COVID-19 Policies & Practices

Dentist Open During the Coronavirus in Prairie Village, Leawood, & Overland Park KS

Patient Safety

Our community has been through a lot over the last couple of years, and now that we have resumed our normal habits and routines, I would like to share with you our office protocols and guidelines for your visits. We were given permission by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to return to our office to provide dental care on Monday, May 4th, 2020. We continue to take measures to assure that your visit will remain as safe and comfortable as it has been in the past.

Our office has implemented the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. This product features HyperHEPA filtration technology for superior airborne particle removal. Independent third party laboratory testing finds this product removes ultrafine particles that are 10 times smaller than a virus.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the ADA, CDC, OSHA. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We are incorporating a hospital-grade disinfectant throughout our treatment rooms, along with doing weekly testing to our sterilization machines to ensure all bacteria spores are killed.
