Patient Care during the COVID-19 Pandemic Columbus, OH
Trillium Dental family,
The health and wellness of our patients will always be our number one priority. In light of the global pandemic, we want to reassure you that our office is doing everything we can to make your dental visit as safe as possible.
All providers in the office wear personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times that includes a surgical gown, a Level 3 mask, a face shield, and a scrub cap. Our office is proudly vaccinated! JADE air purifiers that employ Medical Grade Air Systems are installed in each operatory to circulate Surgically Clean Air. Surgically Clean Air's medical grade purifiers use multi-stage air purifying technologies that work together to clean, purify and re-energize the indoor air. The six (6) stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), gases, mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants that are found in inside workspaces. The negative ion generator makes indoor feel more pure, clean and energized to help combat fatigue. For an air purifier to deliver its benefits throughout the indoor space it needs to move large volumes of air through its filtration system effectively without impacting those people that are closest to it or being too loud.
To screen patients before every appointment, COVID-19 screening forms are to be completed by patients when confirming the appointment, as well as before entering the office on the day of the appointment. To minimize contact when arriving at our office, we will ask you to wait outside our suite doors and call our front desk to be checked in. One of our hygienists will bring you inside and measure your temperature, blood pressure, and oxygen levels before being seating you. All appointment times are extended in order to allow for these precautions.
If you or a member of your household is experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you are planning to travel to an area with high infection rates, please notify our office immediately so that we can reschedule your appointment.
Feel free to contact us via phone call or email with any questions about our response to the COVID-19 crisis. We hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
