To our loved patients, families, and friends,
The Ohio State Dental Board instructed all Ohio dentists in Ohio to postpone non-emergent care. Therefore, we are forced to reschedule appointments with our dental hygienist for the next few weeks. Obviously, this is a fluid situation that is creating significant burdens of many types for many, if not all, of us. Please continue to support us by rescheduling your upcoming appointments and keeping those appointments, since it will likely be quite hectic after this period of “social distancing” and extreme measures passes, and appointments will be tightly scheduled.
We are committed to remaining available in order to provide urgent and emergency care, including orofacial pain, and some appointments that are permissible according to governmental guidelines for as long as permitted by authorities.
While we remain committed to complying with local and state infection control guidelines, as well as those of the CDC, we are also electively instituting some other temporary procedures for the safety of our patients and staff. Please assist us by kindly calling to reschedule your appointment if you:
- Are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms (vomiting, nausea, fever, sore throat, general muscle aches, fatigue)
- Have or have had a cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath within the past 14 days
When at our office, we are asking you to assist us with our efforts to provide a safe environment by honoring the following basic practices:
- Practice “social distancing” by maintaining three feet from others in our reception area.
- Liberally use hand sanitizer, and wash with soap and water before and after using the restroom. (We have some available for patient use at the front desk.)
- Limit guests who come with you for your appointments to no more than one other person whenever possible and encourage them to wait in your vehicle when possible.
- Feel free to avoid shaking hands, as is our normal greeting habit. We know that we are not being rude, but rather are expressing our care for each other in this manner.
Please feel free to tell us when you have arrived for your appointments, or simply call to inform us when you arrive. If there will be any anticipated wait time, we invite you to wait in your vehicle. We will gladly call or text you when we are ready to bring you directly into the operatory for care.
In order to decrease the risk of spread, rest assured that our staff will be cleaning touched surfaces regularly, providing hand sanitizer and wearing protective equipment according to usual standards of practice. All autoclavable instrumentation is sterilized by autoclave after each use, and disposable products are used wherever reasonably possible. We also use in-duct ultraviolet lamps and high-quality air filters to cleanse air in our heating/cooling system to decrease airborne contaminants.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work together to get through this challenging time. We will keep you up to date as to any changes that may occur in the future.
Wishing you great health,
