 CHECK-IN BY PHONE

When you arrive for your appointment, we ask that you remain in your vehicle and call us to let us know that you are here. When our team is ready to see you, we will call you to come inside so we can avoid patients gathering in our waiting room.

                                                                                                                                             ARRIVAL

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Our team will be utilizing different forms of protective gear to protect themselves and patients. This will be done to prevent the spread of germs from our team to you and vice versa.

                                                                                                                                     TREATMENT

 Patients will be provided with an antibacterial/microbial rinse prior to all treatments.                                                                                                                                                                                              

                                                                                                           UV LIGHTS

UV light technology has been proven to reduce and kill airborne viruses like the corona virus. We have installed UV lights in each treatment room that will be turned on in between appointments to disinfect the room after the room is cleaned in between patients. Any viruses that are present  will be destroyed by the UV light, and the lights will be turned off while patients and staff are in the treatment room.

                                                                                   AIR PURIFIERS WITH HEPA FILTRATION

We have also added highly effective air filtration systems with in built UV light sterilization to each treatment room that continually clean the air throughout the day. When you walk into our practice, you may also notice a machine in our lobby that is continually disinfecting

the room, which helps ensure that the air is clean when you walk in our front door as well.

We are looking forward  to working with our patients in a safer environent and appreciate your understanding and cooperation in our efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
