Our Safety Protocols

Safety Protocols

Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission

Many things have changed due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus, but our commitment to your safety has not. Infection control has always been something of utmost importance here at Elite Family Dental Care. We’d like to share with you some of the protocol and equipment we use in this regard, based upon recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Infection control protocols
  • IQAir Dental Air Filtration System – This air purifier system will filter the smallest (0.003 microns in diameter) and most harmful airborne particles.
  • Hospital level disinfection using CaviCide on all our surfaces.
  • Highest sterilization protocols for all equipment and instruments using Midmark UltraClave sterilizers.
  • Proper PPE for all of our staff members including respirators, masks, gloves, face shields, disposable gowns, head coverings.
  • Screening – We will not schedule a patient who exhibits any signs of coronavirus, flu, or a cold. No staff member will come to work if they exhibit any of those symptoms and all staff have their temperature taken daily.
  • Strict mask-on policy for all persons entering our practice.
  • Sanitizing stations for patient and staff use. You will be provided with hand sanitizer, gloves and a mask. Your temperature will be checked, and you will be asked the screening questions.
  • Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, coffee, water and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Our experienced dentists help patients enhance their smiles by offering the latest in cosmetic treatments including Zoom! teeth whitening, Invisalign, and natural-looking dental implants.

Restorative Dentistry
Restorative treatments preserve your natural teeth wherever possible. Whether it be tooth-colored fillings, same-day crowns (made in our onsite dental lab), or natural-looking dental implants – our team will restore your smile to health and beauty by leveraging the recent advancements in dental technologies.

Dental Implants
As the premium option for replacing missing teeth, dental implants not only improve the appearance of your smile, they also improve your oral and overall health. Matching your natural teeth in color, size and shape, dental implants help restore your bite force, preserve your jawbone, and improve your confidence.

Invisalign offers discretion, comfort, and freedom to enjoy your favorite foods – all while getting a perfectly aligned smile. Our dentists have years of specialized experience in using these clear aligners to create beautiful, brilliant smiles.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Painless, professional-grade teeth whitening gives patients a megawatt smile – in just a single visit. Safer and more effective than store-bought whitening kits, Zoom! teeth whitening can bring out the best in your smile in just about an hour.

Periodontal Disease
Gum disease has the potential to lead to serious health problems. Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment for periodontal disease are essential to maintaining good oral health – and overall health.

CEREC Crowns
CEREC crowns – also known as same-day crowns – are available at Elite Family Dental Care. Using computer assisted design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM), your permanent crown can be made while you wait, eliminating the need for multiple visits to restore a damaged tooth.

Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are included in our preventative dental care. At your bi-annual checkup, you will be screened for any warning signs. Our digital imaging technologies also allow for the identification of symptoms beneath the surface of the mouth, cheeks, and gums.

Emergency Dentistry
Emergency dental services are available for patients who experience a loose crown, knocked-out tooth, or trauma to the teeth and jaws.
