Enhanced e.s.i Equipment and What it Means for Safety from COVID-19
By The Wave Agency
A side-effect of the global pandemic has been a rise in worries over visits to medical offices, including visits to the dentist and general health checkups. However, as the pandemic continues, it is important to note the many measures taken by dentists such as those at e.s.i. Healthy Dentistry.
These measures include upgrades to already top-of-the-line equipment, as well as new features meant to continue e.s.i.’s passion for comfortable and healthy dentistry.
e.s.i.’s New Equipment
Face Shields: Face shields have been utilized by e.s.i. throughout the pandemic for their added protection from possible airborne infection. This works both ways, and allows for patients to not have to worry about the distance between themselves and staff.
Air Purifiers: Added to put patients at ease, air purifiers are used in treatment rooms and are meant to continuously provide clean air.
UV-C Sterilization Wands: Sterilization wands are used to disinfect sensitive items without chemicals, allowing for a pure sterile environment.
These new features of e.s.i. Healthy Dentistry, along with plenty others, have allowed for e.s.i. to continue the mission of patient comfort, as well as to dismiss fears of necessary visits to the dentist. You can learn more on the e.s.i. Healthy Dentistry website.
e.s.i.’s Enhanced Equipment
Disposable Gowns: While disposable gowns have always been used by e.s.i., their function has greatly changed. Rather than use only during surgery, these gowns are now utilized for “all aerosol procedures.”
Disinfectant: Hospital-grade disinfectant is now used on all surfaces, even those outside of treatment rooms in order to ensure safe and bacteria free environments. This is especially true for frequently touched surfaces like door handles and restrooms.
Temporal Scanners and Contactless Thermometers: These devices, which previously were used only to monitor sedation patients, are now used before every procedure in order to ensure the safety and comfortability of all parties involved.
e.s.i. Healthy Dentistry cares about patient comfort, as well as patient health. Through these measures, they have been able to serve their patients better than ever, all within an environment that was made for ease of mind.
