WE ARE OPEN!
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health! Our communities have been through a lot over the past few years, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our office’s commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice. We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest environment for our patients and their family members.
During this time, we have implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and staff.
Upon scheduling an appointment, our treatment coordinators will confirm that you are feeling well. We may postpone treatment for any patient who has experienced or been in contact with someone who has experienced the following symptoms within 14 days of the scheduled appointment date: fever, cough, loss of taste and/or smell, flu-like symptoms, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, and fatigue.
We will be scheduling appointments in a manner that promotes social distancing and allows for adequate time for us to disinfect all areas of use in between patient appointments.
Upon arrival at our office, text us (or call if needed) before entering the office to let us know you have arrived. We will text or call you once we are ready for you to enter.
We ask that patients enter the office unaccompanied, if possible. For those patients who need a guardian to accompany them, we ask that this be limited to a single family member.
Every person entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and will be asked to sanitize their hands immediately upon entry.
Please take your temperature the morning of your appointment. We may use a contactless thermometer upon your arrival.
Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, charging stations, children’s toys, etc., since these items are difficult to clean and disinfect adequately.
Clear plastic barriers (sneeze guards) have been installed in the reception area to minimize exposure to airborne pathogens.
OSO-Pure Medical-grade High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) air purifiers have been installed in each treatment room to help improve the air quality in the area for all patients, family members, and staff.
ADS Extraoral Suction Units and Dryshield Intraoral Suction Units will be used during procedures as well.
Our doctors and staff will be wearing all of the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE), including Aramark Fluid Resistant Medical Lab Gowns, K/N95 Masks, safety glasses and/or visors.
Thank you for being a part of our dental family! We value your loyalty and look forward to continue caring for our patients, neighbors, and friends.
