COVID-19 Policies

COVID-19 Policies

The American Dental Association has recommended that all dental offices limit the themselves to only providing emergency treatment.  We will be providing emergency care for patients who have a referral from a general dentist.  

In an effort to follow the latest guidance from the CDC and to do our part to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, we will be implementing the following adjustments to our office routines. We appreciate you and are grateful for your efforts to join us in confronting this emerging public health crisis.

1. ALL individuals (patients and staff) will be screened for illness before entering the office. If you have any symptoms including, but not limited to fever, cough, & shortness of breath, please call our office and reschedule your appointment. For your safety and others, we will be asking you to take your temperature prior to arrive to our office and to reschedule if it is elevated.

2. Your appointment may be rescheduled to accommodate the triage of our most urgent patients. We appreciate your understanding.

3. We anticipate adjusting appointment times and lengths in order to ensure that patients do not need to wait in our waiting room or interact with other patients. We support the strategy of social distancing, which very likely will result in a modification of your scheduled appointment time. 

4.  Please only bring someone with you if absolutely necessary (driver, guardian, etc.).  Please no children.

5.  It is critical that you complete your registration forms online prior to arriving in the office at your scheduled time. Not doing so may require cancellation of your appointment.

6.  When you arrive at our office, you will be asked to sanitize or wash your hands, as well as your cell phone if you wish to keep it with you during your appointment. You will also need to rinse with a diluted hydrogen peroxide wash for 60 seconds prior to treatment.

We have always been and continue to be committed to keeping our office impeccably clean and sanitized. In response to the spread of COVID-19 in the community, we have increased the frequency of these cleaning routines. 

Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We know that these and other changes may be inconvenient for both you and our office. However, we are confident that together we can protect your health and make a difference in our community.
