A letter from Dr. Hornstein:
Hello to our Center for Advanced Dentistry family!
I hope you are all well and taking advantage of your free time during this quarantine period. I miss seeing all of you. Being away for so long makes me appreciate what a great team we have and what great people we help every day in our office.
I want to update everyone on the changes that we are
implementing in our dental office moving forward. I want to emphasize that your safety, as well as ours, is of the
upmost importance. Therefore, I have personally invested thousands of dollars in procuring state of the art infection control measures. This includes new filtration systems that mitigate aerosols and kill bacteria and viruses. We are implementing the use of ozone machines to sterilize the office in the evening. Additionally, we are working hard to procure PPE’s to keep everyone safe.
Here is the protocol we are implementing when our office re-opens:
We are reserving some of our early appointments for our patients who are over 60 years old and patients who are at high risk because of health factors causing decreased immunity.
All patients will go through forehead temperature scan screening and a thorough history of questions pertaining to your health status and social distancing.
We are staggering our patient visits to maintain social distancing practices. Therefore, when you have a scheduled appointment, please call us when you arrive in the parking lot, and we will welcome you and bring you directly into our treatment rooms.
We are setting up a barrier in our treatment room for our patients that need dental “filling” work. We are also purchasing high speed suction units for all procedures. Both of these systems, along with your health screening, will ensure all treatments are safe.
Please consider wearing a mask into our office for your safety and the safety of our team and other patients.
Our team will be wearing masks, face shields, and disposable gowns, which we will dispose of when done.
Unfortunately we will not be able to offer hugs and high fives! Maybe a to go cup of coffee if time allows. We want to make your appointment as safe and time efficient as possible.
We are working to accommodate everyone who needs to schedule an appointment. Please be patient, as we will not be fully operational when we first open.
I will be available to teleconference with anyone needing help soon using doxy.me
We will all get through this strange time together
