We prioritize patient safety, and are working proactively to stop the spread of COVID-19, and protect our community.
Fishtown Dentistry complies with all Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention infection control guidelines, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our staff and patients are monitored for symptoms, and all visitors are screened before entering the office.
Each of our operatories, and the associated instruments and materials, are disinfected thoroughly according to manufacturer’s guidelines between use, with ample time allotted prior to patients’ arrival.
The office has installed HEPA air purifying filters, and upper air ultraviolet light fixtures, specifically designed for examination rooms, that interrupt the transmission of airborne infectious disease, bacteria, and viruses. Each operatory is equipped with high vacuum suction, used alongside aerosol-producing procedures, to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19.
Our team has had access to COVID vaccination, and we encourage all patients to make an appointment for vaccination as soon as you are eligible. Philadelphia city government has provided more information, and opportunities to sign-up for vaccination, on this web page.
