What To Expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.
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 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. Some extra precautions include disinfecting UV lights in all rooms, new filtration systems, and a new external oral suction machine to limit the spread of airborne aerosols.
As we begin the process of reopening our practice, 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 hours will be Monday - Thursday 8:30 am- 3:00 pm, and we will be working with a limited staff.
- 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, and we will also take your temperature.
- Mobile Check-in. Upon arrival for your appointment, we are asking that you call from your vehicle to check in. At that time we will notify you if we are ready for you to enter the office.
- 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.
- Our waiting room will be limited to only patients (and guardians if under 18). All others are asked to wait in the lobby or their vehicle.
- We require a mask or face covering while in the office.
- 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.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you're offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
