INFECTION CONTROL

While our office has always followed CDC and OSHA guidelines regarding infection control, due to the Covid-19 crisis, we have added or changed many of our protocols, both for patients and staff. Needless to say, surface decontamination and air quality is our utmost concern and very strict protocols will be followed. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns that you might have.

A summary of what we are doing in light of the current situation is as follows:

  • Removed magazines in our reception rooms to ensure that every surface is clean and safe.
  • Repeated wipe-downs of all common area as well as shared surfaces with disinfectant as usual.
  • You may notice various filtration systems running throughout the office. These filtration systems have medical grade filters which help remove airborne particles that may be harmful to patients and team members
  • We have added Ultraviolet lights to our air conditioning system. UV light has been shown to be effective in inactiviating bacteria and viruses.
  • We have added plexiglass partitions at our front desk
  • You will notice that our reception area has been redesigned to allow for more spacing between seating
  • We ask that while in our office, please refrain from using your phone due to possible cross contamination
  • Upon entering treatment rooms, we ask that you do a pre-procedural rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide for 20 seconds
