At Marina Tooth Fairy Dental, we are closely monitoring developments regarding the outbreak of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Since many people wonder what sort of infection control procedures are used in a dental office, but don’t often ask, we thought we’d take the proactive approach and share with you how we keep your health and safety at the top of our list at Marina Tooth Fairy Dental.

Hygiene is at the core of every sound dental practice. No doubt when you arrive at our office, you notice it is clean from top to bottom, and that familiar dentist office “clean” scent permeates the air. That fresh clean scent is a testament to our adherence to the strict guidelines set out by the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), that instruct our every move when it comes to protecting each patient.

It means that all surfaces in the appointment room, including the dental chair, dental light, and all drawers and countertops have been cleaned and decontaminated. We also at times cover these areas with protective covers and replace them with each new patient.

We want to be proactive and take the following measures to maintain a safe practice for all our staff and patients.

Practive these everyday preventative actions:​

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds)
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick
  • Cover your mouth or sneeze with a tissue

Your health and safety is important to the entire staff.

If you are feeling sick during your appointment, please tell an office staff immediately so we can figure out how to best help you. If you are feeling sick before your appointment, please call our office or your primary care doctor (PCP) prior to going to the office to avoid spreading to other people. And if you ever have any other questions we can address for you regarding this or any other concern, please call our office at (415) 409-3368 – we’ll be glad to assist.

We are monitoring the situation daily and will update you to any policy or office changes on our Facebook moving forward. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation at this time.

Thank you,
The Marina Tooth Fairy Dental Team
