About COVID-19 Safe Dentistry
Dr John Bain and our team at Natural Family Dentistry want you to know that we have a keen focus on infection control, especially as it relates to Covid-19. Dr Bain has worked hundreds of hours during the Covid-19 pandemic to write us a working manual entitled, "Covid-19 Safe Dentistry Field Guide - Game-Changer Equipment & Ideas". We have used it for training purposes.
There are many ways that dentists can use to mitigate the threat of Covid-19. We certainly don't claim to have exclusive knowledge or superiority. Most all dentists sincerely care about their patients. Dr Bain feels that God has led us down certain paths that have been advantageous in this effort though.
One example is that our office has been accustomed to mitigating aerosols for many years with our mercury removal equipment and techniques. The scavengers used for that have HEPA filtration. The two-cartridge masks we use for that also have HEPA filtration and are said to exceed N95 masks in filtration. We have added multiple room air filters with virus-rated HEPA filtration in addition to what we had. With Covid-19, the mitigation of aerosols and splatter as a routine is extremely important. We have that covered.
We have many other procedure and protocol changes that will help keep everyone safe. Wear a mask (and bring your own blanket if desired) into the office. We will give you a mask at the entrance if you don't have one. We check the temperature of every team member and everyone that enters daily. We are having a scrub sink installed where the water fountain was before. Everyone entering will wash their hands. We will let you know more and more as time goes on. God bless. Stay Safe. Get healthy and stay healthy.
