Coronavirus Safety in our Dental Office
The California Dental Association (CDA) is closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and has gathered the latest information and tips in one place to help members decrease their risks and protect their patients, staff, and practice
Dr. Daniel Jeffrey Cohen, DDS, and his staff have always worked diligently to provide excellent dental care for their patients and at the same time to meet or exceed infectious disease prevention standards. Treatment rooms and instruments are sterilized and disinfected prior to every dental appointment with the use of Autoclave sterilization and Surface Disinfectants. Additionally, Dr. Cohen and his staff wash with soap and water or Hand Sanitizers before and after every patient visit. They also use Protective Personal Barriers: medical scrubs, gloves, and masks, etc.
As an added precaution during the CORONAVIRUS outbreak our office is taking the following precautions to help to reduce the risk to all of our patients and staff.
- All our staff has been asked if they suspect that they may be ill or have come in contact with someone who might have been exposed to the Coronavirus to not come to work.
- We are asking all patients that suspect that they may be ill or have come in contact with someone who might have been exposed to the Coronavirus to not come to the office.
- For the safety of everyone in the office, we have Hand Sanitizer dispensers in the front office and in every operatory. We would be glad to direct you to the nearest Hand Sanitizer should you need to use it.
To date, we know of no one in our office (patients or staff) who have come in contact with the Coronavirus. We always strive to keep the health of our patients and staff at the highest priority. All inquiries to our office about our Coronavirus and/or general hygiene protocols are always welcome.
