To our wonderful Patients,


We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health.  


We are very pleased to inform you that our office will RE-OPEN on Wednesday, May 13.  


Our community has been through a lot over the last few months and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal routines.  While many things have changed in our lives, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your dental healthy and your safety.


Infection control has always been a top priority in our office.   Our infection control protocols are designed so that your dental care is both safe and comfortable.  Our office follows control recommendations made by the American Dental Association, the CDC, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  We have always done yearly trainings so that our infection control methods and safety precautions are up to date and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations and guidelines.


The next time you are in the office, you may see some changes.  Below is a list of some of these changes:


  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions.  You will be asked these same questions upon arriving at the office for your appointment.




  • Hand sanitizer will be provided at the front reception area.  Please sanitize your hands when entering the office.


  • The number of chairs in the waiting room has been reduced to ensure social distancing.


  • Please wear a mask or other similar face covering at all times, other than during your appointment.


  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.  We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you.


  • We will give you the option to wait in your car until we are ready to see you for your appointment.  In this case, call the office when you arrive and we will call you when you are ready to be seen.


  • Employees will have their temperature taken at the start of each work day and will complete a COVID-19 screening form.


  • Patients will have their temperature taken when entering the office.  


  • True Hepa air filters have been added to the reception area and in each dental operatory.


We look forward to seeing you again!  If you have any questions about our safety precautions to keep the patients and staff safe, please ask.


Thank you for being our patient and trusting us to provide your dental care.  We value your trust and loyalty.
