Covid-19 Precautions

Hi there! So with Covid-19 sticking around, I've taken some extra precautions at the office and wanted to share with you for a peace of mind! I will be contacting you via phone or email to do a pre-screening the day before your appointment. If you have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or have any symptoms yourself, I ask that you reschedule your appointment (your cancellation fee will be waived in this instance).

I will be staggering appointments to avoid exposure between patients, please remain in your car until the time of your appointment. You can text me at the office number when you arrive and I will let you know when you can come up. I will be leaving 30 minutes between all patients to give myself appropriate time for disinfection & sanitation. I ask at this time to not bring any additional guests or visitors to your appointment unless you've reached out to me in advance. Please bring with you as little baggage & unnecessary items as possible.

I will be wearing a mask for the ENTIRE duration of your appointment and I ask that you do the same (any cloth covering will do). If you do not have one or forget, I will provide you with one. Unfortunately we will have to wait to see each others beautiful shining smile until some day in the distant future, but I promise it will be worth it!

Upon entry, I ask that you wash or sanitize your hands and your temperature will be taken with a no-touch forehead thermometer. If you have a fever, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. I will also be using contactless payments. Please ensure that your card on file in your portal is the card you would like to use for payment. This will ensure that our interactions are minimized.

I know this time can be frightening, and healthcare looks differently than it did a few months ago. But together, we will prevail. I will do my best to keep myself, my office and my patients safe in the best way I know how.
