Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your
visits to our office.
Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe
We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to
keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA),
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new
rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are
current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help
protect our patients and staff. For example:
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be
asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- We have masks and hand sanitizer that will be available when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth,
since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
- Our waiting room also be closed during this time to limit unnecessary contact. Instead, you will be able to call or text us when you arrive and a trained team member will meet you at your car or in front of the building to escort you back to your room.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean
that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well
as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the
steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
