Southern California’s trusted dental services providers prepare to re-open amidst COVID-19

Today, West Coast Dental, the leading provider of adult and children’s dentistry in Southern California, unveils their newest safety protocols in order to re-open in accordance with California’s continued efforts to advance and re-open amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a concerted effort to keep staff, medical professionals, and patients safe and virus-free, West Coast Dental has introduced various safety protocols to allow them to operate, helping their patients, while also doing their part to temper the spread of COVID-19. West Coast Dental is working in accordance with CDC guidelines and alongside the California Dental Association to continue to adapt protocols as new information is released relating to the virus.

Currently, West Coast Dental is continuing to follow ADA, CDA, OSHA and CDC guidelines on cleanliness, including nightly professional cleanings and consistent cleaning of all hard surfaces throughout each business day. Furthermore, West Coast Dental has been flexible and reactive since the beginning of the pandemic, introducing a series of procedures, including thorough screening of all patients (to include screening recent travel, taking temperatures before entry), full protective gear for all staff and medical providers, and providing ample hand sanitizer for use by all patients and staff as needed. Additionally, West Coast Dental is also asking anyone who is sick, and/or with flu-like symptoms to stay home, and has asked that all patients rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide before receiving dental care.

“We care deeply for our staff members, doctors, partners, and our patients,” says West Coast Dental CEO and President Dr Payam Sohrab, “which is why we have elected to keep our doors open so we can assist patients in need of dental care. It is important to be available when our patients need us, but we have to re-open safely and in accordance with CDC guidance.”
