What We're Doing to Safely Provide Care
We are taking extraordinary precautions to ensure we safely serve patients in our dental practices.
Extra cleaning and sanitation: Our practices have always maintained a safe and clean environment. We have added extended cleaning and disinfection measures to all areas, including high-touchpoint areas (surfaces, dental chairs, bathrooms, etc) inside of each practice – this effort is on top of our standard stringent protocols.
Social distancing guidelines: When patients arrive to an appointment, we are asking patients to wait outside and call the practice to let them know you have arrived. If a patient needs to fill out any forms, a member of the team will bring them to each patient to complete prior to entering the practice. When welcoming patients into a practice for an appointment, a member of our team will take each patient's temperature. This is a safety precaution – for both patients and staff. Please be advised that we are not allowing guests or family members to accompany patients inside the practice. We appreciate your understanding. Please let the team know during the screening phone call if you need any special accommodations or have any questions or concerns. The practice will work with you if you desire to have a virtual consultation with another family member while you are inside the practice.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Our practices continue to have access to and use PPE (surgical masks, face shields, gloves, gowns etc) recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for your protection and our staff’s protection during care.
Caring for staff: Our staff members continue to follow guidelines to ensure their health and safety, which includes not reporting to work if they are ill, frequently taking their temperature during work hours, and maintaining stringent infection control best practices including hand washing and use of hand sanitizers.
