In an effort to support national efforts to fight the COVID- 19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community:
We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a way to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
We will contact all patients prior to their appointment to discuss their health status, health screening protocols, and confirm whether the appointment should be kept. Of course, please call us right away if you have a dental emergency or need immediate care. We ask that all patients fill out online registration prior to their dental appointment. This will allow us to minimize any person to person interaction.
For the safety of our staff and patients, we are practicing social distancing by limiting the number of people inside the office. Please contact the office once you have arrived so we can best guide you when to come inside. We are asking for all patients to come alone to help us limit the number of people inside the office. We installed a negative pressure in every operator room. Also, we installed a HEPA filter inside our office. The negative pressure sucked contaminated air out of the room with exhaust systems, which are built with HEPA Filters that clean the air before it is pumped outside of and away from our office. HEPA filters are designed to remove 99.97 percent of unhealthy particles in the air.
We will be taking the temperature of all staff and patients. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher and/or have any symptoms as Covid-19, will be asked to reschedule. We have hand sanitizer available in every room and station.
The safety and well-being of our patients continue to be our primary concern. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community.
