Davis Dentistry will resume practice operations in compliance with relevant Executive Orders on Monday May 4th. We will continue to employ the enhanced cleaning and infection control protocols we implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to provide our patients and team members with the safest possible healthcare environment.
Our practice will be screening all patients and visitors to our offices. At Davis Dentistry team member will ask each patient/visitor a few travel-related and health screening questions, both prior to their appointment and upon arrival in our office; patients’ and visitors’ temperatures will be checked with a temporal thermometer. We are asking all patients to arrive 5 min. prior to their scheduled appointment. Patients who are at high risk for COVID-19, as determined by our office, will likely have their visit rescheduled. If you’re not feeling well, please contact us to reschedule, whenever possible, in advance of your visit.
All team members will be surveyed daily to ensure adherence with social distancing standards and status of their health. All team members will be in masks (or scarves for non-clinical team members). Importantly, all personnel in our offices will complete COVID-19 testing with the IGG antibody test as soon as we receive our supply of test kits (within 2 weeks). The IGG test determines both the acute presence of the virus and whether our team members were exposed to COVID-19 previously.
Additionally, to reduce the risk of transmission to our patients and team members, as well as their families, the office has installed 4 very powerful HEPA h13 air filters. These filters will remove all bacteria, viruses and VOCS down to the .3 microns keeping our working environment safe!
We appreciate your support of these infection control measures. Your oral health is vital to your overall wellness and your ability to resist the impact of COVID-19, so we encourage you, if healthy, to maintain your regularly scheduled hygiene appointments with Dr. Davis and our practice.
In good health,
Dr. Davis and Team
