We are open and seeing patients!
Following guidelines as outlined by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and mandated by the state, we have implemented additional measures to ensure optimal safety during your dental visit:
Before your arrival, the office has been prepared by having all high touch areas carefully disinfected with effective microbial sanitizers. This process is repeated in-between each patient.
The appointment times will be longer, and it might mean that there are fewer appointment options as we need extra time between patients to clean and sanitize properly and to allow for social distancing.
Each team member has donned fresh protective gear and had their temperature recorded. The office is clean, safe, and ready for your visit.
Your visit to the dental office begins by having you call the office upon your arrival. As much as we love having our patients gather in our reception area, we are allowing only one patient at a time as you check in. We ask upon entering the office that you wear a mask. We will be happy to provide a mask if needed.
Please use the hand sanitizing tissue provided at the front door to grasp the door handle as you enter. As we check you in, we’ll provide you a COVID-19 screening questionnaire and take your temperature using a no-touch thermometer. You will then be escorted to your private treatment room for your dental experience.
During treatment, you may notice some enhancements in the process. In addition to our rock-solid infection control systems we have implemented for years, we have doubled our high-volume evacuation effectively trapping all potential environmental hazards.
We also are now utilizing the top of the line DentAirVac system which is designed to remove potentially toxic vapors and particles away from the immediate breathing area of the doctor, assistant, hygienist, and patient.
The air in your personal space will be ultra-purified. The team will be wearing additional personal protective equipment designed to break any potential transmission of disease causing micro pathogens.
What this means for our patients is a resumption of the same excellent restorative, esthetic, and preventive care in the safest and most secure environment available anywhere.
We look forward to seeing you!
