We are going above and beyond the ADA recommendations

We want you to know that we are taking extra precautions to keep our team and patients as safe as possible during these times. The Governor has allowed us to see elective/non-emergent patients as long as we follow the ever-changing ADA guidelines.  

For the safety of our patients and team, rest assured knowing that we have taken extra precautions well above what the ADA has recommended and will continue to keep abreast of the new recommendations as they arise. Below are some of the changes we've made to the office so you feel confident coming to your dental visit. 

New Protocols Around the Office

Changes for our patients

  • All patients and guest (parent, guardian etc.) are required to wear a mask in the office until you are in the operatory and one of our team members lets you know it is okay to remove your mask.
  • Patient pre-screening form must be filled out prior to your appointment
  • Patient screening will be done upon arrival (temperature, questionnaire, etc.) 
  • If you are accompanying a patient to their appointment, you will be required to go through the same screening precautions.
