Dear Patient, We hope you are doing well and have used time to reflect on all things that matter most. Our office is open for all patients. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. During the stress of the current pandemic, we want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe; and to inform you that there will be some visible addendums during this era of COVID-19. Our office follows 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. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
