***COVID 19 Update***
Q: "I've been vaccinated. Do I still need to wear my mask?
Thank you for doing your part and getting vaccinated! Unfortunately, our office is a public place and we cannot assume that everyone who enters has been. For the foreseeable future, we will continue to abide by the recommendations of the CDC, OSHA and all local and state mandates.
Q: "Is it safe to come to the dentist?"
Going to the dentist is probably one of the safest things you can do right now. Your dental provider is a highly trained health care professional who is 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. See below:
For the time being, you appointment may look a little different than it has in the past. To minimize patient interaction and comply with social distancing, our lobby is limited. Our reception staff may schedule your next appointment and collect co-pays remotely when possible, via text, phone or email. This minimizes contact at the front desk.
We ask that you remain in your car and either text or call the office when you arrive. A team member will come out to greet you when your room is ready, and you will be asked to wear a mask or a cloth face covering. Your temperature will be taken with a touch-less thermometer and you will be asked COVID19 screening questions. These may include:
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?
If you have questions regarding whether or not you should be seen, or if you are experiencing any health concerns, please call the office. We will be happy to discuss it with you.
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":)
Q: "Has the staff been vaccinated?"
A: We're working on it!
We are encouraging our team to get vaccinated as soon as the shots become available to them and are committed to providing a safe environment for both our team and our patients.
That said, we’re continuing to wear all necessary PPE and following CDC guidance to minimize the potential for the virus to spread at our practice. Even though our team may have the ability to get vaccinated at this time, that’s not the case for most of our patients. Public health experts are cautioning that even someone who has been vaccinated could still potentially transmit the virus to others. Therefore, we are still operating under the assumption that our patients are not all vaccinated.
That means we will continue to maintain all of the same health and safety protocols that have been in place throughout the pandemic, and we’re updating our efforts whenever the CDC releases new information.
We are trying our best to make it as easy as possible for each member of our team to get access to the vaccine, but their medical information is private so we, unfortunately, can’t disclose anyone’s vaccination status.
