COVID-19 Updates

Updated June 15, 2020

Dr. Michelle Hedgecock, DDS and her team are taking all necessary precautions to keep you safe, and then some! What are we doing? See below:

  • REME Halo in- duct air purifiers installed in the HVAC units.  This is effective against bacteria, viruses, molds and dust
  • Each treatment room is outfitted with a Medify medical grade filtration air purifier
  • Reduction of aerosols during dental procedures that require the high speed handpiece utilizing the IsoDry system or the rubber dam when possible, use of high volume evacuator at all times
  • Use of high volume evacuator (HVE suction) when cavitron use is required for cleanings in order to minimize aerosol production
  • Fogging of entire office at the end of each day with hypochlorous acid, treatment rooms treated throughout the day
  • Pre-treatment rinse with Peroxyl mouth rinse to minimize pathogen levels in the oral cavity
  • Empty waiting room policy.  Patients will call when they arrive and wait in their car until we call or text them when we are able to take them directly to their treatment room to avoid any contact with other patients
  • Upon arrival patients will be screened, have their temperature taken, and be given hand sanitizer and an alcohol wipe for their phone
  • Manage patient flow in a way that will maintain social distancing for patients
  • Staff will follow CDC guidelines for personal protective equipment
  • Door handles and countertops will be disinfected throughout the day
