Important Information about COVID-19

Viruses are spread by aerosols (coughs and sneezes, and dental procedures such as cleanings), and by contact with contaminated surfaces. Our office has always been committed to a clean and safe workplace for both our patients and our staff. As part of our daily protocol, our instruments are sterilized, operatory surfaces are cleaned with a disinfectant before and after each patient, and any item we might touch or could become contaminated is covered with plastic which will be changed after each use.  We have an excellent daily cleaning service, and we have reinforced our insistence on clean and disinfected surfaces in all areas of our office. Hand sanitizers, masks, and other items which were easily obtained are now in very short supply, and we are doing the best we can to keep our supply.  We now ask our patients to bring sanitizing wipes with them, if so desired, as we can no longer place them in the reception area for patient use.  We have touchless soap and paper dispensers in the rest room, and we ask that hands be washed thoroughly for 20 seconds. We have removed all magazines from the reception area.

We are taking the necessary steps recommended by the American Dental Association for dental practices, and you will notice some changes with your dental appointments when they are resumed.  We will begin taking your temperature as well as your blood pressure. We will ask you to rinse with a disinfectant rinse before procedures, and we will consistently use a rubber dam  when teeth are being restored.  If you are not feeling well, please notify us prior to your visit and let us reschedule your appointment.

We are anxious to see an end to this dangerous viral outbreak, and we are doing our part in our community to stop the spread.  We appreciate your trust in us.

Thank you for your understanding.  If you want more information about the covid-19 virus, you can visit online at www.cdc.gov.
