Infection Control Protocols

Your safety is our top priority.

While many things have changed, our commitment to your safety and wellbeing has remained that same.

 Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Alameda County Department of Public Health.  We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings of guidance that may be issued.  

 We have made improvements to the office in order to better protect our patients and staff.

 We have added VIDASHIELD to each of our treatment rooms. VIDASHIELD is a Fast, Continuous, UV-C Air Purification System that kills bacteria and removes particles, purifying the air four times per hour. (The UV light is covered, so you are not exposed to it.).   It combines an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light.             Please watch the YouTube VIDASHIELD Product Video. We are excited about adding this impressive technology to our practice for your protection and wellbeing.

You will also notice the following changes:

  • Our reception area is now open. Please enter our office via the front door.
  • While masking is no longer required, it is recommended as we are a health care office.
  • You will notice physical changes to our office as well. Plexiglass barriers are still present in the front office. Magazines and children's toys have been removed because they are difficult to clean.  You are welcomed to use our guest Wi-Fi for your devices. (DrHeidi's Guest Wi-Fi). (Password: pearlywhites)
  • You will notice our staff wearing continuing to wear PPE (personal protective equipment) including gowns, gloves, goggles, masks and face shields. 

We thank you for your understanding.

We are happy to answer any questions you have about the steps we are taking to keep every patient and staff member safe.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
