COVID-19 Update – Meridian Dental Care – We Are Open!

November, 27, 2020

Dear Valued Patients,

As Governor Inslee recently announced additional limitations restricting activities and businesses starting November 30, we would like to inform you that dental offices are considered ESSENTIAL. Therefore, we will be operating our normal business hours and are available to provide our full range of dental care. To date, according to the CDC, there has been no documented transmission of COVID-19 in a clinical dental setting.

At Meridian Dental Care, we are doing everything to ensure the highest level of safety and comfort for our patients and employees. Our staff is equipped with the highest level of PPE available. All staff and any person entering our building undergo screening. Every operatory is equipped with medical grade HEPA filtration, and we fog the entire office nightly with an antimicrobial mist, recognized by the EPA to be effective against SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. This is effectively cleanses any residual aerosolized contaminants and prepares the office for the next day. Fogging is effective for 48 hours, but we do it at the end of each working day. This is in ADDITION to the universal precautions against viruses that we normally practice in accordance with WISHA.

Patients are prescreened 48–72 hours prior to their appointments, with additional screening and a temperature check upon arrival. Patients wear masks when not in their operatory. Before treatment is performed patients are given an oral rinse that aids in viral and bacterial disinfection. Social distancing is monitored and enforced at all times.

Your oral health is integral for your overall health and immunity. We encourage you to continue to maintain your regular cleanings and examinations and follow through with recommended treatment. Please contact our office with any questions or clarifications.

Welcome as Early as 7am & on Saturdays!
