Crowd with Masks

Safety is our #1 Priority

Our community has been through a lot in the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal routines. 

 

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same at Leung Dental: our commitment to your safety.

 

Leung Dental prioritizes your health even before you step in through the door.

We prioritize your health at every step of the way.

 

We're doing our best to keep you, your family, and our staff safe.

Infection Control

Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits in the past. Our infection control processes are made so that you receive safe and comfortable care at Leung Dental. 

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the California Dental Association, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We closely follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings and guidance issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

  

Clean Air Circulation for those pesky aerosolized particles:

  • HEPA Air Filters are installed all throughout the office

  • Extra-Oral Aerosol Evacuation Systems are installed in every patient treatment room.

  • Open windows and fans facilitate clean air circulation

  • All patient rooms surfaces are wiped down fully after every patient with disinfecting wipes (effectively kills all viruses including the Coronavirus).

  • Plastic barriers are placed where appropriate.

  • All instruments are sterilized.

  • The entire office is cleaned daily and the waiting area is wiped down with disinfectant wipes throughout the day.

  • Everyone washes their hands regularly after each patient with antibacterial soap.

  • Masks must always be worn by all persons for the entire visit. We will have you remove your mask for your procedure only.

  • Health Screenings: Before appointments, we screen all patients to ask if they have had a fever, cough, sore throat, chills, aches or runny nose in the last two weeks. If so, we will reschedule them until they’ve been symptom-free for 14 consecutive days. 

    • Every staff member, dentist, and patient will have their temperature checked upon entering the clinic. Anyone with an elevated temperature will be sent home and only be invited back to the clinic when they are symptom free and have had a normal temperature for two weeks.

You can rest assured we are following all the appropriate guidelines regarding cleanliness and disinfection of our entire office and instruments. We do ask if you are ill to please reschedule your appointment and follow your doctor's orders. Please keep us updated of any diagnosis you have so we can protect our staff and other patients.

Thank you for understanding and we assure you we are doing everything we can to make sure our office is safe for all.
