Office Happenings

What you can expect at your next appointment

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT:
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. 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.
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff:
* Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
* You must wear a mask while in our office.
* Taking everyone’s temperature when they enter the office
* Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one time.
* Continuing personal protective equipment for our team including our front desk staff
* Limiting the number of people who accompany a patient, if you must be accompanied please limit it to one person.
We are doing 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. We value your trust and loyalty and we are happy to welcome back our patients.

Welcome Back!! :)

We will be returning to the office starting Friday, May 29th!!!! 😊  We are working hard to prepare the office to ensure a safe environment for your dental care.
We are so thankful to be back in the office! 😁 Proper PPE is being used and following the CDC guidelines for our patient and staff safety. DOH released an update to the dental health care guidance as part of the commonwealth’s phased COVID-19 reopening plan. This new guidance allows dental health care providers the ability to safely provide oral healthcare, including routine cleanings. This guidance is effective statewide.

Office Temporarily Closed :(

Under the guidance of the American Dental Association in response to the threat of COVID-19 or coronavirus and because the health of our patients and team is our top priority, our office is closed effective Friday, March 20. We will keep you posted when the office will be opening back up.
We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of these changes. Please contact us regarding canceled appointments, and we will get back to you as soon as possible about rescheduling. Thank you for your patience as we take the actions necessary to respond to this public health issue.
