If you have a bad tooth, bleeding gums, or any other issues, it is time to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Pasadena. 

Without regular comprehensive dental examinations, oral problems can get worse. Your small cavity could develop into a larger one requiring a dental crown over the filling. In some cases, the tooth decay can infect the nerve of the tooth. If this occurs, you will need root canal therapy or may even need an extraction.

Pasadena Dentist Health and Safety Precautions

While we have always made infection control a top priority, Team Shinto is taking extra precautions recommended by infection control agencies such as the CDC, OSHA, the American Dental Association, and the California Depart of Public Health to name just a few. Your Pasadena dentist is always up to date when it comes to new guidance and/or rulings.

What to Expect from Your Dentist in Pasadena

When you arrive at our office, you will be screened for Covid-19 symptoms before having your temperature taken. To keep the waiting room clear, all patients are asked to stay in their vehicle with only one patient coming in at a time. One guardian or caretaker is allowed if the situation arises.

The front desk has been fitted with sneeze guards and hand sanitizer is placed throughout the dental practice. Masks are required and capacity has been reduced to allow for physical distancing.

Aerosol production has also been reduced along with the addition of air purifiers with HEPA filers. extraoral vacuum units, and DryShield oral evacuation systems are located in every operatory. Each room is fogged with hypochlorous acid after every use.
