CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

updated 5/7/20

Patients of Maplewood Dental,

I hope this message finds you safe and well. Our team has been working very hard over the last few weeks in preparation for our return to the office on Monday, May 11th. Our team will work very hard to accommodate our patients and get you in as soon as we possibly can. We can’t express our gratitude enough for the understanding and patience you have shown during these uncertain times. I wanted to take this opportunity to keep everyone informed of our progress for our new “Safety and Sterilization Protocols”. Our main priority is for you to feel safe and protected when you visit us for your dental care. Per Governor John Carney Delawareans are to wear face coverings in public settings, so we require you to come to our office with face mask or covering.

Our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8AM to 5PM.

Here are just a few of the extra measures we have taken for your safety:

1.) Surgically Clean Air:

We have invested and installed Surgically Clean Air units for our office.  These units have a combination of HEPA Filter, Carbon Filter and UVC light to cleanse the air we breathe in our office.  These filters are proven to rid the air in our offices of 99.998% of bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.

2.) Integration of Isolite by Zyris into each treatment suite. In conjunction with our current suction, we are now able to eliminate airborne dental aerosols by over 90%.

3.) New Patient Screening measures:

  • Thorough Medical History Reviews
  • Vitals will now include forehead temperature scans and pulse oximetry
  • COVID-19 Pre-Visit screening questionnaires
  • Personalized discussion of your medical history and how it correlates to your systemic health
  • Importance of Oral Hygiene as it relates to your overall well being

4.) Hydrogen Peroxide or Peroxyl rinse prior to any treatment or exam which decreased the loads of pathogens in patients’ mouths. Since coronavirus is vulnerable to oxidation, any mouth rinse containing oxidative agents such as 1% hydrogen peroxide or 0.2% povidone is recommended to reduce the salivary load of oral microbes, including potential coronavirus.

5.) In conjunction with our current Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), our clinical team will also be equipped with the following:

  • Disposable body gowns
  • Full face shields
  • N95 Masks
  • We will also be limiting the number of patients we treat at any given time. We will strictly adhere to the social distancing recommendations set forth both in our waiting room and our treatment areas.

As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have in regards to the safety measures we will be implementing. We encourage you to ask one of our team members for a tour of our sterilization area. We are here to serve you and value any feedback or questions you may have. We will be continually updating you until our return.

Sincerely,

Dr. Steven Wright
Dr. Daniel Luckenbaugh
Dr. Katie Townsend
