When our office reopens, what will future appointments look like?
We are gearing up for appointments that will look different, but we are doing our very best to provide you with the same high level of care and attention to detail that you have become accustomed to receiving at each appointment.
We will continue to follow the sterilization and disinfection guidelines provided by the CDC and OSHA. As you can imagine, these guidelines have changed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and we are committed to making the necessary changes to follow the new, updated guidelines with additional direction from the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Dental Association, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association. We used our downtime to plan ahead for the safest possible environment we can provide for both our patients and staff.
More information to come on all of our new protocols, but here are a few things that will look different:
- Limiting the number of patients in the office at any given time to ensure social distancing
- Limiting the number of people who accompany a patient
- Screening everyone with a phone call several days prior to their appointment
- Screening everyone before they enter the office and delaying appointments if a patient or family member is ill
- Taking everyone's temperature when they enter the office
- Continuing personal protective equipment for our team including our front desk staff
- Different time protocols in our patient treatment rooms
As we look towards the future and how we will begin seeing patients again, we humbly ask for your patience. It will be impossible to see all of our patients back in the office on the first day we are permitted to reopen, but we promise that we are going to do our very best to get your next appointment scheduled in a timely manner. We respectfully ask that you give us some grace as we work to get everyone seen.
