Changes to Office Protocols During COVID-19

July 1, 2020
Posted By: Blake Nelson

As always, we are committed to helping our patients maintain a beautiful, healthy smile while keeping them safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have made several changes to our office protocols to enhance our infection control:

  • Patients and team members are screened for signs/symptoms of COVID-19 prior to entering the treatment area
  • All patients have their temperatures taken prior to their appointment
  • Patients are asked to wear a face mask upon entering the building
  • Clinical team members are equipped with a face mask, face shield, and surgical gown 
  • Front office team members will wear a face mask and face shield when interacting face-to-face with patients
  • Air purifying systems that remove and sterilize viral particles have been added to the treatment rooms and hygiene rooms
  • Sneeze guards have been installed in the check-in and check-out areas
  • High contact areas (such as doorknobs, light switches, and waiting room furniture) are disinfected frequently

We are looking forward to seeing you at your next visit!
