Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. We are pleased to announce that as of June 15, 2020 our office is open to all dental and hygiene appointments.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and we hope you have seen this during your visits to our office. Our office has and will continue to follow infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the CDC and the OSHA.
To ensure the continued safety of our patients and staff, you will notice some changes when it is time for your next appointment. For example:
Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some pre-screening questions.
Upon arrival at the office, please remain in your car and call the office when you have arrived for your scheduled appointment.
Please wear a mask to your appointment until further notice.
We will take vital signs and ask screening questions at the beginning of your appointment. An antiseptic mouth rinse will be given at the start of each appointment.
We will allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
The staff will be using the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) whenever appropriate and available.
We have outfitted our office with an air purification system which utilizes ultra-HEPA filtration as an added safety measure.
Although no one can completely eliminate the risk of infection, our office is committed to making your dental visit as safe as possible. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
