With 2021 well underway, we just wanted to take some time to thank you for your continued trust in our office. We have been working tirelessly to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you, your family, and friends during these difficult times.
As we move forward with positivity and hope for a return to normalcy, we would like to inform you of the following:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have included dental staff in their recommendation to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
Our practitioners are pleased to announce that they have received their COVID-19 vaccination shot.
We firmly believe that this is the next step in returning to what was once our normal day to day operations. Our top priority has, and always will be, the safety of our staff and patients. Today, we can confidently say that our office continued to hold true to one of our core values.
We look forward to seeing your smiles in 2021!
Beyond the CDC's standards for COVID-19, our team is taking extra precautions to keep you healthy.
Welcome to our practice! We are honored that you have chosen us for your dental needs. With the changing health climate amidst the COVID19 pandemic, we continue to provide safe and excellent care. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.
Our office will communicate with you before your appointment to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office and your temperature will be taken. We also want to assure you all of our team members will be screened daily when reporting to work.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and coffee service, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. We will do our best to 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.
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.
You also may notice that all of our team members look different. They will be using additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as goggles, face masks, face shields and gowns. In addition, our office has individual treatment suites so you will never receive any dental treatment in an open space with other patients. After treatment ends, any additional appointments will be made in the dental suite to expedite your check out process.
At the end of your appointment, the front desk will provide you with a receipt from behind installed protective barriers.
