As we begin reopening our practice for non-emergency appointments, you will notice that we have changed a few of our procedures to follow the American Dental Association’s guidelines for reopening. This is because we want to keep our patients and our staff safe by doing our part to reduce and prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions about our new safety measures, please don’t hesitate to give our office a call and we will be happy to offer clarification.Contact Us
When you arrive for your appointment, please call our practice to let us know that you have arrived, and we will let you know when we are ready for you to come in. We have a short screening process that we are asking both our staff and our patients to complete before they enter the office. Once you have confirmed that you have not been recently exposed to COVID-19 to the best of your knowledge and you are not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, we will take your temperature to ensure that it falls within a normal range.
Once the screening process is complete, we will walk you straight to your treatment room, which eliminates the need for patients to congregate in our waiting room. We are asking that patients wear face masks while walking to and from their treatment rooms, and if you do not have one, please request one when you arrive. Our air filtration system will be running at all times during our office hours to ensure that the air is as clean as possible, and we will also be disinfecting treatment rooms after every single patient.
We are reserving early morning appointments just for seniors and health vulnerable patients as an extra safety precaution, as there tend to be fewer patients and staff members when our practice first opens. If you are in one of these groups and you would like to come in early, please let us know when you are scheduling your appointment. Our team will also be following the general coronavirus prevention guidelines, which includes frequent handwashing and wearing protective gear.
