COVID-19 Safety

Welcome to Starlight Dental! We hope that you and your families are all keeping well during the Covid 19 pandemic. For your protection, we have implemented enhanced safety measures that meet and often exceed all required guidelines. Here are some of the changes you may notice during your next Dental visit:

  1. Pre-Screening questions will be asked over the phone and before your appointment
  2. Temperature checks will be done upon arrival to the office
  3. Patients will need to bring their own masks for their appointments
  4. Hand sanitization will be performed upon entry and exit from the clinic. Hand Sanitizers have also been placed strategically throughout the office.
  5. Each room has been equipped with Medical Grade Air Filtration Units (Surgically Clean Air, Dyson) that remove more than 99% of viruses, bacteria and other particles.

  6. Flight Defender Aerosol Evacuation units have been placed in operatories. These high power vacuum systems remove bacteria, viruses, aerosols and allergens. These particles are filtered through a 3 stage Hepa filtration system which traps 99.97% of all particles. These particles are then disinfected by UV light treatment.

  7. ULV fogging disinfection with Hypochlorous Acid. Hypochlorous Acid is a non-toxic chemical that is naturally produced by the human body. Hypochlorous acid is approximately 100x more effective than bleach at killing pathogens while being safe for human cells.
  8. Enhanced PPE has been implemented including:
    • Enclosure of all operatories which are subjected to air purification before, during and after each appointment
    • Sneeze Guards have been placed in Reception areas
    • KN95 masks, 3M N95 masks, Level 3 Surgical masks
    • Honeywell and 3M Half Mask Respirator
    • Optrel PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator)
    • Surgical Gowns and Gloves
    • Face Shields

We look forward to seeing you soon!
