As you know, we have always been committed to your health. Our hygiene practices are stringent at all times. We are doing everything we can to assist with the containment of the COVID-19 virus.
At the present time, members of our team are available every day to see anyone in our community with a dental emergency. We want to do our part to help keep the ER at hospital accessible for other emergencies. If you have a dental emergency, please call us and we will help you.
For additional comfort, we want to assure you that we have asked any staff exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness or fever to stay home and notify their physician. We also ask any patient with symptoms or recent travel to an affected area to delay their visit appropriately.
COVID-19 Infection Control Measures
We are closely following CDC protocols and recommendations to safely serve you, and to care for our staff and community. Our infection control measures in the office include:
- Using hospital-grade disinfectant wipes
- Disinfecting treatment rooms after each patient (including dental chairs)
- Frequently disinfecting high-traffic areas such as counters, general seating, and bathroom areas
- Leaving doors propped open for minimal handling
- Reducing the use of our waiting area
- Minimizing waiting time
- Having patients wait in their own cars
- Showing patients directly to treatment rooms upon entry to the office
- Doing patient checkouts at dental chairs to eliminate stops at the front desk
When will the office resume routine dental care?
We look forward to reopening for routine dental care as soon as we receive official guidance to do so. In the meantime, we are available each day for patients with dental emergencies. At the present time, we hope to resume our normal operating schedule on or around April 30, 2020. In the meantime, we will continue to see patients with dental emergencies. We also anticipate that guidance from governmental agencies could change over the coming days and weeks, and we will continue to closely monitor the situation and adjust our operations to prioritize the health and safety of our patients and staff. We will also post updates as they occur.
Thanks for understanding. Together, we’ll get through this.
