 Updated office policies 

Our updated office policies apply to all of our patients and families.  Please review these changes prior to your appointment and contact us with any questions.

  • Check in with the front desk and immediately use hand sanitizer available at the front desk before you sit down if you haven't already done so after entering the building.

  • The patient or an adult will be responsible for reviewing and signing a COVID-19 Patient Questionnaire.

  • Update necessary personal information at the front desk including your address, email and cell phone number.

  • Your temperature will be taken by either the dental assistant or hygienist.  If anyone is running a fever over 38.0 C or 100.4 F, you will be asked to return to your car and will need to contact our office to reschedule your appointment after any quarantine order.

  • Patients will be asked to pre-rinse with a 50:50 peroxide:water solution

  • If you are an adult patient, please come alone.

  • Only one parent/adult should accompany their minor patient into the office.

  • Siblings, other family members or friends will not be allowed to accompany the patient into the office.

  • Adequate social distancing seating is available in the lobby.  Parents may be asked to return to their cars in order to keep social distancing requirements.

  • In some instances, the doctor may perform an exam by reviewing your x-rays and intra-oral photos without entering the operatory.  This is still considered a periodic exam and will be submitted to your insurance.
