As healthcare providers the health and safety of our visitors and staff is our first concern. We already practice significant infection control measures. Those include disinfecting the operatory after each patient, sterilizing all instruments, maintaining a clean water supply to the operatory and providing masks, gloves and eye wear to employees.
In addition, we are closely following the Centers for Disease Control and the American Dental Association for guidance to stop the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. Based on their recommendations we are adding safeguards to our existing infection control measures.
Please be prepared to answer a brief set of questions, for us to take your temperature and to do a mouth rinse of hydrogen peroxide.
If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of the following questions, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment.
- Have you traveled internationally in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in close contact with another person who has a cough or cold?
- Do you have a cough?
- Do you have a fever over 100 degrees F?
- Do you have shortness of breath?
We appreciate that you have read this information in advance of your dental appointment. Please call the office (775-331-1616) if you have any questions or need to postpone your visit.
See you soon!
