Here's What to Expect As We Reopen and Resume Normal Business Operations
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things about our daily lives. Your regular visits to the dentist have changed, too.
Even though we are open now, things may be a little different for a time.
Here’s what you can expect at your next appointment.
Before Your Appointment
To help make sure that patients arriving for their appointments are healthy, our dental office may call you before your appointment and ask you some questions about your current health. They may also repeat these questions when you arrive to make sure nothing has changed.
For now we ask that you limit the number of people you bring to the appointment. That could mean leaving your children at home or allowing older children to go into the office alone while their parent waits outside during their appointment.
At Your Appointment
We advise that for now, you be sure to wear a mask to your appointment. When you arrive at the dental office, you may be asked to wait outside until we are ready for you. You can wait in your car if you like. You can call when you arrive and we will call you when your room is ready so you won't have to wait in the lobby. This will reduce the number of people in the office and reduce the amount of time you’re close to other people. When you enter the office, you may have your temperature taken.
Inside the office, you may notice things people often touch in the waiting room – like toys or magazines – have been removed. We will try to have hand sanitizer available for you to use and we may wipe down items you touch, such as pens, clipboards or furniture. Don't feel offended. If you have your own hand sanitizer, you may want to bring that with you as it does seem to be in short supply these days.
When you’re in the dental chair, you may notice some things look different from the last time you were here. We may have covered the computer’s keyboard with a disposable cover so it can be easily cleaned between patients, for example. For now, we may also be using different protective equipment than we have used at previous appointments. This could include different masks, face shields, gowns and goggles. These additional precautions help protect both you and the dentist.
After Your Appointment
After your appointment is over, the staff will thoroughly clean the areas where you’ve been using disinfectants that are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19 to prepare for the next patient. This helps reduce the risk of illness being passed to others.
If you start feeling ill with the symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days of your appointment, call the dental office. You may have already been carrying the virus at the time of your appointment, so anyone who came into contact with you during that time could be at risk for getting sick too.
Remember, regular dental visits are an essential part of your oral hygiene routine – and are important for your overall heath. Be sure to reschedule your dental checkups once our local authorities allow dental practices to reopen.
Be assured that we will make sure your visit is as safe as possible for everyone involved.
