PREPARING FOR YOUR DENTAL APPOINTMENT:
- You will need to fill out new forms. You can access these forms on the “patient forms” link on this website, or we are happy to e-mail these forms to you.
- Appointment times may be limited, with fewer options, to reduce the number of people in our office, allowing social distancing, and reduced waiting times.
- Wear a mask. We have elderly patients and young patients with compromised immune systems. Please be considerate of those patients.
- You will see limited seating, barriers at the front desk and hand sanitizer available.
- You will be asked to rinse with a special mouthwash in the exam rooms.
- Be prepared to pay a $10 fee for additional protective equipment needed to protect you and our staff. If you have insurance, this fee will be filed to your insurance company under code D1999. We do not insurance to cover this, so please be prepared for your $10 co-pay at the time of service.
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 and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep our patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association, The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Occupation Safety and Health Administration. We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to -date on any new rules or guidelines that may be issued. We do this to make sure our infection control procedures are current and we continue to adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
We are always happy to answer any questions you have about the steps we’re taking to keep you safe.
