Family Dentist Dr. John Tomasheski DDS Discusses Safety at the Dental Office and the Need to Return to Prevent Unexpected Dental Emergencies in Chapel Hill and Apex, NC

Share Article

New Safety Equipment and Protocols at the Dental office include Air Purification Systems, Social Distancing, and Additional Heightened Protocols and make it very safe to go to the dentist. However, silent dental disease continues to be more damaging and complicated to fix if left untreated for too long, even without symptoms.

Avoid Dental Emergencies

Air Purification System increases Safety at the Dental Office

We have been happily serving dental emergencies during the COVID-19 Stay at Home period and now are Re-Opened and committed to you and your family's safety, comfort, and exceptional dental outcomes!

Dr. John Tomasheski of Dorion & Associates Dentistry is now offering over a decade of family dentistry experience in Apex, North Carolina with a complete dedication and joy of treating all ages like family with safe delivery and of the highest quality!

With our country being reportedly the worst hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are now asking, "Is it safe to go to the dentist?" or "Can I see my dental hygienist and get my overdue dental cleaning safely now?"

However, untreated dental disease, such as cavities and periodontal disease, often grows at an increasingly rapid pace if left alone. It is a surprise to most people that something can become so bad, but most people have no symptoms at all, just like the coronavirus.

New infection control recommendations made by the ADA, the CDC and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) must be followed completely to provide the highest safety with COVID-19 for everyone in the office.

The "Waiting Room" has become a "Reception Area" to greet a patient and walk them to their treatment suite immediately.

We have placed many highly efficient HEPA Air Purification Systems with over-capacity for the dental office space throughout the office to filter out coronavirus from the air and clear the space completely up to 5x an hour!

You will likely notice some other changes when it is time for your next dental appointment.

For example:

1. Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

2. We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office and wear a protective mask while not receiving dental care. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

3. You'll be asked to wait in your car until we are ready to seat you when you walk in the door. We will call you to let you know when we are ready for you to come in to the office.

4. Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients and rotation of rooms and extensive cleaning procedures performed.
