COVID-19 Safety Measures

On Tuesday, April 6th Governor Holcomb lifted the state-wide mask mandate. Although many have had Covid-19 and/or been vaccinated, we continue to require masks in the facility until everyone has had the opportunity to receive a vaccination.

Polus Dental has always implemented strict sterilization and sanitation policies.

  • All instruments are sterilized or sterile single use disposable.
  • We have two sterilizers which are in constant use and spore tested weekly.
  • All contact surfaces are covered then stripped and disinfected with high level disinfectant wipes after each patient and then recovered for the next patient.
  • High volume evacuation is always used with any procedures involving aerosolization.
  • Proper OSHA hand washing techniques before and after patient contact.

Facility Safety

  • Our ventilation system constantly vents air from the office and replaces it with fresh air from outside.
  • The system has high efficiency filters and Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization units to kill bacteria, viruses and mold spores in the air.
  • It reduces VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) and airborne particles as well.
  • We continue to limit capacity in our reception area and office staff is still following masking protocols.

We continue to keep abreast of current guidelines. Thank you for you cooperation.
