Divine Expressions Family Dentistry Proud to be Open with COVID-19 Precautions
During these hard times brought by the pandemic dental issues don’t stop or disappear just because patients can’t go to the dentist. The team at Divine Expressions Family Dentistry have reopened their doors to serve the Madison, AL area with professional disinfection measures that are government-approved and state-of-the-art.
Since Divine Expressions closed on March 18th, 2020, they’ve had time to install any necessary additions to keep patients safe from coronavirus. The team apologizes for the inconvenience caused by the pandemic; however, they’ve used this time wisely to create a clean, ideal environment so patients can sit in the dentist’s chair without any worries.
Divine Expressions is happy to announce that they have been open for service since May 11th, 2020. As long as Governor Ivy or the State Board of Dental Examiners do not impose additional quarantine measures, the practice will stay open through the end of the year.
Sterilized For Protection
Top-rated dentist Dr. Laurentis Barnett knows that the coronavirus is a real threat to everyone’s safety, but so are dental issues when left untreated. So for everyone’s safety, they’ve installed many state-of-the-art devices to keep their offices clean and 100% virus-free.
For example, they’ve installed an air purification system with a UV light, so all impurities in the air that might be carrying the virus or any bacteria will be eliminated. Additionally, their air conditioning system cleans the air from the outside through its multi-stage filtration process. While they still require the use of face masks and other personal protective equipment, patients can rest assured that the air inside the offices is clean and germ-free.
To avoid transmission from touching surfaces, they’ve also installed touchless sink faucets in all of their restrooms. Social distancing will still be in effect in all areas of the office, and sanitizing with alcohol and other hand sanitizers is still strongly recommended.
Playing Their Part
Since the team is trying to minimize face-to-face contact as much as possible, the reception area will be closed. Patients can call or text ahead so the team can prepare for patients’ arrival, and only a single patient is allowed in the dentist’s office at all times. They ask that other visitors wait outside or stay at home if possible.
At the door, someone from the team will check each patient’s temperature with an infrared thermometer. If patients don’t have a face mask, the team will provide one, as they require them inside the office at all times. The team will also give patients an anti-viral mouth rinse when they initially sit in the dentist’s chair. Scheduling any future treatments will be done in the same room, as well as processing payments.
At Divine Expressions, Safety is The Primary Concern
The team at Divine Expressions remains committed to the promise of providing heart-felt and virtually painless dental care. The new, modern sanitation equipment is checked around the clock to ensure that a patient’s visit will be as anxiety-free as possible. All personnel is required to wear a mask in combination with other PPE.
