Smile Dental Center's Hygienists Happy to Return to Work
Date:7/2/2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic resulted in the temporary closure of many businesses, including dental offices for non-emergency work. In conjunction with the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Governor Lamont released reopening guidelines for Connecticut dental practices in mid-May.

Due to safety concerns, the announcement sparked hesitancy among some hygienists, who protested their practices resuming non-essential dental services.

Located in Shelton, Connecticut, Smile Dental Center took all necessary steps to guarantee their office was fully prepared for staff to return to a safe and clean atmosphere.

Before doors reopened on June 8th, new sanitation equipment was installed and clearly outlined protocols were implemented to ensure the safety of both staff and patients. As a result, their hygienists were comfortable and happy to come back to a newly improved office.

Dr. Bruce Sofferman, DDS, Managing Partner at Smile Dental Center says that despite the current challenges, his dental practice remains committed to overall health and wellness.

“It has always been our top priority to provide quality dental care in the safest environment possible, with the highest standards of cleanliness in place. We take great pride in treating both patients and staff like members of our own family.”

In the waiting room, a state-of-the-art filtration system has been installed to purify and recycle the air every 12 minutes. In addition, each exam room is now equipped with a new Extraoral Aerosol Suction Unit, which removes even the smallest aerosol particles that can be generated while treating patients.

“I feel so safe and comfortable. More importantly, our patients continue to feel like family and are comforted by the installation of new aerosol machines in the exam rooms,” says Sue, Licensed Dental Hygienist at Smile Dental Center.

In addition to new sterilization equipment and top-notch infection control techniques, Smile Dental Center has introduced new safety protocols for patients and staff entering the office:

  • Pre-appointment / entry screening questions
  • Temperature checks for patients and staff
  • Face masks required for patients and staff
  • Limited number of persons in the office
  • Hand sanitizer & disinfecting wipes made available

“Smile Dental Center was 100% prepared to safely reopen with proper PPE, new sanitation guidelines and advanced technology to clean the air. My patients are excited to see how hard we’ve worked to create a clean and safe environment!” says Sarah, Licensed Dental Hygienist at Smile Dental Center.

Smile Dental Center has proudly served Connecticut families for over 35 years. Book an appointment today!
