Keeping You Safe At All Times

At Dentistry of West Bend, we have always adhered to all safety guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association, OSHA, and WDA, and are confident that our office is a safe and healthy environment for all of our patients as well as our staff and their families. We also comply with all CDC Infection Control Guidelines.

  • All of our dental practitioners use disinfectant hand soap to wash their hands regularly throughout the day.
  • Our staff also uses personal protective equipment such as gloves, face masks, face shields, clinical gowns, and respirators as required to perform their clinical duties.
  • The office and work areas are protected by regular chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces after every use.
  • We also sterilize all equipment before every use, using both heat and chemical disinfection procedures.
  • Whenever possible, we use disposable tools and materials to ensure the utmost safety.


Hospital-grade Novaerus Air Purification System

Dentistry of West Bend uses a hospital-grade air purifier that removes bacteria, mold, and viruses from the air. The Novaerus Air Purifier provides the first line of protection against viruses and bacteria using powerful nano-plasma technology to destroy airborne microorganisms on contact, so you can breathe easy when you visit our office.


Covid-19 Safety Measures

Our office provides masks, hand sanitizer, tissues, and no-touch receptacles for proper disposal of tissues at the entrance to our office, as well as in waiting areas and at the front desk.

The waiting room is open exclusively to our patients. Anyone escorting a patient must wait outside in their car to limit the number of people in the waiting room.

Patient appointments are scheduled so that there are no more than two people in the waiting room at any time.

All our patients are advised to call ahead and reschedule their appointment if they develop any symptoms such as cough, sore throat, or fever in the days leading up to the appointment.

Upon arrival at our office, all patients are asked about the presence of any symptoms that might indicate a respiratory infection, as well as any history of recent travel, or recent contact with infected individuals. We take each patient’s temperature using a non-contact digital infrared forehead thermometer and assess all patients for any respiratory symptoms such as sneezing or cough. If a patient is found to have a temperature of 100.4 degrees F or higher, or if any respiratory symptoms are present, their visit will be rescheduled and they will be advised to seek medical care. Each patient is also asked to sign a health declaration form upon arrival.

Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.
