Interim Infection Prevention & Control policies During COVID-19 Pandemic

Same Day Dental Care



What we need you to do prior to your appointment:

  • Fill out paperwork and provide insurance information by email or calling it in the day prior.
  • Arrive 10 – 15 minutes early for screening.
  • Wait in your car. Check-in by phone, and we will call you when your room has properly been disinfected.
  • Do not bring anybody with you, unless required from disability. Only the patient with the appointment will be allowed in the office. That goes for children as well; parents will have to wait outside, without exception.
  • Wear a mask.
  • If needed, apply for financing (Alpheon, Lending Club or Care Credit) ahead of your appointment.
  • Arrive with a makeup-free, cleansed face.

    What we are doing to keep our team and patients safe:

    • We will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions:
      • Do you have a fever?
      • Do you have flu symptoms such as difficulty breathing, cough, gastrointestinal upset, headache or fatigue?
      • Do you have recent loss of taste, smell?
      • Have you been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive person?
      • Did you or a person you live with  travel  in the last 14-days
      • Have you attended a gathering of more than 50 people?
      • Have you been asked to quarantine?
    • We will take your temperature when you enter the office.
    • Our staff is also being screened and measuring temperature daily.
    • We will ask you to use hand sanitizer upon entering the office.
    • There will not be a waiting room available. You will wait in your car.
    • We, as always, disinfect the treatment room thoroughly as per CDC guidelines in between each patient.
    • We have sneeze guards at the front desk.
    • We upgraded our ventilation system to medical HEPA filters to cleanse the air.
    • We will be using an extra-oral suction (like a vacuum system) next to your mouth to catch aerosols at the source.
    • We will be wearing proper PPE: gown, mask, gloves, face shield, and head cover.
