Smile Safety Assurance™

What to expect when you visit Smile.

Safety Protocols

Face Mask

Face masks required

All patients will be required to wear a face mask when entering the building. If you do not have a face mask, one will be provided for you.

Thermometer

Thermal imaging temperature screening

When you enter Smile Dental Partners, look into the thermal imaging screen located just inside the door to take your temperature (do not remove your face mask). A green light will indicate that it is safe to enter. If you have a fever (indicated with a red light) we ask that you leave the building and call us to reschedule your appointment.

Hand washing

No-touch hand sanitizers

Next, our entrance is equipped with an automatic, no-touch hand sanitizer to clean your hands before entering the treatment area.

Dentist

Smile team protocol

Next, a Smile team member will escort you directly to your treatment room. For your peace of mind, all Smile team members are required to have their temperature screened and to wash their hands upon entering the office. Team members will not report to work if they show signs of illness. Team members are also required to wash their hands prior to seeing each patient. Medical PPE equipment is available for our team and all clinical team members (doctors, dental assistants, and hygienists) will be using N95 masks for their protection and yours.

Health

Hospital-grade sterilization

In between patients, treatment rooms and equipment are thoroughly cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectant and all instruments are sterilized.

Seal

Green Seal Certified Cleaning

Our facilities are cleaned daily. This includes our standard practice of disinfecting all surfaces (including door knobs, light switches, handrails, countertops, computers/tablets, etc.) in accordance to Touch Point Cleaning best practices and Green Seal Certified Cleaning Program GS-42.

Introducing Pathogen Control Technology

The first U.S. dentist to introduce UV-C technology.

Technology Upgrades

Pathogen

UV-C pathogen control technology

Smile Dental Parters is the first dental practice in the country to install UV light and IOT enabled technology by UV Angel, a Michigan-based company. The platform provides cloud reporting and administration to ensure accurate data and reporting for each of our practices.

UV Angel

UVAngel Air

UV Angel Air

UV Angel Air is an environmental treatment system that uses ultraviolet light to automatically and continually treat the air in our facilities and neutralize harmful pathogens. It works by drawing contaminated air containing viruses, bacteria, and fungi into a sealed UV-C chamber where they are quickly neutralized. Clean, treated air is then circulated back into the room 24/7/365. Laboratory results showed elimination rates up to 99.99%.

Keyboard

UV Angel Surface Technology

Computer keyboards and essential tools that are shared can increase risk of spreading viruses and bacteria. UV Angel Adapt Series uses intelligent, automated UV-C that safely and continuously detects and neutralizes surface contamination at a cellular level, killling at rates greater than 99%. The platform is designed to operate hundreds of times throughout the day, providing a safe, disruption-free workflow.

Thermometer

Automated AI Temperature Screening

TempScreening-Device_r2All Smile practices are equipped with the Automated AI Temperature Screening System (AATSS) at the entrance of each facility to provide the fastest and least intrusive method for protecting our patients and team members. The technology allows temperature detection in less than three seconds with measurement accuracy of +/- 0.5°F.
