Keeping You and Your Smile Safe
We’ve missed your smile and can’t wait to reopen and welcome our patients back to our office. However, your health and safety is still our top priority.
Dental treatment will look a little different for the time being. But we’re working hard to ensure you and our team can safely keep your smile healthy.
Here are some of the changes you can expect:
We’ll be taking these additional steps to keep our office safe:
- All team members will wear masks and all appropriate PPE at all times.
- All team members will wash their hands when they enter the office and after each appointment.
- All surfaces will be disinfected thoroughly during the day.
- 6 ft. social distancing will be strictly enforced. Patients should ALWAYS be kept at least 6 feet from other patients and/or team members unless patients or team members are wearing appropriate PPE.
- Doors will remain open when possible to reduce shared surface contact.
- Patients will be brought into the office by a team member one at a time following appropriate PPE and screening guidelines.
- No reading materials will be provided to patients. Patients may bring in their own reading material, and it must be kept on their person or with their belongings at all times. Any area in the treatment room or the office that has been touched by the patient’s personal belongings will be sanitized and disinfected.
- All team members will complete a health screening and have their temperature taken when they arrive. No team member will be allowed to work if they have a fever higher than 100.4 degrees or any other symptoms of COVID-19.
- No one will be allowed in the reception area at any time.
- Any bathroom in the office will be sanitized by the team after each use.
Reschedule If You’re Sick
Please reschedule your appointment if anyone in your family is experiencing any of the following symptoms, or if you’ve come in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you don’t have a temperature but have other risk factors, you’ll be rescheduled for another day, 14 + days, or longer.
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking and/or chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
