Dr. Mitchell Kaplan at Kaplan Periodontics has been recommended as a Covid-safe provider of periodontal services in Ann Arbor, MI. Here’s why Dr. Kaplan has been recommended as a Covid-safe periodontist in Ann Arbor.
According to the person who submitted Dr. Kaplan “Dr.Kaplan and the hygienists wear N95s and medical masks on top. They have multiple high-quality filtration devices in the waiting room and personal rooms, including a hose that goes right in front of your face. They screen you and get your vaccine card before treating you. Also the doctor has you keep your mask on until you absolutely need to take it off. As far as I know, masks are still required in the office. Dr.Kaplan was on some board for Covid safety and dentistry during lock-down, so he is very knowledgeable and cautious about Covid.”
Dr. Kaplan also has a Covid page on his site, which says, in part, that while they are not requiring tests any more, where’s what they are requiring:
PLEASE WEAR A MASK WHEN ENTERING OUR OFFICE.
PLEASE STAY HOME IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
**If you have any of these signs or symptoms, please stay home and call your physician, then please call us to reschedule.
**Also, if you have been exposed to anyone who has COVID-19 in the past 10 days, we will need to postpone your appointment until 2 weeks after your exposure.
Changes we have made to our office:
We have added 8 high-quality HEPA air filtration units to our office to help clean and turn over room air using MERV 19 filters.
More importantly each treatment room will have a dental snout to help capture any aerosols that occur during a procedure. We have chosen the IQAIR HEALTH PRO PLUS whichutilizes hyper-hepa air filtration at 300 cubic feet a minute along with the DENTAL FLEXVAC creating a negative pressurezone at the point of treatment.
We have also added iWave-C with Needle Point Bi-Polar Ionization to help purify the air in our suite along with a Merv 13 filter in our HVAC system.
Our clinical staff will be wearing either N95 or KN95 masks when we are caring for you.
We have added sneeze guards at the front office.
We added wall extenders and curtains to help control airflow.
We have adjusted air returns to have airflow from the front of our office toward our treatment rooms.
WHEN IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO VISIT:
1. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment.
2. Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment unless you are not able to come by yourself.
3. We are asking all patients to enter our office already wearing a mask (who are medically able to do so).
