Covid-19 Updates

How the COVID-19 Pandemic has changed our practice

We have put extensive measures in place to ensure the safety and health of our patients and staff in line with the recommendations of the CDC, OSHA, ADA and PA Department of Health, including pre-entry screenings, rigorous disinfection of high-touch surfaces, universal employee masking, and personal protective equipment consisting of both disposable and sanitized non-disposable garments, safety glasses or goggles, high level masks and respirators, face shields, surgical caps and gloves, UV lighting in our HVAC system, and both intraoral and extraoral suction units to reduce aerosols.
