Our Protocols to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 During Reopening
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the virus. As you probably know, after authorization from state officials, our office reopened for all services and treatment in late May 2020. Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority. Throughout our closure, we have been working with our team to update safety and disinfection protocols as recommended by the America Dental Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and to create a system that protects our patients and staff from COVID-19. The measures we will be taking include, but are not limited to, the following:
fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment. 5. We ask that you wear a face mask and continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including at the front desk.
The front doors, public areas, and patient bathrooms will be disinfected multiple times a day.
As always, patient rooms will be thoroughly sterilized before each patient is seated.

After Your Appointment
