The top priority for the dentists and team members at Blue Coast Dental is making sure that all patients receive their care in a safe and comfortable environment. As a result of COVID-19 continuing to impact our day-to-day lives, we’ve made it a priority to include many advanced safety protocols into our office.
We take infection control seriously, which is why we not only follow all guidelines required by the American Dental Association, the U.S. Center for Disease Control, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, but we’ve gone above and beyond by installing our own air filtration devices in every room. You’ll also find that we perform routine temperature checks, enforce strict social distancing, provide additional personal protective equipment, and assign thorough, daily infection control and sanitation practices to one of our team members.
With this in mind, there’s no reason not to maintain your routine dental exams and cleanings, especially during the current pandemic. As you’ll soon learn, keeping conditions like gum disease to an absolute minimum help you avoid more than just gum sensitivity and tooth loss.
