The world has changed so much in the last few months and so has dentistry. Shutting down our office to help “flatten the curve” in Orange County was a hard decision to make but it also allowed time to educate myself and my staff to all the news updates and new guidelines that have been put into place by the many governing bodies of healthcare and dentistry. With this knowledge, we are able to ensure that we providing our patients with a safe, cleanly environment for their dental needs.
If you haven’t visited our office or met me, my name is Nasem Dunlop DMD. I am a board-certified pediatric dentist in Orange County and I own Treehouse Pediatric Dentistry. Along with many dental offices around the country, I closed the doors of my office in Foothill Ranch on March 16, 2020 with the shelter in place order going into effect the very next day. Since then, I have been furiously following all our governing bodies, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the California Dental Association (CDA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Governor Newsom among a few, to understand what the world of dentistry would look like when we got the green light to open our doors again.
I spent countless hours attending webinars and reading papers and guidelines. These are a few things we as a team at Treehouse Pediatric Dentistry in Foothill Ranch, California have done in the past as well as have recently implemented in response to COVID 19 to ensure the health and safety of our patients and team members:
