Dear Patients and Guest,
As of April 27, 2020, the State of Utah has allowed dentists to move forward with all dental procedures, including elective and non-urgent care. We are prepared and excited to return to serving you and providing your dental care! When you arrive at our office, you will notice a number of changes in protocol in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. Here are a few of the updates you can anticipate as you come into our office:
When you arrive at the office, your temperature will be taken and a series of questions will be asked to assess your health in relation to COVID-19. If the standards required by the state health department are not met, we will kindly assist you in rescheduling your visit.
You will notice the reception room has been reduced to very limited seating to maintain social distancing. We are asking that when possible, patients arrive to their appointment by themselves without additional guests in order to reduce the number of people in our office.
We have reduced the number of patients currently being seen in our office in order to maintain the standards of social distancing.
You will notice glass separators around the front desk. Please use them as you communicate with our team.
You will be given a hydrogen peroxide based mouth rinse before we begin your treatment in accordance with state health guidelines.
You will notice different masks and face shields that are being worn by the dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants in the office. These are in accordance with the national standards that have been put in place.
With these updates in place given the current situation, we are ready to welcome you into our office! We take this situation very seriously, and are taking every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of our guests and team! If you have been asked to reschedule, or have been delaying treatment due to COVID-19, please call our office to schedule your next visit!
