Dentists And Coronavirus: Is It Safe To See The Dentist During COVID-19?

Wondering if it’s safe to come and see Dr. Major or Dr. Zellmer for dental care at Fox Point Dental Studio? We’re open to patients in Fox Point, WI, but we understand that many patients may be wary about coming to the dentist due to the risk of COVID-19 coronavirus infection.

But at our office, we’ve made major investments in health and safety technologies, and are using the latest OSHA, CDC, and ADA-recommended best practices to keep you safe during your visit. Here are just a few of the ways we’re protecting staff and patients.

Custom Face Shields & N95 Masks

We take the protection of our staff very seriously, and we understand that dental staff could be a major transmission vector for COVID-19 coronavirus if they are not properly protected. That’s why we have invested in custom plastic face shields for all of our dental team members, as well as N95 masks that filter 95% of very small particles.

Acrylic Sneeze Guards/Cough Guards For The Front Office 

We have installed brand new Plexiglass acrylic shields on our front office to protect our staff from potential infection during check-ins and check-outs, and to protect patients from potential infection.

In addition, all of our staff are checked with a pre-screening every morning, which includes a temperature test, to ensure they are healthy and free of COVID-19 and any other infectious viruses.

UVA Disinfection Technology

Fox Point Dental Studio has invested in powerful UVA (Ultraviolet A) disinfecting equipment. This equipment uses ultraviolet light with a very short wavelength of 100-280nm, which can eliminate 99.99% of common pathogens on surfaces, with a 24-hour continuous kill rate.

We are utilizing this technology along with traditional cleaning products to disinfect all surfaces in our offices regularly, ensuring that we minimize the risk of spreading any illness at Fox Point Dental Studio. 

Pre-Patient Screenings & Temperature Checks With Infrared Thermometers

We will be checking the temperature of every patient before their appointment using contact-free infrared thermometers, which will help reduce the risk of treating an infected individual and keep our staff and patients safe.

We have also introduced pre-patient screening questionnaires to ask questions about contact with infected individuals, recent travel, and other factors that could raise the risk of COVID-19 coronavirus infection, ensuring we treat only patients who are healthy and symptom-free.

Pre-Procedure Rinses & Isodry Dental Isolation Systems 

All patients will rinse with hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria and viruses before their appointment, ensuring their mouths are virus-free. In addition, we have implemented Isodry dental isolation systems, which uses high-powered suction to reduce COVID-19 transmission vectors like saliva splatter and aerosols during dental cleanings and other appointments. 

Get The Dental Care You Need At Fox Point Dental Studio: Stay Safe During COVID-19 

Beyond all of the above steps, we’re also offering hand sanitizer throughout our office, disinfecting all common areas five times per day, and implementing clinical room barriers and patient-specific lab coats.
