The guideline for dental office health and safety is this – clean and disinfect like every patient is sick. Although disinfecting and cleaning has always been extremely important at our office, we have taken every single extra step and precaution to ensure that our patients are safe and in a sanitized, clean, and safe environment when they come into our office. We’ve even recently incorporated additional office disinfection procedures that are proven to disinfect against COVID-19.

Our Newest Disinfection Procedure: Safe and Nontoxic Hypochlorous
Hypochlorous acid is an effective and natural acid that disinfects areas in as little as 15 seconds. According to experts, it can even clean 300 times better than bleach, without the harmful side effects. It’s safe and is naturally produced in our own white blood cells in our body to help fight against diseases.
Thankfully, we can use hypochlorous acid to disinfect all surfaces in our office – it destroys viruses and is an extremely effective disinfectant against COVID-19, proven to eradicate it from surfaces. We can even use this new acid in our waterlines without any harmful effects on the human body since it is already naturally occurring in our bodies.
