Patient Safety & Minimizing Germs

Our dental family has been staying safe and working hard to help support our friends, family, and community while we have all been dealing with the pandemic.

We have also been spending time working together to ensure we are ready to safely resume seeing patients as soon as possible, and we are excited to let you know that on Wednesday, May 6th we will be back to serve you!

As we navigate this strange time together you will likely notice a few changes at your next dental appointment. Please review the following information, and as always, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Important Information About Your Next Appointment

  • When venturing out in public, including coming to our office for an appointment, please wear a mask.  We will be doing the same and look forward to a time very soon when we can see your smiling faces mask-free!
  • We will be contacting you prior to your appointment to ask a few questions to ensure we can treat you comfortably and safely.  To make this process easy for you we will send a survey via text 1-2 days prior to your appointment.  Please be sure to respond!
  • As recommended by the CDC and the American Dental Association we will be screening our patients and our team daily, including checking temperatures on arrival.
  • We will be scheduling differently to accommodate social distancing measures and to reduce wait times.  Please be sure to be on time for your appointment since we may have less ability to accommodate late arrivals.
  • To ensure we keep our waiting room empty, please call or text us when you arrive for your appointment and we will let you know when your clinician is ready for you to come in.  If you arrive early, we ask that you wait in your car, or take a walk close by until your clinician is ready.
  • You may notice a difference in the flow of your appointments as we work to reduce contact points during your visit.  You will still spend plenty of time with your clinician, but we may schedule appointments and collect copays over the phone.
  • Our practice has always been proud to go above and beyond to keep you healthy.  In addition to standard infection control measures we have our Surgically Clean Air filtration and at-source aerosol reducing systems.  In response to the pandemic we have added even more air purifiers and are closing our treatment rooms for your comfort and safety.

HIGH TECH SAFETY in the “new normal”:
our 3 main components to minimize germs

Dental offices are high traffic spaces: our regular, daily interactions with patients can introduce bacterial, viral, and fungal infections into the air. The indoor air within dental offices contains unhealthy and often infectious airborne pollutants, but we believe technology keeps our patients happier and healthier.
