As always, the safety and comfort of our patients and staff are our top priorities. We have settled into a comfortable routine as we navigate our “new normal” and wanted to let you know of the subtle changes we‘ve made...
It is no longer necessary to call before entering the building. We ask that you correctly put on your face mask, covering your nose and mouth, before entering the building and then simply follow the yellow signs.
Upon entering the building we will ask you to sanitize your hands, we will take your temperature with an infrared thermometer and complete a brief questionnaire. Then you will move into the waiting area where one of our dental assistants or hygienists will welcome you back for your appointment.
If someone has driven you to your appointment, we ask that they remain in the car as we still need to limit the number of patients in and out of the office.
From this point, everything will be familiar to you. The same amazing staff providing excellent care to our patients, while maintaining the highest infection control standards.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at 585-461-1670.
We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!
