Covid pop-up message

Dear Patients,

We hope you are all staying well. As we all enter this uncertain time together, we want to do our part to prepare and protect our patients and staff from COVID-19.

What we are doing to keep you safe:

  • Screening for symptoms: When you arrive at the office we’ll take your temperature and review possible symptoms to make sure that you are getting the appropriate care.
  • Maintain social distancing: You may be asked to wait in your car until you have been screened or a room is ready.  In the office we ask that you wear a mask until we begin treatment.  There may be a clear screen to separate you from our staff and we may keep you apart from other patients in the reception area and halls.
  • Isolate treatment rooms: Some rooms will have installed drapes to separate your treatment area from hallways or other treatment areas.  Special attention is being given to how air circulates and is managed.
  • Reduce virus containing aerosols: The office will utilize new techniques to reduce the amount of aerosol in the air or the amount of virus in the aerosol.  This could include the use of rubber dams, special vacuum devices or air filtration units.
  • Disinfect thoroughly: Dental offices always take precautions to prevent the spread of disease, but during the pandemic we will be taking extra time to clean surfaces that might be contaminated by airborne viruses.  You may also see more disposable barriers protecting surfaces in treatment rooms.
  • Monitor your health: After your dental visit you will be asked to report any symptoms that may arise in the weeks following.  Dental offices can play a role in stemming community transmission by making sure that you receive prompt testing and treatment.

Thank you.
