During these unprecedented times our office is taking action to go above and beyond to provide the highest level of safety.
Our practice has received feedback from the American Dental Association(ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration(OSHA). Having had extensive discussions across the industry to find the best ways to keep everyone protected, we are comfortable back in the office.
We ask that patients stay aware of the risk and do their best to protect themselves and our staff. Please wear a mask and wash your hands whenever possible. Dentists across the country are adjusting to the circumstances. Here is what our practice is doing to make sure everyone feels comfortable:
Our office is asking patients screening questions, before entering the office.
Your temperature will be taken upon entering.
We have hand sanitizer in the reception area.
Magazines, children’s toys and the coffee machine are removed from the reception area.
Seats are spaced out in the waiting room to maintain social distancing.
Appointments are managed to have fewer patients in the office at any given time.
Our staff has upgraded personal protective equipment.
The front desk had plexiglass windows installed.

Additionally, our office is working on an improved sleep program, to help our patients get through this stressful time. Currently this is in closed testing, but feel free to reach out if you’re interested. We can answer any questions and add you to our waiting list.
Thank you for being our patient. It’s more important than ever to keep a smile and stay healthy. We are here for you.
