The Clear Fork Healthy Dental Care Re-Opening policies:

1. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment): We have ample PPE as part of our every day care. Masks must be worn into our office, as stated by the CDC, and then can be taken  off once in the patients' own operatory area.

2. Filtration: We have overabundance of filtration. 

  a. HEPA (*1)

  b. UV (*2)

  c. Ozone (*3)

 

3. Safety Protocols are  in place as we have had to treat emergencies and various essential procedures on a limited basis since the beginning of the COVID "shut down:" Always within guidelines of the TSBDE (Texas State Board of Dental Examiners) as well as the Texas American Dental Association.

4. We are spacing out appointment times as needed to make sure that we have ample time to properly clean and disinfect for covid-19. Please be patient with staff with this new process. 


         These are the  Protective protocols that our office is using that are stated above...

 

*1- HEPA- Stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air- Is a designation used to describe filters that are able to trap are able to trap 99.97 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns. The COVID-19 virus is approximately 0.125 Micron, but that's in an isolated form where they typically can't survive long enough. HEPA air purifiers WILL effectively capture the microbes contained within the aerosol particles which are much larger than 0.3 microns.

 

*2- UV- Is a known disinfectant for air, water and surfaces that can help to mitigate the risk of acquiring an infection in contact with COVID- 19 virus. UV here refers to HVC light energy (200-280nm light) in the germicidal range. (It is not the same as the UVA and UVB used in tanning beds or sunlight exposure.) UVC light has been used extensively for more than 40 years. All the air drawn through the HEPA filter is exposed to the germicidal UVC light. 

 

*3 OZONE- Will inactivate all viruses including COVID-19. It will kill bacteria, virus, and fungi.
