As of Monday May 4th, 2020 we will reopen our doors! We ask that you are patient with us as we transition into new protocols to ensure your safety!
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team.
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- Upon arrival to your appointment please call our office 208-888-0900 and we will check you in. Or you may respond to your appointment reminder via text stating your name and “I am here”.
- All patients will have their temperature checked prior to their appointment. Our team members will check their temperature also prior to starting the work day.
- Patients are required to bring a mask and wear upon entering our office.
- We have hand sanitizer in each room and common area. Please use upon arrival.
- There will be sneeze guards in place at the reception area.
- Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be limited seating to maintain social distancing.
- 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 reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
- Patients will come alone to their appointment unless they require assistance. There will be only one person allowed per treatment room at a time.
- Unless your child is the patient we kindly ask that you leave your children at home. Only one parent or guardian allowed per child.
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. 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. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have. To make an appointment, please call our office at (208)888-0900.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients.
