At Chapel Hill Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Bilal Saib and team want you to know we’re doing everything possible to ensure your health and safety whenever you spend time with us. Please remember that now more than ever, we’ll continue never to compromise when it comes to protecting your oral and overall health. Every appointment, every visit to your office, we want you to feel comfortable and safe.
Sterilization and Disinfection Protocols
In addition to the already strict and stringent sterilization and disinfection rules we have in place, we’ve also added some extra steps. One of the good things about how our dental office in Chapel Hill is designed is that our treatment rooms are not bays, so this means contamination between rooms is not possible. All of our treatment areas will be cleaned thoroughly and disinfected between patients. During this time, the rooms will receive a 7-minute run of high-flow air filtration to remove any particles in the air. All of these steps have helped us eliminate cross-contamination between patients through surface contact or ambient air in our rooms.
Our instruments, as always, are also highly sterilized and disinfected in between patient appointments. All tools are placed in our autoclave, where they’re thoroughly cleaned with high heat to kill bacteria, viruses, molds, and fungi. All disposable items are removed. We’ll continue to follow all guidelines and current medical infection control standards.
Personal Protective Equipment and Appointments
Our team will continue wearing either a level 3 surgical mask or N95 respirator during all treatment. Our patients have the option of wearing a mask in the waiting area but it is no longer required based on community guidelines for current Covid levels.
No matter what happens in the future, we’re here for you and your family with professional yet compassionate dental care. We care deeply about our Chapel Hill community and your health. If you have any questions or concerns about an upcoming appointment, please feel free to reach out to us online or by phone at 919-933-3388.
