The safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority, and the current COVID-19 situation makes it even more of a concern. We think it’s important to share with you what we are doing here at the practice so you feel comfortable and confident during your next visit.

We are proud to announce that we have installed a couple of pieces of equipment to keep the air clean and disinfect surfaces:
- Surgically Clean Air (SCA) purifiers have been installed in all of our patient rooms and the lobby. These premium air purifiers have a filtration system that captures a variety of pollutants and allergens such as dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), gasses, mold, allergens, viruses, odors like formaldehyde and smoke, bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants that can be found in the air in workplaces. It doesn’t just trap them though, it helps destroy them.
- A fogging machine is now being used to disinfect the entire office each night with hypochlorous acid or ‘electrolyzed water’. We use it to make sure all the hard-to-reach surfaces are being sterilized each day. It’s completely safe — our bodies make it to fight off bacteria and viruses.
Of course we will also be wearing masks and gloves, as we usually do to protect patients and ourselves, but we wanted to take it one step further and use technology like the purifiers and fogging machine as added safeguards.
If you have any questions about how we are keeping our office clean and safe, please feel free to call our Magnolia office today. Our friendly team will be happy to answer your questions. We look forward to seeing you soon.
