The COVID-19 pandemic changed our world, and many businesses had to shut down temporarily to help stop the spread of the virus. Dental clinics had to adapt to new measures to keep patients and staff safe, and the good news is that we are now open, and you can come to our clinic with peace of mind.
Our dental office is committed to your safety and dental health, and we are here to help with your smile. Whether you need a cleaning or require specific dental treatments, we can help and have health and safety protocols in place, so you won’t have to worry about any risks when it comes to the COVID-19 virus. Our staff is aware of all of our new procedures that have been put in place, so you can expect comfort when you walk into our office. We prioritize safety and dental health and want all of our patients to have a smile they’re proud of.
Oral hygiene is very important, and most dental clinics were open for emergency procedures only, but this is no longer the case. We are now open for dental services of any kind, and it’s very important that you schedule an appointment so that we can monitor the health of your gums and teeth. We will be able to detect problems you may not be able to see and will provide you with the appropriate solutions to prevent a dental problem from becoming worse.
Our office is up-to-date on new guidelines and rulings, and we are constantly listening for updates provided by our government. We adhere to all of the regulations and recommendations because we want to stop the spread of this virus and our new safety procedures allow patients and our staff to remain safe at all times. Not only do we listen to government guidelines and standards, we go above and beyond to ensure that our clinic is safe. There are a few changes you need to be aware of, and the first is that a screening test will be completed before your appointment. We will communicate with you and ask you questions when you come into the office and will take your temperature before you come inside.
We ask patients to arrive right on time as there are limited seats in the waiting room. Arriving at the exact time of your appointment will also help minimize waiting times and contact and will provide everyone with additional peace of mind. You must wear a mask at all times while you’re in the office, and you need to sanitize your hands before entering the clinic. Masks can be removed once you’re in the dental chair. We also manage our appointments strategically to allow for social distancing between clients, as this will guarantee limited social contact.
