Dr. Tony Narlis, Dr. Johanna Narlis, and all of our staff have always taken infection control very seriously, and therefore follow all CDC recommendations.
Masks: Patients are no longer required to wear masks in the office. Staff, as always, will be utilizing full personal protective eqipment during all dental procedures.
Infection Control: At our office, we observe the highest possible degree of safety and cleanliness to control the spread of illnesses and infections. In addition to the added personal protection equipment and strict disinfection protocols, we are also aware that aerosols containing contaminates can suspend in the air for an extended period of time. To mitigate this, we have installed ADS Extraoral Dental Suction Systems in each treatment room. These units use a HEPA Filtration System: 3 Layers of HEPA filtration, stopping virus and germs with 99.995% efficacy, and a UV light: a medical grade UV Light Disinfectant System that captures and kills harmful particles during aerosol generating dental procedures, so that the air that you’re breathing in our dental treatment room is as safe as possible. When in use, the unit arm will be placed approximately 6-8” from your mouth and it makes a light noise, similar to a white noise machine.
