Happy New Year!
We are reaching out to update you on our most recent COVID screening procedures. As always, our office follows strict infection control and sterilization/disinfection practices and looks to the CDC, the ADA, OSHA and our local health department for accurate information and the most current guidelines for healthcare providers.
We are sincerely grateful for the trust and confidence you have demonstrated by coming to your appointments throughout the pandemic and adhering to our COVID related safety measures. Our goal is to be able to continue providing high quality dental care while keeping both patients and staff healthy and safe. To that end, here are our most current protocols:
~If you or anyone in your immediate household have been exposed to COVID or have tested positive within the last 10 days, we kindly ask you to reschedule your dental appointment, regardless of your vaccination status.
~We ask that you wear a mask to your appointment and keep the mask on at all times when you are here except when you are receiving treatment.
~Bring a sweater or jacket since the temperature will be set low for the comfort of our staff wearing personal protective equipment.
~Only the patient may come into the office. Exceptions will be made for children under the age of 10 and those requiring assistance with transport/transfer/language.
~You will be asked some simple screening questions about COVID-19 symptoms or exposure and you may have your temperature checked.
~Please do not come to your appointment if you have any symptoms of illness or are feeling unwell. We will happily reschedule your appointment.
We look forward to seeing you at your next scheduled appointment!
Drs. Gilrain and Brooks, D.D.S.
