In these unusual times, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing extensive personal protective gear, including N95 masks. We utilize hospital-grade disinfectants on hard surfaces and even on our carpeting and upholstery, and strictly adhere to the latest sterilization protocols. We have distributed air filtration devices throughout the office which are capable of filtering at the submicron level, as well as employing UV-C light to destroy viruses and bacteria at the DNA level. We use many single-use disposable materials to reduce possibility of infection transmission. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
We have instituted new policies to keep you safe during your appointment:
When you arrive for your next dental appointment, you will be required to have your temperature taken, and to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire. If your temperature is 100.4 F or greater we will not be able to see you.
We ask that you enter our office building with a mask on. If you do not have a mask, we can provide you with one!
To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has had any of the following within the last 14 days:
Fever of over 100.4 F
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Flu-like symptoms such as chills, body aches or fatigue
Loss of sense of taste or smell
A positive COVID-19 Diagnosis
Close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone safe and healthy. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
Each of the members of our small friendly team of professionals has many years of experience in delivering excellent dental care. We work to help you understand what is going on in your mouth, how to maintain or improve it, and how to get the care you need using any insurance benefits you might have.
