Your Safety & Assurance
Our response to COVID-19 & how we are preparing to reopen in June 2020.
A Huge Thank You!
First of all we just want to say thank you to our patients and everyone for your cooperation and patience as we tried to do our best to take care of everyone. This situation has certainly been different and in our efforts to keep the health and safety of our patients first, we decided it was best to temporarily close our office and limit appointments to emergencies only.
We know this has placed everyone needing routine dental care in a tough spot and it was not an easy decision to make.
Nevertheless, we did not let the situation get the best of us. We are certain The Teeth People will continue to provide the magnificent dental care our patients and community expect from us now and after this has passed, but now in better and even more assuring ways.

Steps We Have Taken
With the addition of extra precautionary measures put in place by the CDC, we are practicing their guidelines and we've took it a step further. Our patients mean everything to us and we truly want to provide not only the best dental care but a safe and clean environment. That being said, below are the actions we've taken to provide an even better dental treatment.
New Generation 4 Stage Suction Filtration System
New to our practice is a next-gen air filtration equipment used during patient treatments. Designed using the latest technology to filter our dust, aerosol, blood and viruses. With this new addition, we are providing the up most and safest dental treatment for you and our team. Below are the four stages of filtration:
Dust Bag Filter - Primary dust filtered our with a pocket-shaped square filter.
Anti-Microbial Filter - Yellow dust, ultrafine dust removal and captures bacteria
Carbon & HEPA Filter - Specifically made for dentistry environments. Removes 99.97% of fine dust with a 40T thick filter with a HEPA H13 grade on one side. The other side is a honeycomb filter containing 80% active carbon chips, aerosol, optimized for odor.
UV-C Lamp - A UV-C 225nm wavelength ultraviolet rays have proven fungal and bacterial sterilization with optic catalyst sterilization.
H13 True HEPA Medical Grade Air Purifier
The most common air purifiers out there are only a H11 grade which capture about 95% of particles but still miss many of the most concerning particles. Our H13 Medical Grade purifier captures 99.9% down to the 0.1 microns. But thats not all, this new purifier will filter out:
Addition of PPE
In addition to our protective equipment already in place, we are now in compliance with the new CDC guidelines for dentistry which includes additional Personal Protective Equipment to better serve our patients.
The CDC states: "DHCP should wear a surgical mask, eye protection (goggles, protective eyewear with solid side shields, or a full-face shield), and a gown or protective clothing during procedures likely to generate splashing or spattering of blood or other body fluids."
There are rules and guidelines we must follow, we are kindly asking the following in order to stay in compliance and protect you for the time being.
