Our Office’s Safety Precautions
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice! We have, and will continue to follow, the infection control regulations of the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). During this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that we will continue to adhere to our stringent infection control protocols and make any modifications in response to each agencies recommendations.
There are several common sense recommendations we have implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
- Screening patients for signs or symptoms of infection when we update their medical histories.
- Making sure our masks, gloves, and eye protection are appropriate for the procedures performed.
- Cleaning and disinfecting public areas frequently, including door handles and chairs.
- Limiting contact with various surfaces throughout the office suite
If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office if you experience any of the following:
- Shortness of breath
- Flu like symptoms including gastro-intestinal upset, headache, fatigue
- Recently lost your sense of taste and/or smell
- Had contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19
- Are you currently waiting for a COVID-19 test result?
- Travel within the past 14 days to affected geographical regions
We will discuss your health status, the dental treatment you require, and whether or not visiting our office will be safe for you, our other patients, and our staff.
When you visit our office, please follow these check-in procedures which have been implemented for your safety:
- Please call one of our front desk team members from your car when you arrive in the parking lot or the building lobby. At that time, you will be asked several simple health screening questions.
- Please wear a mask or other face covering into the building and office.
- As we are trying to respect social distancing rules, we ask that only the person who has an appointment enter the office. We understand that parents will have to bring their children but we recommend you don't bring other siblings.
- Your temperature will be taken before being seen for your appointment.
How can you prevent contracting or spreading COVID-19?
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not use your hands.
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Calling in advance will allow your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility.
