We hope you and your family are in good health. We’ve all been through a lot over the last several
months and continue to meet new challenges. Though many things may have changed, our
commitment to your safety remains the same.
Dr. Luzania attended UC, San Francisco School of Dentistry from 1984-1988, during the AIDS epidemic, so strict infection control practices have been top priority since his earliest days of training. Infection control continues to be a priority for his practice and you may notice this during your visit to the office.
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). We check these agencies’ websites daily to help keep us up to date on any new rulings or guidelines that may be issued.
You may see some changes at your next visit. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.
Our office hours have changed. We are now open Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We now require that anyone entering the office must wear a face covering or mask. After you enter we will check your temperature. Any patients with a temperature over 100.0 will not be able to be seen for their visit, but can be rescheduled for a later date.
We are trying our best to keep the number of people in our office to a minimum, so we ask that you please limit the number of family members present.
You'll be asked some screening questions when you visit the office. We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use. You will also find some located in other places in the office for you to use as needed.
You may notice that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, brochures, children toys, and so forth, as those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Appointments will be made to allow for social distancing between patients. This may result in fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
The treatment rooms have been enclosed to prevent any contaminants from entering the office HVAC system. Our team changes PPE between patients to prevent the chance of cross-contamination.
Used PPE is placed in our “UV room” for disinfection before it is donned again. Each treatment room is treated with ultraviolet light prior to disinfection by our team. The air in each treatment room is constantly being filtered via multi-level HEPA air filters and UV light.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you and every patient safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 559-638-1777.
