Dear Patients:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines on May 26th 2020. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same, our commitment to your safety and health.

Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice as you have seen during your visits to our office. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we will follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe. We hope what follows in this letter will alleviate any concerns you may have.

As has always been the case, our office follows the 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 follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. The dental profession as a whole over the years has dealt with many serious illnesses. COVID-19 is one more to be added to the list.  We will manage it successfully and continue to provide the utmost safety for our patients and our team.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment to help protect our patients and staff.

Procedure before entering the office:

No one will be allowed in the building if they have a fever, cough, rash, sore throat, aches, head aches or have had contact with a COVID-19 positive person and/or traveled out of the country within the past 14 days. We will try pre-screening via Telephone so the doctor can decide if the concern can be addressed without coming in. We ask patients to take their temperature at home the evening before.

Preventative Protocols once patient arrives

  • Office doors will remain locked throughout the business day.
  • Patients are instructed to call the office when they arrive and to wait in the car until notified that the team is ready for them to enter the facility. If you are coming with someone, we ask that they remain in the car whenever possible. If someone must accompany a patient into the office, we ask that they wear a mask and maintain social distancing. They will also undergo the screening protocol. All patients must also wear a mask before entering the office.
  • A dental team member wearing proper protective equipment will meet the patient outside the office door to take their temperature and blood oxygen level. Upon entering the office, the patient will be asked to wash their hands following World Health Organization protocol. We ask patients to not touch their face with their hands.
  • The Patient will then be seated in their personal operatory and they will be asked to rinse with an anti-viral, anti-microbial mouth rinse for one minute.
  • Unless authorized, no one will be permitted in the waiting area.
  • To minimize aerosols, the doctor will be utilizing rubber dam isolation and a high-volume suction when possible.

In addition to the Universal Precautions and Standard Bloodborne Pathogen Protocols, which we have always followed and to further ensure maximum sterilization, we are going above and beyond the mandated safety requirements by incorporating a hypochlorous acid fogger. Treatment rooms will be fogged (sterilized) after each patient and the entire office will be fogged (sterilized) at the end of each day.

Other non-clinical changes you will notice:

  • A verbal, email or text confirmation must be received at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to ensure your place on the schedule is preserved. The team will need an additional 15 minutes before and after your appointment to ensure the added safety precautions instituted can be performed.
  • 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.
  • Appointment times will be managed to allow for social distancing and fewer patients in the office at one time. That might mean that patients will have fewer options for scheduling their appointment. In light of this, any no shows or late cancellations will be subject to a fee.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 203-531-5595.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Remember, the mouth is the gateway to your body.  Its health is part of maximizing the strength of your immune system.

Sincerely,

Dr. Anzalone, Dr. Zapata and Team
