Regularly disinfecting dental chairs and surfaces in our operatories between patients
Disinfecting and wiping down our waiting room area, bathrooms, and surfaces that are frequently contacted. (Ex. door handles, keyboards and mice, countertops, and community areas)
Hand sanitizer will be available in our waiting room
Hand washing instructions will be posted in our bathrooms
Temperature taken when you arrive for your appointment
Mouth Rinsing with Hydrogen Peroxide for 15 seconds.
Ensuring the health and safety of our communities is our highest priority. If you are feeling under the weather and are experiencing any cold/flu like symptoms please stay home and contact our office to let us know you are unable to make your appointment. There will be no missed appointment fee if we are notified before your appointment 12 hours in advance.
