Our Response to COVID-19

What to expect in response to COVID-19

COVID-19 has affected all of us. We have established new protocols to ensure both patient and staff safety.

Your Visit Involves New Protocols for Patient and Staff Safety

Some things you will notice:

We have new screening procedures. All patients are being screened prior to scheduling and before entering the clinical area of our office using ADA guidelines. We will ask you for any signs of illness, flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath, or if you have any health conditions that may put you at a higher risk if you were to be exposed to COVID-19.

If you have traveled outside of the region within 14 days prior to your appointment, we will ask that you reschedule.

We are taking temperatures prior to entering the clinical area. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be asked to leave and reschedule after they have been fever-free for 21 days.

Our lobby is spacious and set-up for social distancing. We ask that you come to your appointment alone and all minors only have one accompanying family member.

Please do not arrive at your appointment early as we are trying to minimize any potential wait time. You are not required to wear a mask in our building but are welcome to do so.

We will have every patient rinse with a hydrogen peroxide solution prior to each appointment as recommended by the ADA.

We are limiting the use of instruments that cause aerosols to reduce potential transmission.

Our staff will be wearing new PPE including N95 or equivalent masks and gowns and our check-in and check-out desks now have plexiglass barriers.

We have updated our office sanitation procedures including increased disinfectant of high-traffic areas.

We have hand sanitizer available for use as you enter the building and throughout your appointment as needed.

We appreciate your patience as we all adjust to this "new normal". If you have any questions or concerns please reach out and one of our friendly team members will be happy to help.
