COVID-19 Protocols & Precautions
DeFabio Dental Design, a Colts Neck dentist, is taking extraordinary safety precautions during this pandemic. Our top priority is the safety and health of our patients and our staff. In our efforts to go above and beyond we have enacted protocols to ensure that our dental practice offers the safest environment for you.
Pre-COVID we took great care to create the cleanest dental practice in NJ. We had already been using a high-quality air filtration system that removes 99.97% of airborne and surface contaminants. We have always been meticulous in our sterilization process.
As we are re-opening we have taken even more measures to ensure the cleanest environment.
Disinfecting Fogger - Hypochlorous Acid is one of the leading disinfectants available. We purchased a high quality disinfecting fogger for the office. This fog is completely safe and it sanitizes 80 times better than bleach.
More about Hypochlorous Acid:
FDA Approved as a no-rinse sanitizer for food
Does not irritate the eyes or skin
No unpleasant odor
Kills 99.9% of bacteria, germs and viruses
We have removed everything from the office that is non-essential to mitigate any contamination.
Our entire staff is outfitted with PPE. New N95 masks, face shields, and full gowns will be used for each patient for the most detailed protective measures.
We are spreading out our appointments. We will only be allowing one patient in the office at a time. We are allocating time between appointments to completely sterilize the entire office for each patient.
COVID-19 Office Protocols
We have implemented some new procedures to create the safest environment for our patients and staff.
Please do not make an appointment or come to the office if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone within the last 14 days that has tested positive for COVID-19. Symptoms include: Cough, Sore Throat, Fever, Chills, Muscle Pain, Trouble Breathing.
Upon arrival for your appointment, we will first take your temperature and ask if you have traveled recently.
Once this intake is complete you will be brought to a treatment room that has been completely sterilized.
We will then have you rinse with a Hydrogen Peroxide solution to kill any germs in your mouth before we begin treatment.
Our staff will provide treatment in full PPE while taking every precaution to ensure a safe environment.
We know that this situation is hard. We are doing everything we can to create the safest and cleanest dental practice in the Colts Neck area. We care deeply about the health and safety of our patients and our staff. We will continue to follow this closely and take every step to make sure that our office is safe for our patients to resume their dental treatments. We look forward to when this is over, but in the meantime know that we strive to be the safest dental practice in New Jersey. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
