Your Dental Health Is Important, And Our Patient’s Safety Is Our Top Priority

To Our Valued Patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. 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. 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 you may have seen this during your visits to our office.  Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

Before you leave the house: brush your teeth. use the bathroom & grab your mask.

Call or text to check in when you arrive to the office and wait in your car. We will let you know when we’re ready for you!

We will measure your temperature upon arrival.

We will be asking you some screening questions related to COVID-19 as a precaution

Please use hand sanitizer when we enter the office. You may be asked to gargle with 1% hydrogen peroxide (to decrease airborne germs while we work on your smile).

only patients with appointments (and one guardian of young patients or patients needing assistance) may come into the office.

Please allow us time to thoroughly disinfect between patients.

We have removed communal items from the waiting room including toys, magazines, and coffee stations.

Social distancing measure must be followed – keep 6 feet of distance at all times.

Please reschedule if you or anyone you are in close contact with has experienced  symptoms or been sick in the last 2 weeks
