First and foremost, your health and safety are our primary concern!
You may have questions and concerns about Coronavirus, as it relates to visiting our practice.
On 3/16/20 the American Dental Association recommended dentists temporarily stop offering routine dental care. Following recommendations by National and State Dental Associations, we are going to voluntarily postpone all but emergency patient care until April 30, 2020. We will be resuming regular dental care on May 1, 2020.
This decision was not made lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution. In the mean time, we will continue to monitor the situation closely, and will keep you posted if anything changes.
If you have a family member, co-worker, or friend who is not a patient of record in our practice, and is experiencing a dental emergency, we will be happy to assist them as well.
We want you to know that we have always followed the strictest safety protocols. Our office meets or exceeds all local, state, ADA and CDC recommendations for infection control. We always have, and we will continue to be vigilant about protecting your health.
During this situation we have heightened our already stringent safety standards. In order to best protect you and our team members, we ask patients NOT to visit our office if you have ANY signs of cold, flu, coughing sneezing, etc. For our patients with signs of cold or flu that are experiencing a dental emergency, we recommend you visit the local emergency room. Most hospitals have an Oral Surgeon on staff who will be able to render care and relief in this situation.
For Your Safety, All Patients Will Be Screened For Fever Prior To Entering The Office.
A team member will perform a Non-Contact Infrared Temperature Scan. If you present with a fever of 99°F or higher, we will recommend that you seek care at the local emergency room.
Each patient will be treated individually in a treatment room with one doctor and one assistant only.
A pre-treatment hydrogen peroxide rinse will be administered prior to any dental care to minimize aerosols.
We Will ALWAYS Provide Gentle Care In A Safe Environment!
