COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Naperville Periodontics

To protect our patients and staff, we are following and exceeding the guidelines set forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health, CDC and American Dental Association.  Some of our new protocols include: 

  • Placement of IQAir HealthPro Plus ultrafine HEPA air filtration units throughout the office
  • Sanitization of treatment rooms with UV-C germicidal light following aerosol-generating procedures 
  • Implementation of new suctioning techniques to minimize aerosols generated during dental procedures
  • Spacing of patient appointments to allow extra time for room sanitization
  • Screening of staff and patients for symptoms, temperature and prior contact with COVID-19 individuals
  • Requiring all patients to wear a mask or face covering
  • Requesting patients call or text from their car upon arrival so that we can have them enter the office when the treatment room is available 
  • Additional protective equipment for our staff that includes KN95 masks, face shields, and disposable gowns
  • Reduction of contact time with the front desk by pre-payments over the phone, online forms and verbal updating of medical histories in the treatment room instead of on a tablet
  • Sneeze-guard and droplet barriers have been installed in our reception area
  • Regularly cleaning high touched surfaces including doorknobs, countertops, bathrooms and more

We are very proud of our new office procedures.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Sincerely,
Dr. Cascino and Dr. Pizzurro
