COVID-19 Update

Our community has been through a lot over the last year, 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. These changes have been made to help protect our patients and staff. 

  • Please plan to bring a mask or face covering to wear into the building once you’ve gone through the screening process

  • Prior to your visit we will be calling to do pre-screening and payments over the phone due to our waiting room being closed

  • If at anytime before your appointment you begin to have cold or flu symptoms, please call us immediately.

    • At both locations: We are asking all patients to remain in their cars and call our office number. One of our team members will greet you at your car to start the check in process

      • Check in process: Your temperature will be taken. We will have screening paperwork for you to fill out from the American Dental Association

    • We are requesting that only the patient will come into the office for their appointment                        

      • Please call the office 1-2 days prior to your appointment if special arrangements are needed     

  • We are following the full COVID-19 interim guidelines from the American Dental Association for infection control

    1. Our team members will have temperature readings taken twice daily and will be screened upon arrival each day

    2. Everyone in the office will be wearing a mask and we will be wiping down all communal surfaces in between patients including pens, clipboards, light switches.

       

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move to the re-opening phase. Please call us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
