What we are doing for infection control.

Your well-being is important to Dr. Kuo and staff. We continue to adhere by the strict guidelines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has set for dental office infection control. Dr. Kuo cares about your safety and works hard to prevent the spread of infection. Dr. Kuo and staff are vaccinated against Covid-19. Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops, have been cleaned and disinfected. Disposable protective covers replaced after each patient. Non-disposable items like the dental tools are cleaned and sterilized between patients. Disposable dental tools and needles are never reused. We always use appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, masks, gowns and eyewear when needed. After each patient, disposable gloves and masks are thrown away. Before seeing the next patient, everyone on the treatment team washes their hands and put on a new pair of gloves. True HEPA filters and UV sterilization are used to purify air in the office. Additionally, we also use Backtaleen fog treatment to disinfect all surfaces.

Can I come in for a routine/non-emergency appointment?

Yes, we are now open for full dental service. We carefully adhere to COVID-19 prevention protocols. Patient and staff safety is our top priority.
