Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our office’s commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice. We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest environment for our patients and their family members.
We request that all our patients follow the following safety guidelines:
- Register at home i.e. fill out personal information and medical history forms that will be e-mailed to you.
- Fill out the COVID-19 questionnaire that will be emailed to you. This questionnaire must be completed before you arrive at the office.
Note: We will postpone treatment for any patient who has experienced or has been in contact with someone who has experienced the following symptoms within 14 days of the scheduled appointment date: fever, cough, loss of taste and/or smell, flu-like symptoms, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, and fatigue. In addition, If you are over the age of 65 and have preexisting health conditions (as recommended by CDC) such as diabetes, chronic lung disease or asthma, serious heart conditions, are immunocompromised, or chronic kidney or liver disease, we recommend you try to delay treatment unless deemed necessary by your referring doctor.
- Please call us on the phone when you arrive at our building to let us know that you are outside. We will then let you know when we are ready for you to enter safely.
- Please arrive unaccompanied, if possible. For those patients like children who require a parent or the elderly who require an aide to accompany them, we ask that this be limited to a single accompanying member.
- Every patient entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and gloves and will be asked to sanitize their hands immediately upon entry. If you do not have a mask and gloves let us know prior to entering and we will provide you one at the door.
- Please take your temperature the morning of your appointment and let us know if it is high prior to your appointment. We will confirm no fever with a contactless thermometer upon your arrival and take oxygen saturation levels.
- We will also have our patients rinse with a biocompatible oral rinse disinfecting solution in our office prior to evaluation and treatment.
Note: The following safety precautions have been taken to ensure your safety: Clear plastic screens (sneeze guards) have been installed at the front desk to minimize exposure to airborne pathogens, Medical-grade High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) air purifiers from Medify ie.m40 and IQ Air pro health plus .003 micron intake units have been installed in the office to help improve the air quality in the area for all patients, family members, and staff.
High speed Extraoral Dental Evacuation units with UV disinfection have been installed chairside from Iq air and interdental for your safety as well. Our doctor and staff will be wearing all of the recommended PPE’s including:N95 and Kn95 masks, surgical masks above, facial shields, ocular goggles, head coverings, shoe coverings, surgical gowns, full coverage suits, barriers. Disinfection with cavicide, hydrochloric acid fogging, and professional cleaning services will all be utilized to maximize your safety.
