Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we are all looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. As we move forward with welcoming back our patients, we wanted to communicate our infection control procedures as well as some changes you will see at your next appointment.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice as you may have seen during your visits to our office. Our processes are designed so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.
For the safety of our patients and staff, our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We will continue to follow the guidelines set by these agencies and will ensure that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
In an effort to protect our patients and staff, you will see some changes during your next appointment.
- We are asking patients to wear masks when entering the office.
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This means that you may be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
- We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep all our patients and staff safe in our practice.
To make an appointment, please call our office at 248-548-1711 or fill out the appointment request form on this page.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to seeing you all again.
