COVID-19 safety protocols
What To Expect From Your Visit
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We have always upheld the highest standards dictated by the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure your safety and comfort. We also follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
Due to the current situation, we have implemented a thorough screening process for patients and team members. This screening process includes temperature checks, as well as answering a screening questionnaire prior to your appointment and when you arrive for your appointment before entering our office. All patients will also be wearing masks in the office when treatment is not occurring. There have been updated guidelines from the CDC regarding protective equipment that all doctors and team members will be wearing, including special masks and face shields. Additionally, appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
