Is It Safe To Go To The Dentist? Steps We Are Taking To Keep You Safe

At DentAllon Dentistry, we know the COVID-19 pandemic may make you a bit nervous about getting dental care. But in this blog, we’ll discuss steps we’re taking to keep you safe, and why it’s important to get the dental care you need, even during this difficult time. 

What We Are Doing To Protect Patients & Staff

Dr. Liel Allon takes patient and staff safety very seriously at our office. A few of the steps we’re taking to protect you during your appointment include:

  • Patient questionnaires to check for signs of COVID-19 before appointments
  • Temperature checks for patients and staff
  • PPE for all front-office team members
  • Face mask/covering requirements for all patients
  • Enhanced cleaning of patient operatories and common areas
  • Spreading out patient appointments to minimize the number of people in our office
  • Requiring patients to come alone to appointments unless they are supervising children or need assistance to get into and out of our office

Got An Emergency? It’s Safer To Go To The Dentist Than A Hospital

Did you know that most hospitals don’t have ER dentists on-staff, and may not even be able to care for your issue if you visit the ER for a dental emergency? Even if you can get treatment, it’s much more expensive to get dental care at the hospital.

Not only that, but since hospitals may have patients with COVID-19 and other infectious illnesses, going to the ER can put your overall health at risk. We recommend you come and see Dr. Allon for the emergency dental care you need in Houston, rather than going to the hospital. 

Wondering if your condition counts as a dental emergency? Refer to our Dental Emergencies page to see if you’re experiencing a serious dental issue. If you are, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (832) 975-0780 to schedule an appointment and get the help you need.

As of now, there’s no way to know what dentistry will look like in a post-COVID world, and it may be several years until this disease is completely eliminated, even with new vaccination programs launching in the US. 

However, at DentAllon Dentistry, we are committed to keeping you safe and protecting you, and we will continue to use modern technology, best practices, and common sense to keep you safe from infectious diseases at our office during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
