South Windsor, CT Dentist 860-644-2136
We are happy to be open again for your needed dental care! Please be patient as we do the best we can to reschedule previous appointments. We are also adjusting the current schedule to allow more time to properly disinfect the treatment rooms in between patients. You may therefore receive a call from us to alter existing appointment times.
We hope you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot recently and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. As a member of your local community, we care deeply about the health and the well being of our patients, families and our team. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office strictly follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations. We have always used CDC and OSHA-mandated cleaning and disinfection protocols for all surfaces in our office and treatment rooms. We use a bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal and tuberculocidal disinfectant recommended for dental operatories, hospital surgical rooms, anesthesia machines and respiratory therapy equipment.
We at Rubin Family Dentistry & Associates are even going above and beyond these strict requirements and have purchased multiple devices to aid in eliminating aerosols created during dental procedures and are controlled with hospital grade HEPA filters and UV lighting technology.
We have made additional changes to help protect our patients and staff. Here are some examples:
All of our staff and doctors are also screened carefully daily, and have been specially trained with extra precautions above and beyond what is required to minimize any risks to our family of patients and team members. Additionally, all providers and assistants have been professionally fit-checked with N95 masks and are safely prepared for any aerosol producing procedures.
Rest assured, great time and care went into creating these protocols. We ask for your cooperation by following these guidelines to help our practice and community. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time. All of us here at Rubin Family Dentistry & Associates have mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, husbands and wives and other family members whose well-being we care about but we are just as concerned about our family of patients and our community. I know that in the long term, this will make us stronger and safer, but in the mean time we have to implement these safety protocols for everyone’s health and safety. We will give you our promise to do everything in our control to maintain a positive, safe environment for all to enjoy.
If you are over the age of 60 or if you have any underlying medical conditions that may put you at higher risk of complications if coronavirus is contracted, please call our office at least one day prior to your appointment to discuss the necessity of your treatment and to determine if we recommend your appointment should be delayed further.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
