Delaying Due to COVID?

Are you avoiding dental treatment during the pandemic?

 Do not keep waiting.  Your oral health is integral for your overall health!  Why should you be confident coming into OUR office for dental care?  No one piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) can protect staff or patients from the virus, that is why Riverbend is proud to have many layers of protection to keep everyone safe.  Please consider the following information and call us to schedule your next appointment!

***Riverbend Dental goes above and beyond the recommendations with high capacity HEPA filters in each room and UV-C germicidal lights in the circulating air throughout the entire office.  Our staff wears PPE at all times and public areas are disinfected after each use, in addition to treatment rooms.***

Below is an excerpt from the ADA press release about routine dental care:

“August 12, 2020 —The American Dental Association (ADA) respectfully yet strongly disagrees with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation to delay “routine” dental care in certain situations due to COVID-19.

“Oral health is integral to overall health
Dentistry is essential health care,” states ADA President Chad P. Gehani, D.D.S. “Dentistry is essential health care because of its role in evaluating, diagnosing, preventing or treating oral diseases, which can affect systemic health.”

Both the ADA and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) then issued interim guidance for dental professionals related to COVID-19. The ADA’s guidance calls for the highest level of PPE available—masks, goggles and face shields.”  We have done all of this from the very start of the pandemic!

Below is an excerpt from the FDA about UV-C lights:

“UV-C radiation has been shown to destroy the outer protein coating of the SARS-Coronavirus...The destruction ultimately leads to inactivation of the virus.”  The air we breath has been cleansed!

From the RabbitAir website (our brand of HEPA filters):

“HEPA is the most trusted filtration technology in the world, used by hospitals, high-tech clean rooms, and scientific laboratories. Our advanced BioGS® HEPA filtration system is true-HEPA rated. It builds and improves on the traditional HEPA; composed of a proprietary fiber material, it traps allergens and particles 0.3 microns in size at 99.97% efficiency and particles less than 0.1 microns in size at higher than 99% efficiency3.

Our BioGS HEPA filters traps and reduces common allergens1 and bacteria2 trapped on the filter to support optimum filter efficiency and prolong filter life. Unlike traditional HEPA filters which could allow bacteria and virus to grow over time.

Germ Defense Filter effectively traps and reduces airborne bacteria, mold spores and particles that carry viruses.”
