Important Information Regarding COVID-19
We hope you are staying safe and healthy! As you know your care and safety and the safety of our team is our top priority. We currently have modified our schedule to accommodate emergency patients only. If you have any questions regarding your dental care or have urgent concerns, please give us a call. We are here for you and will make sure that your needs are taken care of. Thank you for being our patient!
Additionally, we are offering virtual office consultations:
We are aware and understand the fast growing concerns and worry about COVID-19. We want to assure you all that the health, well-being, and safety of all of our patients and team members is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and taking the most current medical updates into account regarding our practice and patient care.
Our office is bound by and adheres to strict Universal Precautions, OSHA regulations, and CDC standards for disinfection and sterilization. We will continue to reinforce those standards, even going above & beyond them as we always have.
-We use hospital level disinfection in all areas of our office, including the reception area surfaces, door handles, reception area furniture, phones, pens.
-All instruments are sterilized.
-Every team member is suited with the proper personal protective equipment for themselves, and our patients.
We are kindly asking our patients to assist us in reducing the risk of exposure. As more people are being impacted by the COVID-19, we recognize the need to do our best to keep our patients, team, and neighbors healthy. To that end, we are instituting the following additional preventative measures and will continue to adapt as we receive more information on COVID-19:
- We will ask you to wash your hands upon entering the office.
- We will ask that you do not bring anyone with you to appointment (unless you are escorting a minor or a patient in medical necessity) as we try to limit the amount of people in the reception area.
- Please rinse with Hydrogen Peroxide solution for 1 minute prior to your procedure (we will have this waiting for you chairside).
- We ask you if you are feeling sick or have recently traveled.
If you or someone close to you has recently traveled outside the United States, or has not been feeling well (sluggish, exhibiting any respiratory symptoms, etc), we will reappoint you when you are feeling better!
We appreciate your understanding and will keep you updated. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call our offices and speak with a member of our team. We wish you and your loved ones well and know that we will overcome this, together, and emerge stronger than ever before.
