PPE and Patient Safety at Foxhall Smiles

At Foxhall Smiles in Washington, DC, we are committed to the health and safety of our patients and staff. We have taken safety precautions to ensure that our office is safe and sanitary for everyone’s use. We have added UV-C light HEPA filtration units to our office to reduce the risk of infection. These systems help purify the air and limit the potential spread of diseases, including COVID-19. In addition, we utilize Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) Fogging to further disinfect our office. Airborne aerosols last for long periods of time to fight against viruses.

We are also screening patients and team members with temperature checks, and respecting 6-foot social distancing. At this time, we are only allowing scheduled patients to enter the office. By spacing out appointments, we see fewer patients at a time, therefore minimizing visits for treatment.
