We are Open and here to help: A Note About COVID-19

To all our patients and guests,

 

We know this is a nerve-racking time, and we get it- the last thing any of us want to do is expose ourselves to or spread disease. The good news is that our patient’s safety and health has been our highest priority for years, long before the outbreak of COVID-19.

 

Here’s an idea of the detailed care we put into each and every procedure:

  • Without fail, we wear single-use gloves and surgical masks along with eye protection. 

  • Our equipment is either single-use or meticulously sterilized in accordance with and often beyond FDA guidelines. 

  • Every work surface and item touched throughout patient interactions are cleaned with a high-quality disinfectant that kills spores, bacteria, and viruses.

  • Regardless of the interaction, our team thoroughly washes their hands before every patient encounter.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve implemented a few additional safeguards:

  • Each patient will have their temperature checked shortly after being brought back into an operatory.

  • Only the patient or a close representative responsible for the well-being of the patient is allowed past reception. 

  • We have implemented a Virtual Waiting Room for our patients or guests that prefer to distance themselves from others as much as possible and wait in their vehicles.  

  • Our office is now a Hand-Shake Free zone as a simple yet effective way to prevent the spread of germs.

In an overabundance of caution, we are also asking the following screening questions of every person that schedules an appointment over the phone or enters our practice:

  • In the last week have you experienced fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing?

  • Have you traveled internationally within the last three months?

  • Have you had close contact with a person who is under investigation or confirmed to have contracted COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

We reschedule appointments for patients that answer “yes” to any of these questions.

We know COVID-19 is serious but we also know that dental health, especially when pain is involved, shouldn’t be put on hold. It is our duty and honor to care for our patients to the best of our abilities, respecting their decision to entrust us with their care by providing the safest environment possible.
