Dr. Berry and our team’s mission is to give our patients the highest care possible, and your health and safety are of our utmost concern. As a result, while we transition to being able to service both emergency and elective procedures, we have implemented additional measures which include using an increase in Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) in accordance with the ADA guidelines for COVID-19 infection control protocols. Here’s how we’re working to keep you safe and keep your mouth and gums healthy too during COVID-19.
As a measure to maintain guidelines like social distancing and promote safety for our patients and team members, we will now have the following protocols in place:
The Center for Disease Control has released interim prevention and control guidance for dental settings during the COVID-19 response. Dental settings have unique characteristics that warrant specific infection control considerations. Following their recommendations, we will now:
Additionally, we will know the steps to take if a patient with COVID-19 symptoms enters our practice. Those symptoms include:
Though that’s not a list of all possible symptoms, we continue to follow the CDC list as more is learned about COVID-19. If a patient reports COVID-19 symptoms prior to their appointment, we will delay dental care until they’re recovered.
We know that COVID-19 isn’t going away in the near future, so we will be taking these protective measures for the foreseeable future to keep our community, patients, and team members safe. Dental offices have always taken protective measures in respect to wearing protective equipment during procedures and keeping practices clean, however, we’re now doing even more to ensure the wellbeing of our people.
Your dental health can’t wait until the pandemic is over, and we know that. If you feel anxious about revisiting the dentist in the midst of COVID-19, we want to ensure you that we are doing all we can to prevent the spread of this illness. If you are having symptoms that require urgent care, we encourage you to come in. Those signs and symptoms can include serious pain, bleeding, swelling, signs of infection, and more.
If you still have questions or concerns about visiting the dentist with COVID-19 still prevalent, we encourage you to call our team here at Mountain Aire Dentistry at (303)-731-7755 to learn more about our safety procedures and practices.
