COVID-19 Establishsed Safety Protocols

We have always complied with strict OSHA-mandated protocols to maintain a highly sterile environment within our dental practice. These guidelines were created to safeguard against the |spread of severely contagious diseases and are equally effective for preventing the spread of the coronavirus. In response to the current pandemic, we have the following additional safety protocols in place:

  • Employee Health Screening
  • Patient Health Screening
  • Office Social Distancing
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Treatment Area Protection
  • Common Area Sterilization

The safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. The added protections below have been implemented and will remain in practice until we are instructed by the CDC, American Dental Association and NC Dental Board that it is safe to do so. Please be assured that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure your safety.

1. Employees are screened daily for COVID-19 risk factors and those at risk will be required to self-quarantine for a minimum of 14 days prior to returning to work.

2. All employees have their temperatures taken upon arrival and recorded daily.

3. Patients are screened for COVID-19 risk factors and pre-existing conditions when scheduling and upon arrival. If risk factors are present that patient will be required to reschedule. Patient temperatures are taken at check-in as a further screening precaution, and they are required to sign a COVID-19 Treatment Consent Form.

4. To facilitate patient social distancing in the office, patients are asked to wait for their appointments in their vehicles when there are others in the waiting area. After treatment is completed, patients are guided to the check-out desk individually to avoid crowding. Patients are asked to wear masks at all times except while being treated.

5. Common areas (lobby, restrooms, door handles, break rooms, hallways) are cleaned with disinfecting wipes and aerosol spray. Pens and clipboards are wiped after each patient use, and all magazines, books and pamphlets have been removed from lobbies.

6. All employees are utilizing additional layers of personal protective equipment (PPE)

1. Clinical staff is asked to arrive at the office in street clothes before changing into scrubs for the day. Clinical staff will wear clinical jackets, gloves and surgical head covering for all patient interactions

2. Facial protection includes a N-95 or level 3 mask overlaid by a standard surgical mask covered by a face shield

3. Gloves and surgical masks are disposed after each visit and face shields are cleaned with a disinfecting wipe.

4. Patients are asked to pre-rinse for 30 seconds with a 1.5% hydrogen peroxide rinse to decrease the viral and bacterial load prior to treatment

5. Treatment rooms are thoroughly disinfected with wipes and spray following each patients visit including wiping of all ancillary clinical equipment including headlamps, face shields and keyboards

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we adhere to these strict safety protocols!

  • "Dr. Lloyd and her staff are wonderful. I have always hated to go "the dentist" and therefore put off appointments for years! I am very glad that I decided to trust my teeth and care to this office! They have helped to ease my fear and anxiety and get the job done easily and quickly! I already have my next 6 month appointment made and I will look forward to being there."
