Info on Covid-19




Our office is taking these precautionary measures to keep our patients and employees safe!
 

1. Screening and going over the questionnaire over the phone and also at the time of the appointment.

2. Measuring the temperature, both employees and patients.

3. Having one large and three small individual air purifiers with HEPA filter and UV light sanitizer.

4. Wearing PPEs, wipe, disinfect and sterilize as we would normally do.

5. Install sneeze guards for the front office.

6. Practice safe distancing and wearing masks unless being treated and limiting number of people in the lobby.

7. HVAC suctions / devices to reduce the aerosols during procedures.







 

We also started using Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) as an extra measure. HOCl is made in the office using tap water, kosher salt, and distilled white vinegar. The solution is PH and ppm tested and applied inside the office twice a day with a cold fogger.
 

HOCl is a naturally occurring chemical that is produced by our neutrophils, or white blood cells, to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection or trauma, which means it is completely safe even if ingested!


You can find a recent research on the link below mentioning hypocholous acid's safety and effectiveness against aerosoles with Covid-19:
