Dental Office COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Updated: Feb 12, 2021

At Smiles By Pai, we are taking very important precautions and implemented protocols recommended by the CDC to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy during COVID-19. Here is what you can expect at your next visit:

  • Plexiglass barriers for protection

  • Patient temperature check

  • Enforce mask-wearing while in the office

  • Pre-screen patients prior to patients coming in

  • Only 1-2 patients in the waiting room at a time

  • Staff wears N95 masks when interacting with patients

  • Windows are open in treatment rooms for airflow and ventilation

  • Separate rooms for each patient to prevent cross-contamination of air

  • HEPA filters in every room after each encounter

  • Several different oral suctions that we use

  • Hydrogen peroxide mouth wash to kill any bacteria inside their mouth

  • Hand sanitizers available around the office

VACCINATED: All staff, including our cleaning service, is vaccinated with Moderna 1 and 2 vaccine. This vaccine is the only vaccine which claims prevents transmission of virus. We are also very proud that we opened in April to see emergencies. Since then, none of our staff members tested positive. We are being extremely cautious and take every step to keep our patients and our community safe.


Virtual Consultations:

For new patients, we do offer complimentary virtual consultations for smile makeovers. It's simple. All you need to do is text our dedicated consult number 650-459-0440 with 2 photos of your face (front profile and a side view). Please describe your goals and concerns and Dr. Nidhi Pai will evaluate your smile to provide you with her best recommendations.
