"OPTIM has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on hard non-porous surfaces and non-invasive medical devices. This product can therefore be used against COVID-19 when used in accordance with the directions for use against Poliovirus on hard, non-porous surfaces, and non-invasive medical devices." -Manufacturers website
You may be wondering how to get this product. We just checked last week and it too is on backorder.
Here, this video is a quick study proving how much “safer” this disinfectant cleans over the alcohol-based ones.
In general, it is not safe to go see the dentist during a pandemic where the virus is airborne and affects one's upper respiratory tract like corona viruses. However, if your dentist has additional equipment meant to protect all humans from such toxic aerosols, then that office may have a cleaner environment than your own household.
Here are some of the technologies and products that our clinic has invested in to ensure the utmost safety of our patients. ... See MoreSee Less
It's an airborne virus. Yikes for your idiot patients.
Do you take CIgna
Are you still doing non-emergency dentistry even when the CDC, ADA, most/if not all dental associations say only emergency procedures should be done only alleviate possibility of people going to ER for dental?
El virus no está en el aire paren de decir eso
The virus IS NOT AIRBORNE!!!!!!

Wish I was there to get my next procedure done, best care anywhere!! Great time to recover!!
Suddenly dentists all over are concerned about aerosols.
I find it funny how current events steer someone's actions.
By that I mean, there are now dentists shaming other dentists for being open during this outbreak. While some dental offices stay open to treat essential or emergency situations (like we are currently), other dentists are closed because of the spread of "aerosols created in dental offices."
What they are referring to is the plume of "stuff" coming from the dental drills when drilling on teeth and ultrasonic scalers while cleaning.
I agree with this. The dental office IS a haven for noxious, toxic air which everyone in the office, patients and employees alike, breathe into their lungs, further toxifying them.
Because of recent news that COVID-19 is highly contagious and is found more in the air, than on surfaces, it only make sense for people to be concerned when going to the dental office.
This is why I am shocked. THIS IS NOT NEW NEWS.
Even BEFORE this global pandemic, ALL dental offices had dangerous aerosols floating in the air and entering peoples' lungs.
It is the specially-trained biological or holistic dentists that got it right from the start. You see, these dentists invest in extra equipment to clean the junk (like mercury vapor from replacing mercury amalgam fillings) coming out of the patients' mouths.
These pictures which I just took this weekend while cleaning my son's teeth show the great lengths we take to make sure our staff and patients are kept safe.
Now, since the public typically does not ask or knows about such extra precautions, they blindly enter an environment that is worse than not going at all. ... See MoreSee Less
Many people have taken the bold step of staying home. Be it for 14 days or more, being isolated from the “outside” word is the smartest idea to avoid social contacts and the coronavirus itself. Congratulations! You made the right decision. But are you starting to feel bored and unproductive?
To cure the stay at home blues, I have compiled a list of items below that you could be doing starting today.
For most of you, yoga is nothing new. However, instead of the usual travel to the yoga class, try rolling out your yoga mat at home. There are countless number of yoga classes online and on apps. YouTube has thousands of yoga videos to follow.
Fasting has long been known to have major health benefits. If it is detoxing the gunk in your body or detoxing the emotional patterns in your brain, fasting is something people can and should do while they are in the comforts of their own home.
Like fasting, shocking your normal bodily patterns by changing your diet is a viable way to improve one’s health, especially if you are in a single, controlled environment. Purchase all the groceries you need for one week and consider limiting the diary, gluten, sugar, or meat in your shopping cart. By saying you can ONLY eat what you purchased eliminates the temptation to “break” the diet.
As a dentist, I have recommended dental treatments for over 20 years. One excuse that many of my patients have used (and I’m not picking on you!) is that they do not have the time. I would hear one or all of the following, “I have a trip coming up. I have kids to look after, or I can’t take that much time away from work.” Needless to say, this is not something you have to worry about when you self-quarantine.
To be honest, now is the BEST time to get your NEEDED dental work done. If it is to recover from wisdom teeth removal, to heal from an invasive tooth extraction, or to simply repair that broken tooth, getting your procedure done now will only make your quarantine more productive.
PS.. Need more reasons to schedule your appointment? If you call us today, mention this post and get 20% off your treatment (payment required at scheduling). PPS. Rest assured. Our office has gone to great lengths to disinfect our office from the coronavirus. Your safety and satisfaction is our top priority. ... See MoreSee Less
Around the country, many dental offices are closed for "non-essential" dental procedures.
But what does "non-essential" mean?
According to this chart given by a national dental group, the following are "non-essential":
1. Small cavities 2. Routine cleanings 3. Orthodontics 4. Wisdom teeth without pain or symptoms 5. Broken tooth without pain or large decay 6. Checkup exams without pain
What is essential? The following:
1. Moderate-sized or larger decay 2. Any pain or "uncomfortable" tooth (pain on cold, sweets, biting) 3. Signs of an infection - redness, pus, swelling
Question one should ask.
How do I know if my cavity is small or moderate? Especially if I do not have any pain?
What are the risks if you do not take care of a cavity right away? Would you need a root canal or extraction?
We understand that words like "essential" and "non-essential" can be vague. But to continue staying away from the dental office is a big risk.
This is exactly why we are still open.
Please call us today to schedule a checkup exam and to get your questions answered.
We have gone to great lengths to make sure you have minimal contact with other persons.
Of all the places you need to go when "out" (the grocery store, gas station, hospital), our dental office is one of the safest places due to our standard disinfection protocols and our focus on keeping our patients healthy. ... See MoreSee Less
