COVID-19 Update 8/13/20: The American Dental Association (ADA) released a statement regarding the recent World Health Organization recommendations to delay “routine” dental care. “The American Dental Association (ADA) respectfully yet strongly disagrees with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation to delay “routine” dental care in certain situations due to COVID-19.”
Because of the strong overall connection between oral health and overall health, the ADA advises that dental care is essential care and that preventative maintenance is vital in the prevention and detection of disease.
New ADA guidelines introduced in response to COVID-19 include the use of the highest level PPE’s (masks, goggles, face shields, etc.) and devices such as rubber dams and high velocity suction to reduce aerosols.
We will continue to follow the recommendations of the ADA in order to provide you with the high quality and safe experience you’ve become accustom to at our office. Your health and wellbeing are our highest priority and we will continue to serve you as safely as possible.
COVID-19 Update 5/1/20: We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. 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, to make sure our policies and procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.
You may notice some changes when it’s time for your next appointment. In order to protect our patients and staff:
- We will reach our beforehand to ask some screening questions. We will again ask these upon your arrival at our office.
- We have hand sanitizer that we request you use when entering our office. You will also find some throughout the office as needed.
- Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, toys and other materials that are difficult to clean and disinfect.
- We will schedule to allow for social distancing between patients. This may limit available appointment times.
- We will do our best to minimize any waiting times and limit the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you safe. To make an appointment, please call our office at (608) 592-4135.
