While the pandemic has affected our daily lives, it has also impacted appointment processes at medical and dental practices.
Our practice is taking additional precautions to ensure a safe and comfortable visit for each patient. For instance, our team uses enhanced disinfection protocols and screening practices for the safety of all staff and patients.
Here’s what you can expect at your next routine dental checkup.
Our office staff may call to remind you of your appointment and to ensure that you’re healthy. In addition, our team may ask questions regarding your health, and inform you of any information you need to bring with you.
As a safety measure, we may ask that you limit the number of people or family members you bring to your appointment. This will help limit traffic in our office as well as potential exposures.
If the state or city ordinance of wearing a mask is still in effect, we will require all patients to enter our office wearing a mask. Also, you may be asked to wait in your car upon arrival, and patients may require a temperature check upon entering our office.
Our dentists and hygienists are required to wear personal protective equipment at all times during each appointment. Some equipment may provide enhanced protection, like face shields, goggles, and masks.
Following your appointment, our staff will thoroughly sanitize all equipment in each room to disinfect and reduce the risk of spreading illness.
While some safety measures have changed, you’ll still receive the same compassionate and personalized care from Reflection Ridge Dental.
