Our COVID19 Safety Precautions

June 2020

Dear Patients,

I hope this finds you well and staying healthy during these uncertain times. I wanted to reach out and provide reassurnace that we are here for you and are continuing to use our best practices to protect and deliver exceptional safe care. Below is outlined some of the extra precautions that we continue to take since reopening on May 4.

  • Daily screenings of temperature and symptoms for team members
  • Screening of patients upon arrival – temperatures taken and questionnaires are reviewed. Anyone with a temperature of 100 F or higher will be rescheduled for a later date
  • Hand sanitizer provided to patients upon arrival
  • Team members must wear face masks at all times. Patients are provided with a mask upon arrival if they do not have their own face covering
  • Only patients are allowed in waiting area. Anyone accompanying the patient must wait in their vehicle except for minors or those needing special assistance
  • Pre-appointment hydrogen peroxide mouth rinses and betadine spray are provided to the patient to minimize any viral particles in the mouth
  • When possible we are using aerosol isolating devices reducing contamination that could be generated
  • Clinical staff have increased personal protective equipment to include N95 masks, face shields, eye protection, surgical caps
  • After a patient leaves the operatory room, we follow CDC guidelines for disinfection between patients
  • UV-C air filtration units are in each operatory for air purification
  • The office is fogged 3 times a day with disinfectant

Thank you for continuing to entrust our office with your dental needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Regards,

Caroline Wallace DDS
