3 Tips for Visting During COVID
What are you doing to ensure my children are safe at the office due to COVID-19?
Your safety remains our top priority. We have implemented additional safety and sanitization measures in accordance with O.S.H.A. and CDC guidelines to protect you and our team:
Preemptive screenings –
All patients and staff members will be screened and have temperatures taken upon arrival. Patients will be asked to complete additional health history information.
All patients will be asked to come to the office door upon arrival for an appointment and wait for a staff member before entering the practice. It is important that appropriate steps are taken to minimize the number of people in our office and complete specific screening steps prior to entering, in accordance with CDC, state, and O.S.H.A. regulations.
Continued social distancing practices
Once your checked-in for your appointment, please wait outside the office and we will text or call to let you know the team is ready to begin your appointment. Companions of patients will be asked to wait outside of the office during a patient’s appointment. One parent or guardian will be allowed to accompany a minor patient.
Adherence to standard sterile healthcare environment protocols
including hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment (e.g. gloves, masks, face shields, eyewear), respiratory hygiene, sharps safety, safe injection practices (when applicable), sterile instruments and devices, and clean and disinfected environmental surfaces and common areas. Patients will be asked to wear a mask to their appointment, with no exceptions unless under the age of 2.
We want you to feel confident and comfortable visiting our office for your dental appointments. Maintaining your oral health is important to your overall health.
