Dr. J. Patrick Bowman and his Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry have been recommended as a Covid-safe, Covid-cautious dentist for children in Denver, Colorado.
The person who recommended Dr. Bowman and Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry explains that “They require masks of staff and patrons, have air purifiers built into their new building, and wash hands regularly.”
Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry’s Covid safety protocol page explains that:
We recognize times have changed. Priorities have shifted. Today, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff and patients.
With this in mind, we are happy to share the 17 additional steps we are taking to make every visit to our office as safe as possible. These actions are incremental to our normal standards of care that meet or exceed all CDC, OSHA and ADA guidelines for dental practices.
Our goal is to add peace-of-mind to the friendliness and clinical excellence you have come to expect. Of course, this is part of an on-going commitment that will evolve with the times. As always, we welcome the opportunity to answer any of your questions and to address all concerns.
We are in this together, and we will never underestimate the power of a smile!
DAILY HEALTH CHECKS OF OUR TEAM
No contact temperature checks and a quick set of questions will ensure our team is ready, willing and able to provide safe dental care – every day.
SEQUENCED PATIENT SCHEDULING
Plain and simple, we are not seeing as many patients. We are allocating more time between visits for coming, going and cleaning.
PRE-SCREENING OF EVERY PATIENT
A quick health questionnaire and consent form along with a no-touch temperature check will be completed when you arrive at our office.
EXPANDED PATIENT APPOINTMENTS
In an effort to save you time and multiple exposures, we are offering extended appointments. This allows us to do more dentistry in a single visit.
FAMILY FRIENDLY SCHEDULING
We are now able to see up to 4 children during the same visit. It is almost like your own, private dental experience.
AT-RISK PATIENT HOURS
Relax. We have hours dedicated exclusively to our special needs and medically-concerned patients. Let us add peace-of-mind to your next visit.
Some consultations and follow-up visits can be handled via our secure, patient communication portal. It is a cool, ultra-safe, and efficient extension of our office.
HOSPITAL-GRADE HAND SANITIZING STATION
Every patient will be asked to thoroughly disinfect their hands before entering the clinical area of our practice.
SOCIAL DISTANCING IN PLACE
Fewer chairs in our reception area, helpful signs and one-way traffic in our treatment area make 6’ spacing a practical reality.
CLEANING AFTER EVERY APPOINTMENT
We are super clean as we thoroughly wipe, sanitize, and disinfect all instruments, equipment and surfaces in each operatory after every patient.
DEEP CLEANING EVERY EVENING
Along with cleaning and sanitizing during the day, we take things to another level at night with a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down.
CDC-APPROVED INSTRUMENT STERILIZATION
This is standard procedure at all times, and nothing has changed. Anything that goes near your mouth is heat and pressure cleaned between every use.
N95 & ASTM LEVEL 3 MASKS
The beautiful smiles of our clinical team – dentists, hygienists, and assistants – will be protected behind double-masking at all times.
Two masks are not enough. Our clinical team will also protect you and themselves through the use of FDA Approved PET face shields.
DISPOSABLE, PROTECTIVE COATS & HATS
When appropriate, our team will utilize another layer of protection to minimize the spread or absorption of airborne particles.
ADVANCED CHAIRSIDE SUCTION
Whenever possible, we will activate high speed evacuation to minimize aerosol contamination and improve air quality.
NO MAGAZINES OR ACTIVITIES
This may make our reception area a little less exciting, but it makes it much safer as well.
In addition to these protocols, we are also implementing the following:
We Saran Wrap our iPad and change the wrapping between each patient.
We have private rooms to separate patients in the event we have more than one family in our office at a time.
