Personal Protective Equipment at Dental Express

It feels really good to just be back taking care of people. There's been pretty drastic and dramatic changes to our safety protocols. Before the patient steps in to the office, they're screened twice, once over the phone and once prior to walking in, actually in their car. They'll be screened immediately before their appointment. Someone will greet them at the door, take their temperature, go through another series of questions. And if we feel that it's safe for them to be treated, then we will have them come in, we'll seat them and proceed with care. We have all sorts of PPE, the most PPE that I've ever worn. The PPE includes gowns, which I have my doctor gown. We have our goggles, face shields, special masks, the N95s. And then I'm also putting a regular cloth mask over my N95s. I kind of get a little hot, but it's fine, we can handle it. But it's safe and we're here to help. Doors are open and we got everything in place to keep it safe.
