(Current and New)

As part of our dental family, we want to assure you our number one goal is your safety and the safety of all our patients and staff. In light of this, we will have made some changes I want you to be aware of that will keep you safe:

Upon arrival, we will ask you to call or texts from your vehicle. When your room and clinician are ready, we will notify you. In this way, we will limit the number of people gathering inside the practice and protect you by creating social distancing

 You will also notice the practice will feel less busy – because we are staggering patients as an additional measure to limit interactions

 We are reserving our reception area for those patients arriving via transportation other than their own, or who cannot wait in their vehicle.

 While we love seeing family members, any guests accompanying patients to their appointments may need to wait in their vehicle. We will limit the number of nonessential individuals entrance to our practice

 When you arrive, our Hygienist or assistant(s) can tell you about the new equipment we have installed to further protect you

 You will also see an additional $12 fee that will cover the personal protective equipment design for your appointment specifically to keep you safe

 In the clinic area, we have equipped each operatory with medical grade air purifiers, reduce aerosis through additional suction, have new hide vacuum suction devices…

 We have additional personal protection equipment

 We have removed all nonessential items from each operatory and the lobby area for greater sterilization access

 We now have an antiviral pre-procedural rinse, recommended by the CDC and the ADA, which I will provide you

 Every surface, door handle, and virtually anything that can be touched is sterilized after each patient, as part of our daily routine

 We also take our own temperatures daily, as a precaution, in addition to taking yours

 Please know we have always strictly followed CDC and ADA guidelines – but this is a new virus requiring new safety measures, and we are incorporating heightened sterilization protocols in response to this threat

We are committed to doing everything we can do to create a sterile environment to protect you, and us, from airborne viruses!

Stay Blessed, Stay Safe! On the 1’s (floss 1 x daily) and 2’s (brush at least 2 x day)...
