We have diligently worked as a team to retrain and add new safety protocols as well as equipment that are designed to make our office a safe environment for everyone. Please read our appointment protocols before your visit:
Our protocols and procedures may have changed, but the level of service and high quality of care that we deliver remains the same. The health and safety of our clients and staff is our number one priority. Following are some extra precautionary measures we have been taking:
- All surfaces will be thoroughly sterilized between each patient visit.
- Anyone entering the office may be subject to a temperature check, which includes our team members as well.
- Face masks and social distancing will be required for anyone who enters the office.
- If someone in your household has been sick or is exhibiting symptoms (e.g. shortness of breath, fever, coughing, sore throat, or tightness in the chest), we ask that you reschedule your appointment.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
When is the right time to see a dentist?
While some health organizations have suggested that Americans avoid “routine” dental care, the American Dental Association, and Distinctive Dental Services agree that delayed dental treatment could lead to more harm than good. Even missing regular cleaning may mean additional appointments to repair the damage that could have been avoided. Our goal is to keep you smiling bright every day! And that means never neglecting your oral hygiene!
We understand this is a concerning time. But know that our dental office has successfully reopened and everything we do is to keep our dental family safe. One thing for sure is Distinctive Dental Services has always taken infection control seriously and with COVID, more-so than ever before.
The right time is always sooner rather than later. Please don’t delay your next cleaning or dental appointment! Feel free to talk with us about the preventative measures we are taking and even ask for a less popular appointment time. We are here for you!
