Here at Providence Prosthodontics Dental Group we care deeply about each of you and have worked diligently to ensure that our office and staff have been properly outfitted and trained so that you and your family will remain safe when visiting our office. Under the guidance of the California Department of Public Health, a letter to California Dental Healthcare Personnel was delivered on May 7th, 2020. The letter provided guidance for resuming deferred and preventive dental care. Although we have always met or exceeded guidelines published by OSHA and the CDC the new guidelines have required that we adopt newer standards for the prevention of transmissible disease.
We have procured Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including N95 masks, surgical scrubs, disposable paper gowns, and have installed physical barriers for your safety. Additionally, we further trained our staff on the standardized use of this equipment including the use of sanitization fogger protocols that add an additional layer of cleanliness and security.
Again, your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority. The measures we will be taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:
In addition to these standard measures, we will be exercising a higher than normal level of infection-control and social distancing for the foreseeable future. While we adore and value each of our patients, handshakes and hugs are no longer appropriate and may be replaced with a bow, wave, or possibly an “elbow bump” for the time being.
While we are doing everything in our power to protect you, we also ask for your cooperation in making our office environment a safe one when you visit us. If you have a cough, fever, or chills, please call our office to discuss when you should reschedule. We will be checking temperatures on all patients as they enter the office and anyone with a reading over 99.9 degrees will be asked to reschedule at least three weeks later as a precaution.
Should you wish to discuss your future dental care or have any questions about treatment and whether you should schedule an appointment, please do not hesitate to call us at 714-771-7555. We will provide personalized conversations regarding your individual dental needs and will review with you in detail our infectious disease/COVID 19 control procedures.
