before the appointment.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please knock on our door. We will then confirm that you can come on in, or we may ask that you wait for a few minutes to assure social distancing and to allow to thoroughly sanitize the treatment room to protect you and your child.
  • You and your child’s temperature will be taken upon entering our office.
  • We are asking parents to please wear a mask upon entering our office. We will gladly provide you with one if you do not have a mask.
  • We use Disinfectant Fogger. This fogger generates aerosolized Hypochlorous Acid that kills microbial pathogens in the air and surface instantly. We use the fogger multiple times a day!

We will be phasing our treatment from emergency and urgent care first and then non-aerosol producing treatment, and then treatment will produce minimal aerosol.

As always, we will wear fun accessories to make your child’s visit a personable and happy experience. To make an appointment, please call our office or visit our website.

Health Screening Before and During Your Visit

As mentioned, prior to your appointment, we will visit with you by phone (generally) or via email (if necessary) to confirm your appointment and to ask you some health questions related to COVID-19. When you actually come in for your appointment (generally, there are a few days between these events), we will ask the same health questions again to ensure nothing has changed since our phone visit. This is a copy of the screening questions from the American Dental Association that we will be using.
