Dental Patient Safety in McMinnville

Dental Care Delivered with Your Safety in Mind

From the team at Wark Dental Group, we want you to know that we’re working tirelessly to ensure your health and happiness are a top priority. After all, you’re part of our family. We want to reassure you that we never compromise when it comes to your health and safety. Now, more than ever, we’re taking every step possible, both big and small, to ensure you and your family are protected and secure.

When things become uncertain, there’s one thing you can rely on, and that’s us. We’re ensuring that our office is a safe, sanitized place you and your family can depend on for focused dental care tailored to your needs. We’re taking every precaution possible both in the office and in our personal lives because, as our patients, your health (and your smile) is always on our minds.

What About My Appointment?

You’ll be asked to rinse for 30 seconds with hydrogen peroxide based mouth wash.  Please note that scheduling for social distancing is always available.

What About Sterilization and Protection?

Every day we open our office, we take infection control, sterilization, and your safety seriously.

  • Hand sanitizer available and accessible for every patient.
  • Our sterilization process involves wiping all operatory surfaces with medical-grade disinfectants and sprays after each treatment.
  • We also have a high-tech air purification system throughout the office, complete with powerful HEPA filters, and a secondary air filtration system in our HVAC system.
  • We’ve also invested in new, high-speed evacuation systems for your added comfort and safety while in our treatment rooms.
  • We sterilize our instruments in an autoclave.

The state of Oregon no longer requires masks in healthcare but patients are welcome to continue to wear masks. Also, our back office is still wearing masks while in the treatment rooms with patients.

We’ve all shown how determined and resilient we can be in these trying times. There’s nothing we won’t do to make you feel comfortable and secure when you’re with us — now and always.

We’re here to help you and guide you every step of the way. Our infection control protocols are up-to-date, safe, and in place because we care so much about the health of you and your family. At Wark Dental Group, there’s nothing we wouldn’t do to protect and ensure your health and safety.
