Dr. Schwans COVID-19 Open Letter to Patients

June 2020

Feeling Overwhelmed by COVID19? Here Dr. Schwan discusses the steps his office has taken to keep you safe.

We hope this email finds you and your family in good health.  We have taken extraordinary measures at Dr Schwan’s office to ensure the safety and continued superior quality of dental care that we provide.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.

Our office exceeds all infection control guidelines required by the American Dental Association, the US Center for Disease Control & Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Dr. Schwan has carefully evaluated and instituted some changes in the office to remediate concerns with COVID 19.  When it is time for your next appointment:

  • Our office will screen before and when you arrive for your next appointment by taking your temperature and asking questions.
  • We will require that you wear a mask and gloves upon entering our office and if necessary, supply you with these.
  • Our reception area will no longer have magazines and provide for social distancing.
  • We will need your help and cooperation to arrive on time so that we can avoid any wait before your appointment.
  • Once you’re seated, we will ask you to use an antimicrobial mouth-rinse of Colgate Peroxyl or the new IosRinse.
  • Our treatment area is now having all the air purified 5 times per hour by our new Airgle unit that uses carbon, hepa and ultraviolet modules with automatic monitoring of the air quality.
  • Our superior suction system has been upgraded with the use of chairside Isovac and Purevac units which remove over 95% of any aerosols.

Our staff is using the best PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to minimize any risk of cross contamination.  

We have installed an in-office laundry area to provide a constant supply of carefully cleaned and maintained uniforms.

We will be using the latest electrostatic device for maintaining a hospital grade decontamination of all office surfaces with environmentally safe Purkil Bio.

A major resource for making these changes has been:
