Dear Patients of Shea Dental,
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
*To this end we have added air filters throughout the office that go beyond HEPA filters that remove airborne viruses. (https://molekule.com/shop)
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association, the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
Here are some changes you will see at your next appointment that were implemented to help protect our patients and our staff. For example:
- We have enhanced all PPE for all employees.
- Verbal communication prior to appointment to screen for any symptoms. (We will screen again once you arrive for your appointment)
- The waiting room is currently limited to two patients.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. For example: Spacing patient appointments to reduce the number of patients in the office at any one time.
- We will be requesting you check in from your car when arriving for your dental appointment. Call or text.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care it is both safe, and comfortable.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient safe in our practice.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
