Keeping Everyone Safe in our Office
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we use to live our daily lives, and the visit to the dentist is no exception. Our patient’s oral health and safety remain our highest priority. We make sure to follow guidelines from the CDC, CDPH, and other dental organizations such as CDA and ADA to ensure the safety of our patients, families, and staff. You can still expect the same level of cleanliness, quality, and care in our offices. We have implemented some changes to our office routine to help mitigate concern our patient may have regarding being seen during this pandemic. Here’s what you can expect on your next visit at our dental offices.
Patient & Staff Screenings
We will ask all patients and their other immediate family to complete a screening and temperature check before being seen. Our staff are also screened daily, and if any team member showing symptoms or considered at-risk will not be permitted to work.
Limiting Patients in the Office
To ensure the safety of everyone, we will be limiting the number of patients in our offices. We ask that you do not bring extra family members to appointments as our waiting rooms gets busy often.
Social Distancing & One-Way Traffic
We will be enforcing social distancing in our waiting rooms, with chairs setup to implement this effort. We will be utilizing a one-way traffic to minimize crossing contact.
Personal Protective Equipment & Masks
Our dentists and clinical staff will be wearing additional protective equipment during your dental visit. We will also ask that you wear a mask while in our offices. We also will being using external high volume suction device with built-in hepa-filters to capture and sterilize the dental aerosols, creating a safer environment for everyone.
For patients that are able to, we will ask to rinse with a Chlorhexidine and/or 1.5% hydrogen peroxide solution before beginning any treatment.
During this unprecedented time, we ask that our patients be patient with our office. Should you have any more concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 916-341-0575.

We strongly feel that pediatric dental care is essential for giving children the proper foundation for a healthy life, from childhood through adolescence and beyond. SNAHC’s dental providers and staff understand that children are often frightened at the thought of seeing a dentist-especially if it is their first visit. We are committed to ensuring all pediatric patients are comfortable and have the best experience possible at SNAHC.
Parents, you can help reduce your child’s risk of tooth decay by:
- Scheduling a visit with a dentist between one and two years of age to start preventative care such as sealants and fluoride treatment.
- If your child craves a snack, offer them nutritious foods.
- If your children chew gum, make it sugarless.
- Instead of soft drinks, choose water and low-fat milk
- Help your children develop good brushing and flossing habits.
- Schedule regular dental visits.
Referrals to specialists are made when necessary.

SNAHC currently partners with several local dental school programs. One such partnership is with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Dentistry to provide direct patient support for three-week rotations. Dental students from Western University in Pomona, California also support our dental providers for seven-week rotations. Students from the Sacramento City College Dental Hygiene Program can be seen in our dental clinic every Monday for seven months out of the year.
Our health center also began an onsite partnership with Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) for mothers and their children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional and therefore, dental risk. This partnership provides access to early oral health education and prevention for at-risk mothers and their children.
