Your health and safety is always our top priority!
We are dedicated to sustaining a safe environment for all of our patients. We know that nowadays, moving forward, our obligation to your safety is even more important to you.
Meticulous infection control procedures have always been essential to everything we do at our dental office. While continuing to meet the CDC and OSHA requirements, we will also be applying new, added safety procedures.
Dental Office Protocols: What to Expect
The next time you come into our dental office, you may notice some of the following new safety protocols:
We will be wearing additional personal protection equipment
We will give the option for online check-in and appointment scheduling.
We will ask that you wait in your vehicle instead of the waiting room before your appointment.
We will request that you wear a mask to your appointment.
- We will ask that you sanitize your hands prior to and after your dental appointment, at the sanitizing stations provided.
- We will take yours and other patients’ temperatures upon arrival.
- We will take you directly to your treatment room upon entrance.

These new protocols will help maintain a safe environment while we address your dental needs.
How is your office protecting patients from the spread of COVID-19?
In addition to meeting CDC and OSHA requirements we have also implemented protocols used to protect patients as well as our team from the spread of COVID-19. Some examples of this may include: the team wearing additional personal protection equipment, requesting you wear a mask to your appointment, asking to take yours and other patients’ temperatures upon arrival, requesting you wait in your vehicle instead of the waiting room, taking you directly to your treatment room upon entrance, online check-in, appointment scheduling, and payments.
How do I know if anyone on your team has been exposed to COVID?
We are screening team members each day as they enter the practice and following all infectious protocols to prevent exposure. If any team member had been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case, they are on a self-quarantine and will not be returning to work.
How can I help protect myself when I come into the office? Should I wear protective equipment, like a mask?
Yes, we’re requesting that you wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to your dental appointments. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one.
How often does your office disinfect treatment rooms?
We deep clean and disinfect our treatment rooms between each patient.
