Providing a Safe Environment for Our Patients, Staff and Community

  

The safety and care of our patients, staff and community has always been our top priority. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, we have followed the recommendations of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), American Dental Association, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and created new protocols to ensure a safe environment and experience for all.

   

STERILIZATION AND INFECTION CONTROL

Staff clean and disinfect surfaces throughout each office following OSHA and CDC guidelines. Social distancing, physical barriers, and protocols have been put into place to restrict contact.
  

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

All employees will use the recommended PPE for his/her role including face and eye protection, gloves, gowns, and surgical mask or respirator. The highest level of PPE available will be used when treating patients to reduce the risk of exposure.
  

OFFICE SUPPORT

We are staying current with all changes and guidelines and are communicating them to our patients and staff. We offer multiple payment options including touchless inside our office as well as the ability to pay on your phone with a secure payment link sent from our office.

PATIENT PRECAUTIONS

ALL patients are required to wear a clean and sterilized mask upon entering our building. Everyone who enters will have their temperature taken and will fill out the COVID-19 screening questionnaire before being taken back to the appropriate operatory. If the safety requirements are not met, we will ask to re-schedule your appointment. Please wait in your car and text us HERE when you arrive for your appointment. When the doctor or hygienist is ready for you, we will send another text letting you know that you can now enter the building. Please bring your own pen.
  

STAFF TRAINING/MONITORING

Upon arrival, each member will be screened and monitored for any flu-like symptoms. Any employee experiencing symptoms will be asked to stay home and be properly monitored and return to work once they are no longer symptomatic. Team members will then change into their own required PPE while following all safety procedures. Proper removal of personal gear will take place at the end of each shift.
