COVID -19

We are happy to announce that we are welcoming patients back for care at Permalla Dental. We thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times.

The safety and health of our patients and team members has always been our top priority. We did our due diligence to educate ourselves with all the possible measures that can be incorporated into our office protocols. We are holding ourselves up to an elevated standard of care beyond local, state, and federal guidelines and requirements. 

Please note that as a result, we have updated some of our daily procedures. You will still receive the same great service from our dedicated team members, as each of us eagerly look forward to welcoming you.

NEW OFFICE PROTOCOLS

We ask that our patients fill out the following Pre-Screening form prior to their appointment as part of our new COVID protocol. Please know that a similar form will be requested to be filled when you arrive at the office for your appointment. We hope you understand the redundancy, as it is important to monitor any symptoms to ensure safety of all.

We continue to observe the following high standards to ensure that Permalla Dental Care is a safe place to be for our patients and staff:

  • Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and counter-tops, have been cleaned and disinfected thoroughly with medical grade disinfectants that kill 99.9% of all harmful bacteria and viruses.

  • Disposable protective coverings on equipment are disposed of and replaced after each patient visit. Disposable dental tools and needles are always disposed of and never reused.

  • Non-disposable items such as dental tools and instruments are cleaned and sterilized between patients using hospital grade sterilization equipment. Our sterilization equipment is monitored and tested on a regular basis.

ADDITIONAL SAFEGUARDS 

On top of our daily safeguards, we also invest to protect your health and well-being with proper “Personal Protective Equipment” (PPE) and the following measures

WHAT WE ASK FROM OUR PATIENTS

  • If you are sick, running a fever, coughing or not feeling well, please reschedule your appointment and do not enter the office. We are happy to reschedule your appointment at no charge and we thank you for considering the health of others.

  • If you are healthy and you come for your regular appointment, please use a tissue when coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose, throw the tissue away, and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water afterwards. Using hand sanitizer of 60% alcohol concentration is also acceptable for washing hands.  We offer hand sanitizer at the front desk and in every operatory!

  • If you have traveled to any areas outside of U.S. within two weeks of your scheduled appointment, please contact our office and reschedule.
