Is it Safe to Have Routine Dental Work During the Pandemic?

From how we shop to how we spend our free time, the pandemic has seriously changed otherwise mundane activities. But what about when those routine activities are health-related? You may be wondering if it’s still safe to come to the dentist, especially if you just need a standard cleaning. Here’s what you need to know about getting routine dental work during the pandemic.

Essential Dental Care

While some may think that dental checkups and cleanings can easily be put on the back burner until the pandemic is over, they may not be looking at the full story. The fact is dental checkups and cleanings may be routine, but that doesn’t mean they’re not essential. These regular visits are a crucial part of maintaining your oral health, which is tied to your overall health.

Safety Protocols in Place

Even without factoring in the pandemic, dental offices are required to follow a strict set of rules when it comes to health and safety. This involves disinfection of all surfaces and tools, and wearing specific protective gear. These same procedure standards are there to minimize any possible contamination from patient to patient.

Lybrook Dental’s Commitment to Health & Safety

In addition to meeting the standard health and safety protocols, Lybrook Dental goes above and beyond to ensure that you’re being seen in a clean, safe environment. We prioritize your wellness, and we’ve updated our procedures to meet an even higher level of hygiene. We understand that your own personal comfort level and health history will play a role in your decision. However, we are doing everything possible to help you feel safe visiting the dentist’s office. If you’d like to know more, please don’t hesitate to call our Fruita dental practice directly. Lybrook Dental is always just a phone call or email away.
