Our Protective Measures Approach
Additional Sanitation Protocol
Covid-19 Opening Update: Office will reopen on May 18th, 2020 for dental visits. If you have an upcoming appointment, please do not call to reschedule. One of our staff will be reaching out to you shortly.
The Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) Executive Committee recommends that dental offices in Massachusetts remain closed except for emergency care through May 18. This decision was made based on guidance from the CDC, ADA, Massachusetts DPH, and Governor Baker’s administration.
The health and well-being of our patients will always be our highest priority.
Weston Dental Specialists Group is following the infection control recommendations made by:
American Dental Association (ADA)
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Department of Public Health (DPH)
We have implemented the following protective measures:
Our waiting room has been cleared of magazines, toys, and some furniture to reduce clutter, facilitate disinfection operations, and to comply with social distancing guidelines. Plexiglass barriers at the front desk counter and new medical-grade air purification units have been installed. Air filters with UV lights have been added to the ventilation system.
HOCL (Hypochlorous Acid) will be used to sanitize the office for maximum cleaning, disinfection, and aeration of each operatory. Each treatment room is equipped with air purification units containing medical grade H13 HEPA filters to eliminate any pathogens (viruses and bacteria) from the environment. High-speed suction, rubber dams, and disposable kits for nitrous oxide delivery will be used to minimize exposure and cross-contamination.
Protocols developed include:
- Pre-treatment screening-phone calls
- Remote check-in
- Touchless thermometers
- Hand sanitizing/masks/gloves
- Hydrogen peroxide rinses
- Remote check-out
All staff members will wear the appropriate Personal Protection Equipment in accordance with the job description and type of intervention to be performed. All staff will be monitored on a daily basis for possible symptoms or exposure.
As always, we will continue to provide emergency care as needed. Please call the office at (781) 894-0347 for dental emergencies, advice, or concerns. We will keep you informed as we learn more.
Please stay safe and healthy!
