Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize that our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
To ensure the health and safety of everyone at our practice, we will be taking additional measures when seeing patients going forward. When you come in for your appointment, we ask that whenever possible, you complete your paperwork online or by mail ahead of your appointment. We ask that you don’t bring any guests with you, or that if you do, they wait in the car. We will take your temperature when you arrive at our office to ensure that it’s not elevated. We will ask you to use hand sanitizer when you enter the office, and to rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide before your appointment begins. We also ask for your patience, as we will be staggering our appointment times to reduce contact with other patients, and therefore wait times may be longer.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at 706-869-9117, and one of our team members will be more than happy to assist you.
