*** MetLife PPO Update ***
YES! You can still come to our office!!
As of 2/1/22 Prast Family Dental is no longer a PPO provider with MetLife. What does this mean for our patients with this insurance? Often, not very much. We still continue to submit your claims for you and depending on the type of plan, you may not see any difference in your out-of-pocket fees, especially for preventive care (most types of cleanings, exams). If you have any questions, please give us a call. Our insurance specialist will be happy to discuss your plan, submit a pre-determination for an estimate of any potential out-of-pocket expense and go over any other questions you may have.
***COVID 19 Update***
Q: Do I still need to wear my mask?
A: Following CDC Guidelines
As we continue to adapt to the changing nature of COVID-19, our office continues to monitor the COVID-19 Community Level. Currently, our level is LOW, which means masks are welcome but not required in our waiting area, per CDC public indoor guidance. We frequently monitor our local levels and will require indoor masking in our waiting area if our local level is upgraded to HIGH.
One thing that will not change at your upcoming visit is the adherence to strict COVID-19 safety protocols during your exam or procedure. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and the dental team will continue wearing all proper personal protective equipment (including masks), following enhanced cleaning protocols and more.
Of course, as always, we ask that you DO NOT enter the building if you are or have been sick, have been exposed to anyone who has been sick or has tested positive for COVID19 within the last 14 days. If you would prefer to wait in your car prior to your appointment, please call the office upon arrival and we will notify you when your room is ready.
Please let us know if you have any questions before or at your visit. We look forward to seeing you!
Q: "Is it safe to come to the dentist?"
Your dental providers are highly trained health care professionals who are up to date on proper care and cleaning procedures. We take your health and dental health care seriously! We have proper protection for you and our staff and are following current updated guidelines.
**** If you can answer "yes" to the following questions, please call us. We may ask that you reschedule your appointment: ****
Have you traveled out of the country or domestically to an area experiencing a COVID19 outbreak in the past 14 days?
Are you now or have you experienced any of the following symptoms: dry cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, fever over 100.4, body aches, chills with fever over the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID19 in the past 14 days or is showing symptoms?
Our staff has been trained on the current COVID19 guidelines and has ample PPE. In addition to our usual high standard disinfection protocols, each operatory has a specialized air filter that cleans the air in each room every 10 minutes. Each procedure has multiple steps that ensure your safety as well as ours.
You may notice brief delays between appointments. This is due to strict sanitizing protocols between appointments. If this happens we will do our best to keep you informed. We will do our best to see you quickly and on time but the safety of our patients and our staff is our priority.
We know it's so important to try to get back to some sense of normalcy! We ask that you please have patience with us as we're all navigating this "new normal":)
Our staff's medical information is private, so we can’t disclose anyone’s vaccination status. Please know that each team member is screened daily and as always, our office is a clean, safe environment and abides by ALL universal precautions. Please call if you have any questions.
