Our Practice Safety Protocols

Behind the Scenes Preparation at Dental TLC

  • The Dental TLC team is meeting daily to assess our preparedness and response.  We still feel that we can continue to safely care for our patients.
  • We are doubling down on our efforts to clean and sanitize our office. For example, we have purchased additional cleaning supplies for the administration areas to spray and sanitize all surfaces. We are taking extra care to clean handrails, doorknobs, bathrooms, chair backs, and tables multiple times a day. Our cleaning company is taking extra precautions in the evenings to do the same. We are working with vendors to ensure a continued supply of cleaning products and protective equipment for employees. We will continue to do this as an additional precaution to prioritize the health and wellness of our patients, staff and community.
  • Our staff has always followed and will continue to follow the CDC’s Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings—2003
  • All of our team members are wearing appropriate PPE.
  • We are now REQUIRING all patients to sanitize their hands with hand sanitizer at check-in and check-out.
  • Our waiting room is not open until further notice – Click here to view the Protocols For In Office Visits During Covid-19
