Our infection control processes are designed to provide safe and comfortable care for our a patients. 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 and of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings and guidance that may be issued. We do this to insure that our infection control procedures are current and and adhere to each agencies' recommendations.
You may see some additional features to protect patients and staff at you next appointment For example:
Our office will communicate with you before your appointment to ask some screening questions. you will be asked the 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 locations in the office as needed
You will see that our waiting room no longer offers 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 are 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.
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. To make an appointment, please call our office 860-563-0375.
