Protect All Our Patients And Staff From COVID 19
March 17, 2020
In an effort to protect all our patients and staff from COVID 19, our office is adding additional actions to our already comprehensive infection control program. We follow all OSHA infection standards and go beyond the directives to keep our patients and staff safe from all infections and viruses.
If anyone in your family has a cough, shortness of breath, fever, or sore throat, we ask that you do not come to our office. We are requesting that older individuals, especially those medically compromised and children unless being seen for an emergency visit, not come to the office.
Also, please reschedule your dental appointment. The CDC recommends that you stay home until free from any symptoms for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing or cough medicine.
In addition to our room disinfection procedures, we will be cleaning and disinfecting regularly throughout the day our waiting rooms, patient rooms and dental chairs and common “touchpoints” to include all doorknobs, switches, countertops at registration/check-out, and restrooms.
We are requesting that families limit non-essential persons during office visits and when possible only bring the child/children being seen for a visit with one parent/guardian.
We take extra precautions with masks, gloves, autoclaving all instruments, hand washing, and disinfecting after every patient.
Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to keeping you safe in our office.
