Welcome Back, We Are Officially Open! Walled Lake, MI Dentist Great news! Jacobson Dental Group is now open to all patients to treat all of your dental needs. Our goal, as always, is to provide our patients and our team with a safe, comfortable dental home. Here are some of the things our dental team is doing to ensure your safety: Patient Preventative MeasuresOur office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. Appointment SchedulingAppointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients entering the office at any given time. You will receive additional instructions prior to your appointment to ensure safety and distancing protocols are in place for everyone. Hand HygieneProper handwashing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings. We also are requiring all patients to have their temperature taken and use hand sanitizer upon entry. Personal Protective EquipmentWe possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, face shields, full helmet paprs, gloves, protective eyewear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents. Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and DevicesInstruments and equipment used in your care are all regularly sterilized and disinfected to ensure that your health is never at risk. Items such as surgical instruments and mouth mirrors are always sterilized before each use. Patient rooms are sanitized with top of the line disinfection solution and treated with a sanitation fog method after the patient has had treatment. Patient rooms also have air purifiers to circulate and filter the room air during treatment. Air PurificationWe use multiple HEPA grade air filters throughout the practice to scrub and clean the airmultiple times per hour. During your appointment we also use high evacuation suction to remove aerosols, further reducing the spread of bacteria and viruses. Regular SanitationCommon touchpoints, including seating, workspaces, door handles, railings, and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill viruses. Our office is using digital COVID screening paperwork methods. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office today for more information. We look forward to seeing your smiles.
