Universal Precautions Followed

Here at Dental Care by Gretchen, we have always and will continue to follow universal precautions for your protections. We are confident these guidelines will help create a safe environment for all of our patients and team members. We are doing everything in our power to provide the safest clinical conditions in order to protect  our patients, our team and our families. 

If you would like to know more about our precautions, click the safety measure below to review what it includes.

Sanitization Techniques

Our team has had training in proper hand washing and sanitizing techniques (before and after patient contact, contact with potentially infectious material, before putting on and after removing PPE).

We frequently wipe down door handles, tables, light switches, computers, etc.

Team members will strictly follow basic control practice between patients, including the OSHA standard “spray, wipe, spray” technique (totaling more than 10 minutes).

We will change our gowns if they become soiled, removing and discarding the gown into a dedicated area for soiled linen.

All non-disposable medical equipment used for patient care will be cleaned and disinfected according to manufacturer’s instructions.


We are prioritizing high risk patients (immune compromise, over 60, etc.) with early morning appointments.

We are encouraging patients to wait in their car or outside the office where they can be contacted by text/phone call when it is their time to be treated.

We are posing visual alerts (signs and posters) at the entrance door advising patients of the Covid-19 risk and advising them not to enter the facility when ill.

Patients will be escorted into an examination room immediately upon entering the office.

Patients will be asked to rinse and gargle with 1.5% hydrogen peroxide for 30-60 seconds before each appointment.

Limit movement of patients outside of operators.

Team & Office Standards

HEPA air purification/filtration systems with UV light are available throughout the office and treatment operatories.

We place great attention to detail, ensuring that we are consistently and correctly following standard and transmission-based precautions in our operatories.

Team members will wear PPE (N95 or KN95 masks, gloves, eye protection, face shield and gown).

We will put on clean gloves upon entry into the patient room.

No unnecessary team members will be in the operatories.

Safe Removal of Mercury Fillings

High evacuation action technology to safely remove silver fillings.
