COVID 19 Special instructions and Social Distancing measures

Special Engineering for Social Distancing due to Covid

  •  We understand aersools in Dental offices can be scary so in our waiting area and every treatment room, we installed state of the art Molekule air filters. Molekule’s Photo Electrochemical oxidation(PECO) filters works at destroying pollutants at a molecular level.

  •  Between each patient the PECO filters will be turned on high for the recommended 15 minutes to remove the aerosols before a new patient is introduced into the room.  To learn more about Molekule visit their website.  

  •  Hand sanitizer is offered at our front desk and in every treatment room and front desk

  •  If you would like a mask, please ask someone at the front desk, and you will be given a level 1 mask to wear in the waiting room for your safety.

  • Temperatures are taken for all patients as they enter. If you have temperature over 102 Farenheit or 39.4 C, please reschedule your appointment until you feel better.

  •  We have glass sneeze guards’ setup in the front desk and our front desk will wear gloves when exchanging forms and payment with you. These gloves will be replaced between every transaction.

  • Any Patient or Canaan Dental team member that has any symptoms of a cold or flu are not permitted on the premises and are advised to stay at home for the safety of our office.

  •  Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops, have been cleaned and disinfected thoroughly with medical grade disinfectants that kill 99.9% of all harmful bacteria and viruses.

  •  Disposable protective coverings on equipment  and dental tools are disposed of and replaced after each patient visit.

  •  Non-disposable items such as dental tools and instruments are cleaned and sterilized between patients using hospital grade sterilization equipment. Our sterilization equipment is monitored and tested on a regular basis.

  •  All staff involved in patient care use appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, masks, gowns and eyewear when needed. After each patient, disposable gloves and masks are thrown away. Before seeing the next patient, everyone on the treatment team disinfects their hands and puts on a new pair of gloves and mask.

  •  We frequently clean and disinfect the lobby area and reception counter multiple times throughout the day, and are even more diligent today.
