I hope you and your families are safe and in good health. The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed our lives and how we do our day to day living and business. Safety has always been a top priority in our office. We have set up some steps to make sure that when you receive care in our office, it is both safe and comfortable.
Our office follows the infection control and prevention recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHA).
In an attempt to only allow one person in the reception/waiting room, we ask that you do the following:
1. Open the front door and make sure no one is in the waiting area, or call from your cell phone when you arrive.
2. Walk directly to the restroom:
A. Wash your hands
B. Gargle with mouth wash
C. Put a mask on if you did not bring your own
3. Go to the table outside of the restroom:
A. Take a pen and sign in (keep the pen, they are new and have never been used)
B. Take your temperature
C. Answer the questionnaire
4. Please have a seat or you may choose to wait in your car if you have a cell phone until an assistant calls you back.
My staff and I will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) necessary for the procedures that need to be completed.
We are doing many things that you may not see, such as, HEPA filtered air purifiers in all of our rooms, UV lights and a strong suction system to remove airborne droplets. We are wiping down all surfaces that are being touched, from the front doors to the back doors, after each patient with cleaning agents that kill virus and bacteria.
The office is completely sterilized with a ULV Fogger using Hypochlorous acid which is nontoxic and approved by the FDA.
Our primary goal is to keep you, my staff and myself healthy.
STAY SAFE BE HEALTHY
