Covid 19 Updates

Dear Our Valued Patients,

We are open! We hope you and your family are in good health.  Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.  While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same:  our commitment to your safety.

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 procedures are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.  We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

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 we are up-to-date on any new current and adhere to each agencies recommendations.

You may see changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • We will take temperature on every staff member and patient daily. You will be asked some screening questions when you are in the office. You will be asked to wear mask when you are in our office except when we are treating you.
  • We will have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office.  You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • We will be wearing isolation gowns and face shields in treatment rooms. We also purchased air purifiers and extra oral suction units to reduce aerosol.
  • You may notice our reception area will no longer offer magazines, children toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.  This might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.  Please follow us on our website www.cherrparkdental.com and/or Facebook for additional updates.

Thank you for being our patient.  We value your trust and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
