Precautions Implemented for A Safe Environment
by Dr. Kamran Haghighat
Infection control and patient safety have always been our top priority for our periodontal practice.
We are committed to following the infection control guidelines and recommendations made by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We do this for your protection and to make sure that our infection control procedures not only adhere to each agency's recommendations but exceed them for the services we provide our patients.
To further ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we are well-equipped with appropriate PPE, we are practicing social distancing, and we are operating at a reduced capacity to allow ample time between patients for complete room sanitization.
We have also installed the best in class air filtration with the IQAir HealthPro Series featuring HyperHEPA filtration technology for superior airborne particle removal. IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified by an independent third-party lab to effectively filter 99.5% of harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus. Our IQAir extraoral suction air purifier is used right at the patient source to reduce aerosol levels, bacterial colonies, and airborne viral particles to almost zero.
We want you to feel safe and well protected when you visit our office. If you would like to request an appointment, please call us at 503-224-3853. We look forward to seeing you again.
