As a dental practice and team of healthcare providers, Aurora Hills Dental has always put the health and safety of our patients and employees first by maintaining a clean office, sterile treatment environment, and thoroughly sterilized treatment tools whenever disposable, single-use tools are not an option.
During the pandemic, we have continued to hold our clinic environment to our already high standard of cleanliness, in addition to implementing in-depth sterilization procedures and safety equipment inside our office to reduce the chances for transmission of contagious disease.
Our updated procedures and protocols include more frequent sterilization of high-touch and high-traffic places within our waiting room, mask-wearing according to official recommendations and guidelines, reduced patient traffic, and installing an advanced air purification system designed to remove potential virus-carrying aerosols from the air inside our office.
Should You Still Visit the Dentist During the Pandemic?
Whether you choose to visit public places is a highly personal choice that should be discussed with your healthcare provider and depends on your COVID-19 vaccination status, medical history, and potential risk for developing a serious illness.
However, general and preventive dental care is essential to maintaining your overall health and the strength of your immune system. Oral bacteria and oral-based infections can increase your risk for systemic health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. These illnesses are harmful to your general health and are even associated with more serious conditions from COVID-19.
If you have concerns about your health and the risks associated with spending time in a public location during the pandemic, we strongly encourage you to contact our office. We can work with you and do our best to make accommodations to keep you safe, such as booking early appointments and/or allowing you to check in and wait in your vehicle. We will do everything we can to make it possible for you to continue receiving dental care while reducing your risk of exposure to COVID-19.
