At Humble Dentistry, your family’s health and safety are of the utmost importance. Our team at Humble Dentistry uses sufficient personal protective equipment and maintains comprehensive safety measures to protect our patients and staff.
Before Your Dental Appointment
For your convenience and safety, we provide digital forms for new and existing patients. With the simple tap of a smart device or click of a button, you can complete all patient forms online. We also are no longer shaking hands with our patients, so please don’t be offended. We are just trying to keep everyone safe, which is the best way to show we care.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed four weeks before your dental appointment, we will reschedule your visit for a date in the future. We value you as a patient, and we want to continue protecting our staff and other patients as well.
When You Arrive at Humble Dentistry
Due to COVID-19, we ask that all of our patients, doctors, and office staff wear masks or face coverings and practice social distancing. We also provide temperature checks for patients, doctors, and staff upon arrival.
To improve ventilation and air quality in our Humble, TX dental office, we have placed air purifiers in all treatment rooms, the patients’ waiting area, and the general office area. In addition to our top-of-the-line infection controls, we frequently clean and disinfect high contact surfaces in all common areas with medical-grade cleaning agents.
To prevent overcrowding and ensure social distancing is maintained in our office, we limit the use of our lobby and ask that any additional guests—such as parents or family members—stay in their car or wait in the treatment room.
We Provide Safe and Sanitary Treatment
Before treatment, we provide all patients with antiseptic mouth rinses to reduce the spread of germs. Our entire dental team wears additional PPE to ensure the safety of our patients and colleagues.
During treatment, we use these dental devices for comfort and safety: Isolite®, Ivory® ReLeafTM, and rubber dams. Each of these devices protects our patients and dentists regarding infection control, cross-contamination, accidental swallowing, and trauma to oral tissues.
Intraoral Suction Devices
Isolite and Ivory ReLeaf are flexible intraoral suction devices that comfortably eliminate saliva, shield your throat, block your bite, and hold your tongue in place during an exam, cleaning, or procedure. These hands-free suction devices can make your experience more pleasant, relaxing, and efficient. Not to mention the mouthpieces are comfortable, soft, and can fit all patients’ mouths. Ultimately, Isolite and Ivory ReLeaf help your dentist work more quickly and effectively, so you spend less time in the dental chair.
The rubber dam is a thin sheet of rubber that protects your lips, cheeks, tongue, and gums from infection during dental treatment. It shields the soft tissues in your mouth for better visibility so your dentist can focus their attention on your teeth or procedure.
The rubber dam and intraoral suction devices help our team take care of as much as possible in one treatment to minimize your number of visits to our office.
