In Virginia, dental practices began accepting patients for routine appointments starting on May 1st. But you may be wondering if it’s really safe to see the dentist during COVID-19. How can you be sure that your health is being protected?
In this blog from the office of James A. Burden, DDS & Associates, we’ll discuss just a few of the ways we’re protecting our patients and staff, and ensuring that you can get the dental care you need in Williamsburg, without risking your health.
We have always followed CDC, OSHA, and ADA guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting our tools, operatories, lobby, and common areas of our office. However, we have implemented even more strict regulations and infection control protocols to ensure that we eliminate the risk of COVID-19 spread.
All of our staff members are fully equipped with PPE, which ensures they will not be infected by airborne viruses and other microorganisms. We’re also incorporating other best practices to reduce the risk of virus spread, such as wearing full-body cover-ups and changing uniforms between patients when possible.
We have been open throughout the entire pandemic for emergency dental care, and we now are accepting patients for routine procedures like teeth cleanings. With our extensive virus control protocols, you can trust us to maintain a clean, safe, and healthy environment for you and your family. So don’t wait. Contact us online or call (757) 229-1224 to get the treatment you need in Williamsburg right away.
