Instructions for Patients

Before you travel to the office for a dental appointment, we ask that you:

  1. Reschedule non-emergency dental treatment if you are feeling ill or have had close contact with someone who is ill or has been diagnosed with COVID-19, since confirming your appointment even if symptoms develop the day of your appointment.
  2. Complete the “COVID-19 patient informed consent TX” and “COVID-19 Pre-Appointment Screening” forms from your patient portal. (Note the email address used to register should be the same email address on file with our office)
  3. Bring layers of clothing to keep you warm during your visit. (Due to new PPE requirements we will keep the temperature in the office cool to ensure the comfort of clinical staff.)
  4. Bring along a cloth mask or other face covering, to be worn when you enter the office.

When you arrive to the office (parking lot):

  1. Remain in your vehicle and call the office to let us know you have arrived.
  2. Put on your mask or other face-covering before you are escorted into the building.
  3. One of our staff members will escort you from your vehicle when we are ready to see you. (This is necessary to maintain appropriate social distancing requirements)
  4. If you have a spouse or someone else accompanying you to the office, we will ask them to wait outside, to limit the number of persons in the building.

Before your appointment we will:

  1. Request that you wash your hands when you enter the building.
  2. Obtain your temperature and check your blood oxygen level.
  3. Request that you review and initial a short questionnaire and an informed consent for treatment. (if those have not been completed online or in the office in the last 14days)
  4. Request that you swish for 30 seconds with a mouth rinse before we begin your treatment.
