Pre-screening Measures and Questions

Before you visit our dental office in Springfield, we’ll give you a call and conduct a health screening by asking you some questions. We do this to gauge how you’re feeling and any possible exposure or risk factors for COVID-19. When you arrive for your appointment, we kindly ask that you wait in your car. We will call you when we’re ready for you to enter the building. In the office foyer, a friendly team member will take your temperature and repeat the health screening you had over the phone. If at any time you feel uncomfortable or have questions, please let us know so we can help.

Updated Sterilization and Disinfection Protocols

Before the COVID-19 outbreak, our Springfield office was already extremely safe, relying on very stringent procedures for infection control protocol. We have a medical-grade air purification system in every room. You’ll notice that we’ve staggered appointment times, creating a longer period in between each patient. This allows us to completely disinfect and clean the office before you arrive. Every room is sprayed with hospital-grade disinfectant. All tools are sterilized using extremely high heat in our autoclave. We’ve also added barriers around the office for increased protection from aerosols. And as a bonus, all of our operatories are individual rooms with doors to keep your appointments much more private.

Personal Protective Equipment and More

Personal Protective Equipment and More

Please note that any changes or updated protocols are based on the helpful guidelines set up by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Dental Association, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. To protect you and our team members, we now wear KN95 protection and face shields.  We ask patients to do a disinfecting pre-rinse before we begin your treatment. We also utilize:

  • Hands-free lights
  • Oral aerosol evacuation equipment
  • Medical-grade air purifiers
  • An Isolite suction system
  • HOCL disinfectant fogger

As things continue to change and improve, we’ll do the same at our office. If these very strange times have kept you from seeing the dentist, we hope you’ll schedule an appointment with Baines Dental Wellness. Please know that we’re committed to continuing to take every precaution possible in our professional and personal lives to help us all stay safe and healthy.
