Safely Visit the Dentist during Covid

The health and safety of our patients are

our top priority.

We hope this letter finds you and your family in

good health. Our community has been through a

lot over the last few months. While many things

have changed, one thing has remained the same:

our commitment to your safety. We appreciate

your patience and understanding when it comes

to scheduling/rescheduling your appointment.

Infection control has always been a top priority

for our practice as you have seen during your

visits to our office. Our infection control

processes are both safe and comfortable. We

want to tell you about the stringent infection

control, and safety measures we will follow in our

practice to keep patients and staff safe. We do

not want you be hesitant of dental treatment and

know that we are well prepared for your visit.

Our office follows infection control

recommendations made by the American Dental

Associate (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.

Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing

between patients. We will be minimizing time in waiting areas

and maintaining low patient volume.

We will have fewer and longer appointments. Guests will no

longer be permitted in the waiting room unless accompanying

a child or someone needing assistance.

At the time of your appointment, we would like you to

telephone us from your car, and when given clearance, you

may enter the dental office.

You will be contacted beforehand to be asked some

screening questions.

Your temperature will be taken with an infrared thermometer

when entering the office.

We are mandating a mask or face covering for all patients at

all times, other than when actually working in your mouth.

We are mandating a mask for all doctors and employees at

all times.

We have hand sanitizer to be used when you enter the office.

You will also find some in the reception area as well as the

operatories.

In addition, all our treatment rooms are now equipped with

HEPA Filtration Air Sanitizers with UV-C lights which eliminate

99.9% of Bacteria and viruses.

All rooms will be cleaned and sanitized after each patient as

well as frequently touched areas.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to

answer any questions you may have about the steps we take

to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. With

these assurances we hope you do not delay any dental care.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty

and look forward to welcoming back all our patients, neighbors,

and friends. If you have any questions or concerns, please call

our office. We want to ensure your safety and also ensure you

are comfortable with you upcoming visit.

and procedures to prioritize your safety:
