Dear Patients:

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 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 commitment to your safety.
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’s both safe
and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to
keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA),
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new
rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help
protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be
    asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We will be taking every patients' temperature as they enter the office and check for any obvious symptoms. We will also be taking our employees' temperature as they start the day as well. 
  • For protection of all patients and staff all employees and patients are required to wear a mask
    when in the office until instructed by our staff to remove them.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find
    some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth,
    since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean
    that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well
    as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

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. To make an appointment, please call our office at 619-298-2893 or visit our website at  Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
