COVID-19

  • On 07/17/2020, Georgia Dental Medicine installed 6 Airo-ProHO Air Sanitation Units made by kesair.com, a Kennesaw GA company.  These units are an advanced airborne pathogen reduction air purification system and purify/circulate 220 cubic feet of air per minute.  Thus, the air in each operatory is fully circulated three or more times per hour. 
  • Air-ProHO units use a patented AiroCide® Air Sanitation technology originally developed by NASA to kill airborne Mold, Bacteria, Viruses and Allergens through a process called Photocatalytic Oxidation.  This process also breaks down VOC’s like ethylene gas, formaldehyde and many odors into micro amounts of harmless carbon dioxide and water vaper.  This technology is a listed FDA Class II Medical Device, so it is completely user and environment safe, with NO EMISSIONS.  Unit energy usage is the equivalent of (1) 100 watt light bulb.
  • AiroCide is the only commercial air purification technology that completely mineralizes (turns organics into carbon dioxide and water vapor) airborne bacteria, mold, fungi, mycotoxins, viruses, allergens, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s like ethylene), and odors.  What’s more, the device produces no harmful byproducts, such as ozone.  This AiroCide technology was first launched aboard Space Shuttle Columbia mission STS-73, where onboard the spacecraft the device was used successfully to preserve crop growth by removing ethylene gas and other airborne contaminants.
  • For more information about the units we have installed, see https://kesair.com/airopro-home-office/?ref=learnmore.  For more info about the technology:  https://kesair.com/technology/.
  • We also alternate Operatories so that the room you vist will have been vacant for the last hour.

At Georgia Dental Medicine, this newest investment is another step in our ongoing, never ending quest to provide the Best Possible care for our wonderful Patients.

Thank you for your trust in Georgia Dental Medicine and remember to schedule your next "Preventative Oral Care and Wellness Exam" from on of our licensed Hygenists.

Georgia Dental Medicine Enhanced Patient Safety Protocol

We have made changes to our safely protocols due to COVID-19.  Our protocols follow the guidelines set up by the CDC, American Dental Association and Georgia Dental Association.  Below are the changes we have made to ensure the safety of our patients and our team:

  • We are asking that you call us from the parking lot when you arrive for your appointment. We will direct you into the office when there are no other patients present in the waiting room or hallways.
  • We are asking that only the patient come inside the building whenever possible. By the way we do now have a handicap ramp if needed.
  • We will ask you to take your temperature and complete a Treatment Consent Screening Form and then take you directly to an operatory room.
  • Patients will be given a peroxide rinse prior to treatment.
  • We have enhanced our use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that our practitioners use, for both your and their protection. We are using N95 or equivalent masks, face shields and other PPE equipment.  You will have to check out Dr. Chris’ custom 3D printer created Darth Vader face mask.
  • As has always been the case, all operatory areas are fully sanitized before each patient. Additionally, we have reduced the number of hygiene rooms active at the same time.  This allows us to use alternating operatories to give extra time for cleaning as well as giving time for any airborne particles to settle down.
  • We have installed Global Plasma Solutions ionization filtering units on both of our HVAC systems. This reduces particles, odor, and pathogens in the air.
  • We have increased the cleaning frequency of our public spaces.
  • As always, we are available for dental emergencies for all our patients. Additionally, as an ongoing service to our community, we will also be available for any dental emergency, regardless of your status as a patient of record or not.

If you need to make an appointment, just give us a call.  We are ready for you.

If you want to reschedule/delay your appointment for a while, we understand and will do our best to accommodate your needs. 

Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to keep you safe when you visit our office.

The ADA (American Dental Association) recognizes that members of the public have questions about whether they should continue to visit their dentist during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because the ADA is currently recommending dentists close their offices to all but emergency care, we have provided guidelines to help patients determine when to consult with their dentist as to whether care should be rescheduled. When in doubt, please call your dentist to determine the best course of action.
