FROST DENTAL GROUP ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTION and SANITATION

We are continually researching and updating our COVID-19 disinfection protocol. In addition to our new 9 medical grade Surgically Clean Air Purifiers, our Chairside Aerosol Suctions units and our whole office HALO LED system, we are now providing an additional layer of infection control. 
Frost Dental Group has applied an anti-microbial spray in conjunction with an electrostatic misting application system throughout our entire space including our treatment rooms, hallways, office area and reception. The key function of the molecule is its long chain of atoms that create spikes that are large enough to pierce the cell wall of various microbes resulting in their elimination. 

After applied to any surface, this process creates a micro-biostatic, antimicrobial film on the surface that provides for longer term protection. This works especially well on all high touch point areas.
The electrostatic spray mist establishes an invisible nano layer that mechanically prevents microbial growth. This application prevents and destroys microbial growth on hard surfaces and fabrics and will last on surfaces while continuously preventing the build-up of viruses, bacteria mold, fungi and germs, without the use of toxins or poisons.

Stay Safe!

We hope that you and your family are in good health. As NJ slowly continues to reopen, now more than ever, it's important for you to resume your dental care to help protect your overall health. While many things may have changed, one thing remains the same, our steadfast commitment to your safety. We have enhanced the safety of our practice through various technologies and protocols. As a dental practice, we are already infection control experts and we continue to reevaluate and update these protocols daily. 

Our practice strictly follows infection protection recommendations made by the ADA, CDC and OSHA. We have and continue to take many critical steps to reinforce best practices for all of our procedural, operational, infection prevention and environmental controls. As always, our infection prevention control processes are meticulously followed so that when you receive care, it's both safe and comfortable. 
It's our hope that the information below will help you feel confident, comfortable and safe about returning to us for all of your dental needs. 

Our commitment to you:


• While visiting your dentist, now more than ever, cleansing the air you breathe is critical. We have taken a three step approach to enhance our air purification and air exchange systems to provide us with clean, sterilized and disinfected air. 


Step 1: We have installed 9 hospital grade Surgically Clean Air purifiers. These free standing air purifiers are of the highest quality and have been placed in each treatment room, and throughout our practice. They continually remove viruses, gasses, allergens, mold and odors, as the air is purified and exchanged between 4-5 times per hour. 

frost dental group in ritherford, nj uses jade air purifiers to provide disinfected air.


• Each individual air purification unit is designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms. As air is forced through each device, it will pass UV lamps, which directly attempt to disinfect the air by means of germicidal irradiation. The air is re-energized with a 6 stage filtration and sterilization process. This is especially important because Surgically Clean Air’s proprietary HEPA-Rx filters meet or exceed the guidelines for general surgery applications.


Step 2: We have also installed top of the line Chairside Aerosol Suction units for use in each of our treatment rooms. These Chairside Aerosol Suction units are equipped with a UV-C light to disinfect their internal HEPA filter and a plasma, to eliminate any remaining germs and bacteria in the exhaust. Combining extremely strong air pressure with incredibly high air flow, these units continuously prevent viruses, spit, blood, dust and more from spreading by eliminating droplets, germs, bacteria, saliva, and gasses.

Step 3: We have installed a HALO-LED directly into our HVAC system. This overall LED in-duct air purification system is both mercury free and zero ozone compliant. The HALO-LED will proactively treat our air conditioned and heated space, by reducing airborne and surface contaminants and pollutants through bi-polar ionization to eliminate sick building syndrome risks. This process is our final layer of cleaning, sterilizing and disinfecting the air throughout our entire dental practice.

These are just a few of the very important additional steps we've taken to ensure that you're safe in our hands upon your return. For the past 65 years we have valued your trust and loyalty and we look forward to seeing you again soon.


We are filled with compassion for those who have been affected by the virus. Together we are stronger.

FROST DENTAL GROUP IS OPEN

dr. lee frost uses ppe for the health and safety of his patients. frost dental group in ritherford nj uses the best infection control methods.While this is a bit long, we urge you to read it through to the end. It's our hope that the information below will help you feel confident, comfortable and safe about returning to us for all of your dental needs.

We hope that you and your family are in good health. As New Jersey begins to reopen, it's important for you to start thinking about your dental care. Although many things may have changed, one thing remains the same, our steadfast commitment to your safety. We have enhanced the safety of our practice through various technologies and protocols. 

Many of our changes are visible, and some are not. However, the changes that you aren't able to see are just as important. 

Our commitment to you:

• Our practice strictly follows infection protection recommendations made by the ADA, CDC and OSHA. We have taken many critical steps to continue to reinforce best practices for all of our procedural, operational, infection prevention and environmental controls. As always, our infection prevention control processes are meticulously followed so that when you receive care, it's both safe and comfortable.

• We continue to use CDC approved hospital grade disinfectants. As before, each treatment room is thoroughly disinfected between each patient. We use the same hospital grade disinfectants throughout our dental practice on a continual basis, especially on all high touch points and on common surfaces.

• Our doctors and clinicians will look different during your appointment. To provide the highest level of protection to ourselves and our patients, our clinical staff may be wearing N95 masks, glasses, face shields, gloves, isolation gowns, caps and booties.

• We will conduct daily screening of all doctors, clinicians, and staff members. This includes, but is not limited to, COVID-19 screening questions, oxygen levels, and temperature checks.

• In healthcare, now more than ever, cleansing the air we breathe is crucial. We have taken a three step approach to enhance our air purification and air exchange systems to provide us with clean, sterilized and disinfected air. 

• Step 1: We have purchased hospital grade Surgically Clean Air purifiers. These free standing air purifiers are of the highest quality and will be placed in each treatment room, and throughout our practice. They continually remove viruses, gasses, allergens, mold and odors, as the air is purified and exchanged between 4-5 times per hour.

 Our ask of you:

• For the safety of our patients and staff, if you, a family member or a close contact, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, if you have tested positive, if you aren't feeling well, or if you think that you may have been exposed to the virus at anytime prior to your appointment, we ask that you please notify us immediately. 

• Our appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. We are allowing for greater time in between patients, as well as reducing the number of patients in our practice at any one time.

• Our staff will communicate with you prior to your appointment to fill out a new health history form (if applicable,) and answer a COVID-19 screening. You’ll be asked those same screening questions again when you arrive, and during our follow up phone call after your appointment.

• As per mandates, you will be required to wear your own mask prior to entering our building, and to keep it on at all times while in our office. This includes while you're in our treatment room, and immediately after your dental treatment is completed. Your clinician will let you know when it's time to take your mask off and when to put it back on. We ask that you please come alone to your appointment, as only you will be allowed in our treatment room.

• When you arrive, please call us from your car. We will let you know when it's time come to the office and a clinician will meet you at our front door. 

• Prior to entering, we will take your temperature with a non-contact infrared thermometer. Once in our treatment room, we will also read your oxygen levels and ask you to use a pre-treatment rinse.

• You will be required to use our contactless hand sanitizer upon entering our practice and throughout your stay. You will find contactless hand sanitizers in multiple areas throughout our practice, as well as at the entrance, exit and elevator of our medical building.

These are just some of the very important steps that we've taken to ensure that you're safe in our hands upon your return. For the past 65 years we have valued your trust and loyalty and we look forward to welcoming you back. We are filled with compassion for those who have been affected by the virus. Together we are stronger.
We will be giving priority to those patients who were cancelled and we will attempt to contact you to reschedule.

The Power to Heal Our Communities


Dentistry is a healing profession. And when our communities are in pain, each of us has the individual power to advocate for the people we serve.

The ADA mourns the passing of George Floyd, who died last week while he was being restrained by police in Minneapolis. We are faced with a hurt that is, unfortunately, all too familiar. The ensuing outcry over Mr. Floyd’s death is not just about this singular incident, but instead a centuries-long history of discrimination and brutality against Black people and other communities of color. We add his name to the list of others’ whose lives have also been cut short under the heinous, yet enduring legacy of racial injustice.

And with every addition to this list, there is a wound that weeps from repeated injury. There is sadness, anger, and frustration—and rightfully so. Just think: In 1963, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., shared his dream that our society would one day “hew a stone of hope” for his children and generations then unborn, all in the name of democracy and in the security of justice. Instead, 57 years later, we continue to reach new altitudes on what he called “a mountain of despair.”

Today, our organization stands together to say No. More.

We denounce the acts of racism and violence that have occurred across our nation. We stand with our colleagues who have been affected by current events, and with those whose longstanding fears and heartaches have been stoked once again.

We implore you to embrace diversity and inclusion not as buzzwords or intellectual exercises. This is the moment for the dental community—as a robust tapestry of people from all backgrounds and walks of life—to live its values. We must live each day with intention. We must choose to live with integrity and respect toward our fellow human beings. We must choose to recognize that their lives matter, too.

We won’t dismantle systemic inequality overnight. To paraphrase Theodore Parker, the 19th century abolitionist minister whose work inspired the writings of Dr. King, the arc of the moral universe is long. We may not see what the end will be. But, today, we must do what we can—by actions and conscience—to ensure that the arc bends toward justice.

This is the moment to unravel from whatever personal biases we may harbor. To become allies. To have the hard conversations. To listen to voices that have long gone unheard. To speak up for those who have been disenfranchised. To commit to empathy and understanding. To be forces for change. To be agents of harmony. To call out wrong when we see it. And to do what’s right when we can.  

The healing of our communities is in our hands.
 
Chad P. Gehani, DDS
President, American Dental Association
