Infection control is our top priority and as always, we follow all universal infection prevention measures recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The following new protocols have been put into action here in our office to protect our patients as well as staff from risks associated with COVID-19:
• Our office will communicate with you prior to your appointment to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you arrive in the office. If you or anyone in your family is feeling sick, or has been exposed to COVID, please reschedule.
• When you arrive for your appointment, please call or text us to let us know you’re here and which parking space you are in before entering the office. When the clinical team is ready to seat you, we will call or text you to enter the office. To the greatest extent possible, we want to eliminate patients in our waiting room.
• Please wear a mask or face covering when you come to your appointment.
• You will see some additional changes throughout the office for your protection. HEPA air purifiers have been placed in every room.
We look forward to seeing you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about our protocols.
