Is it Safe to Visit the Dentist During COVID-19?

Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, you may be wondering if it’s safe to visit your local Arvada dentist. As Candelas Dentistry is opened for routine dental care, the health and safety of our community remains front and center of practice. To provide your smile with the care it needs, we’re taking a number of actions to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. Here is a glance of the protocols we’ve adopted to secure safe visits during COVID-19!

Patient & Staff Checks

Prior to beginning work, our staff is carefully screened to ensure they are healthy, have a normal temperature, and aren’t experiencing symptoms that could be caused by COVID-19. We also require patients to take a few moments to fill out our COVID-19 screening questionnaire and have their temperature taken upon stepping into our office. Staff and patients are also respectfully required to wear masks and wash their hands regularly to ensure the safest environment possible.

Socially Distancing Precautions

If possible, we kindly encourage coming alone to your appointment to reduce the number of people in our office. To check in for your appointment, simply give our team a call or text from your car and we’ll let you know when your room is ready to go!

Enhanced Sanitation & Disinfection Measures

At Candelas Dentistry, we have always implemented CDC, OSHA, and ADA standards for the cleanest operatories and office space possible. In addition to these expert requirements, we sanitize and disinfect common, high-touch surfaces at least every hour by using EPA-registered disinfectant designed for healthcare settings.

Peroxide Rinses & PPE to Protect Patients & Staff

Highly effective at combating coronavirus particles, we require patients to rinse their mouths with a hydrogen peroxide solution prior to treatment. 

As dental professionals, we have always maintained utmost health and safety measures by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, surgical masks, and eye-protection when caring for patients. Now, we’re further elevating the protection of our staff and patients with additional protective coverings such as face shields, level 3 surgical masks, and reusable medical gowns that are professionally laundered by a medical linen facility.

Move Forward with Peace of Mind at Candelas Dentistry!

As the world changes around us, Dr. Kim and our compassionate team continue to go above and beyond to ensure your smile and whole body health is placed top of mind. We love our community of Arvada, so we’re committed to keeping our office a safe and flourishing place to be.
