At ArcadiaPerio, our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff.

As the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, we are constantly monitoring and adjusting how we care for our patients.We continue to follow the Universal Standard Precautions and Transmission-Based Precautions as recommended by the CDC, plus we’ve added the use of UVC decontamination light in all rooms. The Universal Precautions, in use since the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s, have us treating every patient as if they have a contagious disease.

The pandemic of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) presents all of us with new challenges and opportunities of discernment. Be confident in what is known, follow the facts and not the hype, and trust in God’s grace.
