Coronavirus Update

Our Office’s Safety Precautions

To help prevent the transmission of all respiratory infections, including COVID-19, we adhere to standardized infection control measures, such as performing hand hygiene, wearing facemasks, taking temperatures regularly, and appropriate social distancing practices in the office.  We follow routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, using an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant, as well as appropriate sterilization of all tools and equipment. We also use facemasks, gowns, and gloves for each patient per guidelines set by the FDA, CDC, ADA, and ODH.

While our office already adheres to these standard precautions, there are several regulations we are implementing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • We are asking that every person who enters the office have a facemask in place to prevent spread of any germs.

  • Every patient seen in the office must have completed a Supplemental Health Questionnaire and Supplemental Informed Consent form.

  • Limiting the number of people in the office at any given time during the day to less than 50% of normal.

  • Screening patients for signs or symptoms of infection.

  • Taking temperature readings prior to every appointment.

  • All patients will rinse with a peroxide based oral rinse to help disinfect the oral cavity prior to treatment.

  • Making sure our masks, gloves, and eye protection are appropriate for the procedures performed.

  • Cleaning and disinfecting public areas frequently, including door handles, chairs, and bathrooms.  

If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office if you experience any of the following:

We will discuss your health status, the dental treatment you require, and whether visiting our office will be safe for you, our other patients, and our team.

Arriving for your appointment

When you visit our office, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment, rather than too early. All patients are requested to wear a facemask into the office.  In addition, all patients must have completed a Supplemental Health Questionnaire and Supplemental Informed Consent form. If possible, we would ask our older patients to come up the office alone and bring the signed forms with them. Our younger patients can be accompanied by 1 parent or guardian (with a facemask in place). We would ask anyone with additional family members to wait in their car to limit the number of people in the office. If necessary, one of our caring team members can escort a patient to and from the car to the office for care. We will do our best to accommodate individual family needs on a case by case basis.

How can you prevent contracting or spreading COVID-19?

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone else.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze using the inside of your elbow. Do not use your hands.

  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Calling in advance will allow your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility.
