Dr. Gianni Franceschi and his dental team are dedicated to the health and safety of patients at all times. While continuing to meet traditional CDC & OSHA requirements, we will also be implementing new, additional safety protocols.
Dr. Franceschi has implemented new patient check-in procedures as an important part of minimizing contact for proper social distancing and to allow time between patients to disinfect the office and operatories. If you have questions about these changes or what to expect when coming in for your dental appointment please feel free to contact our office directly. Before your appointment, we will require all patients to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire and body temperature check. Masks also must be worn in our office lobby.
We ask that if you are sick or have been exposed to the coronavirus that you call our office to reschedule your appointment. If you have recently traveled please wait at least 14 days after returning to visit our office. These rules remain in place to protect all patients and staff.
In-Office Health and Safety Precautions
In our office, we will have multiple precautions for the health of our patients and team, including:
- Plexiglass barriers
- Oral antiseptic rinse
- Disinfectant on all surfaces in rooms after every patient
- Using a cold fogger disinfectant machine after each patient to get rid of dangerous bacteria, viruses (including COVID-19), and germs in the air.
- Extra-oral devices to reduce aerosols in the air
N95 respirators, face shields, and other PPE are worn by clinical staff. We are screening team members each day as they enter the practice and following all infectious protocols to prevent exposure. Our office is committed to maintaining the highest standard of infection control, sanitization, and accessibility to PPE’s
