Our mission is to provide lifelong care for our patients with an emphasis on prevention and maintenance. Our staff is trained in the most modern techniques and employs the state of the art when planning individual treatment plans for every patient. We have built our practice on the referrals of our own patients and we take pride in knowing that our patients have such a great trust in us.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained constant:
our unyielding commitment to your safety and well-being.
At your next visit, you may notice a few changes as we update some protocols to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Infection Control Protocols
The application of the strictest, evidenced-based universal infection control measures has always been the top priority for our practice, and we will continue to follow the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control. As you approach your next appointment, these are a few changes you may notice:
We encourage anyone entering the office to use their own face covering / mask. This also includes minors. We have masks available for anyone who requests one.
We have hand sanitizer available that we will encourage you use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed. We continue to encourage hand washing upon arrival at our office.
We will be regularly cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces in the reception area including door handles. We are also using high volume, medical grade HEPA-13 filters throughout the office.
You may see that our waiting room is not currently offering magazines since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
We are unable to provide dental treatment to anyone who is a confirmed COVID-19 case, is suspected to have COVID-19 or has come into contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case and has not been tested. If you are unsure, or even if you have cold and flu-like symptoms, please contact our office to reschedule your appointment. It is safer for our clinic and the community as a whole, if we defer your appointment by a few weeks, where there is even the slightest potential for COVID-19 transmission.
Thank you in advance for your compliance and consideration of all of these requirements. We understand the burden that this has on you and your family and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we adhere to these guidelines. If you have any questions in regards to these new protocols, please feel free to reach out to us.
Finally, thank you for continuing to entrust your dental care to our experienced team. We sincerely appreciate your trust and loyalty and very much look forward to welcoming you back into our practice.
