We’re back and we’re ready for you!
We are excited to announce that our Wappingers Falls office will be opening on Thursday, June 4, 2020, and our Poughkeepsie office will be opening on Monday, June 8, 2020 for all dental services including hygiene appointments and all routine dentistry.
Your safety is our number one priority. Our office has been prepared for epidemics ever since the HIV crisis in the 1980’s-1990’s, which gives us the utmost confidence in our readiness. In light of COVID-19, we developed additional safety guidelines in accordance with our patient safety consultant, the American Dental Association (ADA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) and Henry Schein, our dental product and equipment supplier.
NEW CHECK-IN PROCESS:
NEW CHECK-IN PROCESS.
In order to protect patients, the reception desk will have a plexiglass barrier between the patient and the Patient Service Representative, along with an air purifier with a HEPA filter and UVC light. Floor stickers will be located in the registration area so that patients can partake in social distancing.
PATIENT FACE MASKS REQUIRED.
Masks prevent the transmission of a possible infection or virus to others. If a patient or visitor does not have one on hand at the time of their appointment, we will provide one.
NEW SAFETY PROCEDURES:
PRE-PROCEDURE MOUTH RINSE.
You may be asked to take a pre-procedure mouth rinse. This is all done out of an abundance of caution and may be required based on your symptoms and the necessary dental procedures.
CLINICAL SANITATION PROTOCOLS.
We will continue to strictly follow our already vigorous universal infection control protocols. Patients will notice more frequent routine cleanings and daily disinfection of our facilities. Each treatment room will also have an air purifier with a HEPA filter and UVC light.
Your dental health and overall well-being are of paramount importance. We ask that you please be patient and understand that we will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs as we know many of you are anxious to get back into our office.
