Our Precautions to Protect You From Covid-19

Our New Protocol To Protect You Against Covid-19 By Your Dentist In Roseville, Ca.

At Sierra Gate Family Dental, we are proud to inform you of the steps we took to make sure all of our patients are protected against COVID-19. Our patient safety comes first. There are a couple COVID-19 Precautions in place which we will cover it in this page. Please make sure to watch the provided video about what to expect when you arrive at our office.


BEFORE your appointment:

When confirming your appointment, please be sure you have :

  • No signs or symptoms of COVID
  • No fever
  • Have not been recently exposed in the 10 days prior to your appointment

If any of these are Yes please call our office so we can discuss with you.

DAY OF your appointment (please maintain 6' social distance):

Step 1: A virtual Waiting room is available for those who are at high risk, by waiting in your car or the hallway: Just call us upon arrival

Step 2: Sanitize your hands upon entry

Step 3: Please wear mask while in our office common areas

AFTER your appointment:

Our front office team will administer a final 14-day post-appointment Covid-19 Questionnaire to help the tracing protocol and to ensure each patient has no symptoms after leaving our office.

We follow OSHA’s Protocols against COVID-19 in order to protect our patients, all of our licensed team members will be equipped with the following PPE protocol when you receive treatment:

  • Disposable gowns
  • A surgical mask on top of our N95 mask, these surgical masks will be changed after every patient.
  • Goggles or Loups
  • Surgical cap
  • Face shield

Each room is isolated with Zipwall. This allows us to prevent and take control of the aerosol-generating procedures and keep it from spreading anywhere else in the office. Upon completion of all patient interactions total sanitation of the room takes place.


HOCL is the scientific formula for hypochlorous acid, a weak acid similar to that of a mild citrus juice, and is made naturally by white blood cells in all mammals for healing and protection.

HOCL is recommended and mentioned in List N as a disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). The single most important feature of hypochlorous acid is that it is unusually efficient in eliminating viruses. Research at an FDA-approved lab proved that electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid can kill norovirus in less than one minute at 50 ppm.

National and international reference laboratories have proven that HOCL works very well against viruses, including norovirus and human coronaviruses. One study is of particular interest: in 2016, researchers at the University of Washington School of Public Health found that HOCL was more than 99.999 percent effective in eliminating coronavirus OC43, which is similar to COVID-19.

With modern technology, HOCL can be generated in unlimited quantities using only electricity, table salt, and water, and EcoloxTech makes equipment for customers to do it themselves and it is FDA-cleared for washing fish and seafood, fruits and vegetables, and sanitation of food prep surfaces without rinsing (use at home to wash all your vegetables and fruit).

HOCl is intrinsically safe, as it is non-irritant and the human body produces the same molecule for self-defense. In fact, it is so safe to inhale that it is being evaluated as a treatment for throat and lung infections.

At Sierra Gate Family Dental, we believe that the COVID-19 health challenge calls for expanded sanitizing protocols. Electrolyzed water - also known as hypochlorous acid (HOCl) - is a highly effective and intrinsically safe sanitizing agent, and it can be generated in unlimited quantities with technology recently purchased from the Miami-based manufacturer EcoloxTech. We use 200 ppm concentration according to the manufacturer's instructions. Following each patient, we utilize the fogger to sanitize each room. Thanks to Zipwalls, the fogged Hypochlorous acid can be contained to kill potential COVID-19 particulates followed by regular cleaning and disinfecting procedure.
