Interim Infection Prevention and Control for

Coronavirus COVID-19

last updated: 08-19-2020

 

•If you are ill with flulike symptoms, you should reschedule your appointment.

•If you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was

quarantined as a precaution, wait 14 days until you see your dentist to make sure you have not caught COVID-19. 

•If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment at this moment, we are closely monitoring the CDC and other federal and state health entities guidelines.

•Please limit the number of companions to one parent or guardian for minors and one companion for adults with disabilities. Companions may be asked to stay in the lobby.​

•You may remain inside your car in the parking lot and call the office to check-in. We will call you as soon as the treating room is ready for you.

•You must wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth while in the office and the common areas of the building.

•Once you arrive to our office please ring the doorbell and wait for a staff member to greet you outside to do a symptoms screening before walking in.

•If you test positive for COVID-19 within the next 14 days after your last visit to our office, please call us.

Here are a few things you can do on your own to help keep yourself and those around you healthy:

Wash your hands frequently or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent ethyl alcohol.

Avoid touching your face, eyes or nose to reduce the spread of germs.

Cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow. Infections like the coronavirus spread through the tiny droplets in coughs and sneezes.

Stay home if you feel sick. If you have flulike symptoms or otherwise feel unwell, stay home and rest. Call your dentist to reschedule your appointment for a later date. This will reduce the risk of spreading your illness.
