One word everyone can confidently say regarding the COVID-19 pandemic is change. Every business including dentists are facing new challenges and guidelines every day. For managers and employees in dental healthcare environments, it’s of paramount importance to achieve and maintain the highest possible standards of hygiene in order to reduce the risks of further outbreaks of Covid-19 and other infectious diseases. Failure to comply with health and safety regulations can effect peoples day to day lives, disrupt treatment plans, and increase employee absenteeism.
A successful dentist depends on a pivot away from traditional pre-COVID business solutions. Businesses who do this effectively will emerge on the other side of the economic crisis stronger than they entered it.

Organise an emergency fogging service in the event of an outbreak
If an outbreak does occur in a dental clinic, it’s of paramount importance that a professional deep clean and disinfectant ultra low volume (ULV) fogging treatment is carried out. CovProtex offer this service as a fast and effective process for safely decontaminating commercial buildings. Fogging has a quick drying time and will massively reduce the number of pathogens & germs present throughout the building in comparison to manual surface cleaning alone. It is also completely safe for humans and 100x more effective than bleach and other toxic chemicals.

Employee training and constant reinforcement of hygiene best practice is essential to reduce the risk of transmission during an outbreak.
