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
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:
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.
