Valley dentistry takes precautionary measures for patients' safety

Those in dentistry are advising the public that they are taking all of the precautionary measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association to ensure that every patient is being well taken care of when entering any dental facility.

Dr. Cruz says most dental facilities have already been implementing ultraviolet air purifiers, which use UVC light to stop airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria and viruses.
