Coronavirus Update

We are back to serving the community!

While many things have changed our commitment to your safety is always our priority.

  • We will be pre-screening all patients upon booking and taking temperatures upon arrival where hand sanitizer will be available.
  • We will be expediting patient check-outs to control patient flow and maintain social distancing.
  • High contact areas are continuously being disinfected and we have installed plexiglass barriers at our front desk. 
  • Medical-grade air purifiers and enclosed treatment rooms have been installed.
  • Our team will be wearing all the necessary PPE for extra safety and your comfort.
  • We will not be accepting walk-in appointments at this time to ensure social distancing guidelines.

We follow routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, using cleaners and water to pre-clean surfaces prior to applying an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, as well as appropriate sterilization of all tools and equipment. We also use new facemasks and gloves for each patient per guidelines set by the FDA and CDC.

If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office if you experience any of the following:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Travel within the past 14 days to affected geographical regions

We will discuss your health status, the dental treatment you require, and whether or not visiting our office will be safe for you, our other patients, and our staff.

When you visit our office, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment, rather than too early. This will minimize the amount of time you spend in our waiting room or reception area. If you have respiratory symptoms, we will ask that you wear a facemask.

  

How can you prevent contracting or spreading COVID-19?

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not use your hands.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Calling in advance will enable your healthcare provider to direct you quickly to the right health facility.
