Reopening announcement in response to COVID-19

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our communities have been through a lot
over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our office’s commitment to your
safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice. We follow recommendations and
guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to
make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest
environment for our patients and their family members.
We ask that you please be patient and understand that we will do our best to accommodate your
scheduling needs as we know many of you are anxious to get back into our office.
During this time, we have implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and
staff.

We will be scheduling appointments in a manner that promotes social distancing and allows for
adequate time for us to disinfect all areas of use in between patient appointments. 

Every person entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and will be asked to sanitize their

hands immediately upon entry.

Thank you for being part of our family dental practice.

We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and
friends.
