Safety COVID-19 – Control and Prevention Tips
Use ADA guidelines and healthy practices to protect yourself when visiting a dentist. Many dental and orthodontic offices are using air purifiers. At Dr, Jacquie Smiles, we use HEPA medical clinical-grade air purifiers to improve the quality of the indoor air for our patients and our staff. These medical-grade air purifiers remove chemicals, toxins, germs, odors, and may eliminate airborne viruses, to help reduce the spread of illness.
Be healthy and practice all safety Covid-19 rules. Clean and disinfect. Practice 6-feet social distancing rules. Use cafes that offer pick-up and delivery services.
Call us if you have any questions about your dental care and whether you should come in for an appointment or wait until later. If we can’t see you during an emergency, try an urgent care center.
