YOUR SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY!
At Bass Lake Dental, Germs don't stand a chance!! We have implemented a rigorous series of disinfection and engineering protocols to ensure that your visit to our clinic is VERY safe. From check-in to check-out and everything in between, your safety is ALWAYS on our mind! We thank you for your confidence in us! Here are a few of the MANY steps we have taken to ensure that your confidence in us is well placed.
Car-Side Check In:
When you arrive, call or text us to let us know you are here. We will then bring you directly to your treatment room for you appointment. This enables us to keep the number of people in the office to a minimum in order to maximize safety for everyone!
Temperature Screening with Hospital-Grade Thermometers:
All staff temperatures are checked and logged daily. All Patient temperatures are checked before every appointment with a highly accurate WelchAllyn thermometer. We have found forehead scanners to be far too inaccurate to be an effective screening tool for Covid-19.
MaxAir Respirators (CAPRs) / Isolation Gowns:
At Bass Lake Dental we take your safety seriously! We use top quality PPE to maximize safety of all Patients and Staff. Our Clinical Staff wear high-tech MaxAir Continuous Air Pressure Respirators (CAPRs). CAPRs represent the highest level of respiratory protection available (far superior to N95/face shield) and are used in facilities around the world where maximum protection is desired. We also wear new isolation gowns for every patient encounter. Laundry facilities were recently installed on-site to ensure safe handling of the high volume of PPE we use. We request all patients wear masks into the office. You will be provided with one if needed.
Cloudburst Disinfection System:
In addition to our already stringent cleaning protocols, we have gone above and beyond CDC recommendations and invested in another layer of safety. In between every patient appointment our treatment rooms are thoroughly fogged with a hospital grade / environmentally friendly disinfectant which is generated on-site. At the end of the day, every day, the entire office is fogged. This Hospital grade disinfectant is many times more bactericidal and virucidal than bleach, but is completely non-toxic and actually gentle enough to be used in wound care and food sanitization. The fogging of our treatment rooms and office in addition to our other stringent cleaning protocols ensures your appointment takes place in an extremely clean and safe environment.
Plexiglass Front Desk Enclosure:
We installed a large plexiglass barrier at the front desk for enhanced safety when checking-out.
