PATIENTS, WE BRING YOU PEACE OF MIND.
From deeper cleanings to symptom screenings, we are doing our part to deliver your dental care safely. Under guidance from the American Dental Association (ADA) , Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) we’ve got your wellbeing covered.
Cleaning, Hygiene & Safety Standards
We’ve always been committed to the highest safety standards—and now deep cleaning has a whole new meaning as we sanitize chairs and surfaces between visits. Masks are also required for everyone in the office, including team members and patients. If you don't have one, we'll provide you one at the front desk.
In times like these, a little distance goes a long way. We're moving you in and out of treatment rooms quickly (and safely) and encouraging you to wait outside the office prior to your appointment. We'll text you when we're ready to see you—and don't forget to wear your mask.
We’re requiring wellness checks for our team daily, as well for each patient before the appointment . This means daily health check ins with staff and temperature checks for everyone. We’ll make sure to check your temperature before you we begin with your appointment to keep everyone safe and healthy.
We’ve adjusted our operations to keep you and care teams safe. Staggered appointments limit the number of people arriving and give us plenty of time to clean in between. And if you’re an older adult or have underlying medical conditions, we’ll see during a slower time of day.
In a world where things are changing fast, smiles connect us more than ever.
