With this email, we are pleased to announce that your dentist is officially re-opening for business. This is a soft opening as we ramp up our available treatments. If you have a scheduled appointment, we may still be contacting you to make adjustments to accommodate new disinfection protocols. Thank you for your continued understanding.
During the closure, our office has undergone a period of incredible transformation. We are opening because we can say with the highest level of confidence that we are ready. Protecting the health of our patients is what drives us every day and is what has pushed us to attain the highest levels of infection control for your safety as well as for our staff's safety. Here are the changes we have made:
YOUR TREATMENT BEGINS IN A STERILE ENVIRONMENT
UV-C sterilization is science-backed technology that is typically only found within hospital surgical operating rooms. The UV-C wavelength has been proven to rapidly disable the RNA of viruses, bacteria, and molds. With UV-C lighting fixtures installed in every opertory, your dental treatment now begins with a sterile environment.
MEDICAL GRADE AIR
PURIFICATION, 12x PER HOUR
Meet our family of air purifiers. With a medical filtration rating of H13 HEPA, the office air is scrubbed down to 0.1-microns, smaller than virus-sized particles. Our units combine to exchange the volume of air throughout the office 12 times per hour.
90% ORAL AEROSOL REDUCTION
We have upgraded our suction handpieces for improved mitigation of aerosols and fluids.
NEARLY A SPACESUIT
We have all the latest and greatest PPE. There is a still a warm & caring person under there.
ONE-ON-ONE WITH DR. MARTINEZ
Many of you are already utilizing our Virtual Consultations page to manage your oral health remotely. Although we are open, we plan to continue this service for existing patients and new patients to engage us from the comfort of their homes.
ONLINE PATIENT PORTAL
REDUCING CONTACT - INCREASING ACCESS
We are converting our paper records to an encrypted, HIPAA-compliant, digital platform. Also live is our online patient portal, allowing patients to access their family file, pay bills, view scheduled appointments, and more.
TRAINING BY FIELD EXPERTS
Our team has been back to work for the last three weeks, performing hands-on training with local physicians, surgeons, and infection control experts on the latest protocols and standards of care.
AND COMING SOON
TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNEA
Our office is expanding its services to be your provider for airway issues commonly associated with Sleep Apnea. We look forward to making this announcement soon.
We are so excited to be back doing what we love and seeing your smiling faces again! We look forward to keeping you healthy and happy and can't wait to see you in our office soon!
