Changes for our Patients due to Covid-19

As we welcome you back to our office, we want to reassure you that your safety is our number one goal.

We are following advice and guidance from the CDC and our professional organizations to make changes to keep you, our other patients and our staff safe from infection.

Some changes include:
• Our staff will ask you screening questions during confirmation for your appointment and before we begin care. Patients with chronic illnesses or patients older than 60 carry an increased risk of a severe case if they acquire COVID-19. Patients over 60 or chronic illness should understand the risk of being out in public during the pandemic.
• Please use the hand sanitizer wipes that we have available at our entry before coming into the office and please use the wipe to open the door.
• We have removed hard-to-disinfect items in the waiting room and have reduced our seating to allow for appropriate social distancing.
• We will ask you to call us upon your arrival and we may ask you to wait in the car instead of the waiting room.
• We will ask that you come alone to your appointment. If necessary, one caregiver or family member may come in with a patient.
• We are required to take your temperature before your appointment.
• You will see that all of us, including our patient coordinators who normally greet you with a smile, will be wearing masks.
• It is required that everyone who enters the office to wear a face covering or mask.
• We will be employing different clinical techniques and tools to reduce the production and spread of aerosols during your dental care. For some of our patients these techniques will not be new.
• You will be asked to report any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 to our office within 14 days of your visit.
