Infection Control

Your health and safety have always been our top priority and we implemented many new changes to keep patients and staff safe. We have recently serviced our HEPA Air Purifiers with UV-C filtration throughout the office as to ensure they are working properly to continue to reduce aerosol. We will be using the most up to date Infection Control practices and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) in our office. The entire staff has and will continue to be screened for Covid-19 on a daily basis. Prior to all appointments, we will screen all patients for COVID-19 with a phone interview and a day of appointment screening. These screenings and patient’s following out infection control guidelines are required in order to be seen in our office.

Our new office protocols follow the recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), California Dental Association (CDA) and California Department of Public Health (CDPH). We are going above and beyond what is required to minimize your exposure and keep us all safe, as we have always strived to do.

We have implemented the following new protocols for your next appointment:

  • Stay in car and call/text us when you have arrived for your appointment. We will let you know when you can come inside.
  • A face covering will be provided for you, prior to entering our office.
  • We will be asking pre-screening questions, dispensing hand sanitizer and taking your Temperature.
  • We will have you rinse with disinfectant oral rinse before and after any procedures for 2 minutes.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you and every patient safe in our practice. For any questions or concerns, please call our office at 530-894-5454 or email us at

Thank you for your confidence. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
