Hours

The office has resumed regular hours as of  9/1/20.

Many patients  have missed a checkup from March 18 until now, and I can't say how long it will take us to catch up.  If you are concerned the delay puts your dental health at risk you may wish to get your checkup elsewhere.  

We are aware which patients are overdue and will be working our way down the list.  More than just the virus is contributing to the backlog as other factors are decreasing our appointment availability.  

Should conditions lead to a local resurgence, close the schools (it affects employees childcare),  or an inability to obtain adequate PPE (the areas of the country with high COVID cases are causing nationwide shortages), we will have to decrease hours again.  

You are probably already familiar with how a dental visit will work from now on.  You'll be asked about travel, any chance of exposure to COVID positive persons, recent cough, loss of taste or smell, your temperature scanned,  given hand sanitizer when you arrive, and asked to wait in your car if we are not ready just yet to take you.  We'll be in, at minimum, what are called level 3 masks (if not N95 or KN95), and face shields and isolation suits.  The office now has 4 medical grade HEPA air filter units.  We also have "upper air germicidal irradiation units" in each operatory, that are rated to kill TB (and the virus is easier to kill than TB). Further, each treatment room has ducted fans that exhaust out the window.  And lastly, we will limit aerosol generating procedures whenever possible. 

We hope that  these measures won't be necessary more than a few months or a year or two.
