Office Re-Opening

Dear Patients/Parents:

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 practices and you may have seen this during your visits to our offices. 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.

We are excited about going to re-open our offices on Monday,  May 11, 2020.

 

We are going to communicate through phone, Text messages and Facebook. Please Follow us on Facebook to be able to see our updates. We do our best to try to get everyone in ASAP, however, in order to follow social distancing rule, we are limited in a number of patients that we can see. It probably would take sometimes before we can schedule all our due patients.

 

We will call each patient to schedule an appointment. We greatly appreciate your patience!

 

However, if you don’t hear from us till May 25, 2020, please call us to inquire about your appointment. 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 will communicate with you prior to your appointment and to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • Due to CDC and OSHA recommendations, we ask you to wear your own mask before entering the office. Due to shortage of PPE we can not provide you with one!
  • 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.
  • 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.

Please be informed that:

  • When you arrive by the office, please call us and wait in your car! We can call or text you in few moments to when you should enter the practice.
  • We have to ask to limit extra companions on your trip to our offices to only essential people in order to reduce the number of people in the reception area. Although this may seem strange, it is all being done out of an abundance of concern for your health, as well as that of the other patients being seen in the office, the doctor and the staff, and any public with whom they might come in contact.
  • We may review Medical History when you arrive at the office in order to ensure nothing has changed since the phone conversation.

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, and every patient, safe in our practice.
