COVID-19: Enhanced Protocols to Keep You Safe
Dear Patients and Families,
We are pleased to announce that we have reopened the office following all state, local and federal guidelines for dental and dental specialist offices.
We have instituted enhanced precautionary measures to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission to staff and patients in the office. These enhanced protocols are in keeping with the recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and recommendations from the Massachusetts Dental Society, the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists.
Some things are different.
Below is a summary of some of the changes:
– Enhanced PPE (personal protective wear) for our staff
– Covid-19 symptom screening and temperature taking for all staff and patients
– Masks must be worn by all in our office
– Patient hand sanitizing and increased surface disinfection
– Your car is our waiting room (we will call and text to communicate about appointments, etc)
– Limiting people in the office with reduced schedule and patient-only to come in for appointments (unless assistance is required by the patient)
– Elimination of high-touch optional things such as magazines and brushing area
– Please brush and use restroom at home prior to appointment
– Addition of remote Dental Monitoring for increased monitoring of your treatment to decrease some types of in person visits. This service facilitates uploading images to our free monitoring app and virtual visits when appropriate.
– Prescriptive scheduling to minimize risks Some things are the same.
– The health and well being of our patients is our top priority now and always.
– We will continue to be available to all of our patients for questions and emergencies at 978-256-8531.
– We will continue to provide the best possible orthodontic care in a safe and friendly environment.
– We make awesome smiles and happy patients.
We want to assure you that we are taking continuous steps to ensure that our office remains a safe place for patients. It’s important for you to know that orthodontists and orthodontic care teams are experts in infection control.
PLEASE REMEMBER: If you are experiencing fever (greater than 100.4), cough, or shortness of breath, please remain at home and contact your primary care physician immediately.
The best way to protect yourself and your community is with everyday preventative actions, like wearing a mask, washing hands often and disinfecting surfaces regularly.
Let’s all work together to do our part to weather the challenges posed by this new virus. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we adhere to the new recommendations in the coming weeks and months.
