Our Response to COVID-19

Infection control has always been a top priority for Cedarburg Family Dentistry. We want to share additional infection control procedures we have put in place during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). 

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. 

For example:

  • Each treatment room has been outfitted with a hospital grade, extra oral suction unit with 3 stage HEPA filtration. These units provide up to a 99.5% reduction in aerosols created by our dental equipment.  Because the COVID-19 virus is readily transmitted through water and respiratory droplets (cough or sneeze), these machines will greatly reduce any contamination that may have normally occurred.  The air in each treatment room is cleaned and completely exchanged every 2-3 minutes, depending upon the size of the room.

  • Professional grade HEPA air filtration units have been placed throughout the office to ensure a healthy breathing environment.

  • PPE for all staff will include FDA approved KN95 respirators and face shields.

  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed to protect and promote social distancing.

  • Temperature screening using touchless thermometers and a hydrogen peroxide rinse will be done prior to any treatment. This helps to decrease the amount of germs and viruses in the mouth.

Our office will ask you screening questions prior to your appointment. Please practice social distancing and courtesy by wearing a mask, only bringing family members that have appointments into the office and waiting in your car, rather than the waiting room. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early for your appointment unless otherwise advised. 

Cedarburg Family Dentistry will reserve the right to reschedule your appointment if you, or someone with you (spouse, children etc.) present symptoms upon arrival to the office.
