At Helix Dental, the safety of our patients and team has always neem a priority and COVID-19 has only strengthened our commitment to safeguarding your health during your visits to our office. We already adhere to strict sterilization and safety protocols and during this time, we have increased our efforts.
Our dentist and team follow the infection control guidelines from the American Dental Association® (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Some of the steps we are taking include:
- Asking you a series of screening questions when you schedule your visit. We will ask these same questions when you come to the office for your appointment.
- We have placed hand sanitizer at the door and in other places in our office. Please use it when you arrive for your visit and as needed during your appointment.
- We have removed the magazines and toys from our waiting room since these items can be difficult to properly sterilize.
- We are scheduling appointments to accommodate social distancing by having fewer people in the office at any time and reducing your wait time.
If you would like more information about our COVID-19 precautions in La Mesa, California, or if you would like to schedule your appointment with Dr. Natasha Kotha Flamenco call our office today at 619-493-2103.
