COVID-19 Update 2021
Our immediately family survived the pandemic however, we did experience losses within our circle of extended family and friends. Our daily lives have changed as there is a new culture and societal standard and this applies to our practice of dentistry as well.
HOW THE DENTAL OFFICES PROTECTS PATIENTS AND STAFF
Our office followed the CDC guidelines and order pretty carefully. We as dentist transitioned from being non-essential to essential last summer and have been practicing for almost a year now since the initial shut downs. Every office has different protocols on how they address COVID-19 and the safety protocols. Here at our office, we screen patients over the phone, have a questionnaire in office, take temperature, require use of hand sanitizer, masks, social distancing, N95 masks for staff, air filtration systems in each room among other considerations. Our staff are vaccinated and feel safe at work so we can continue to provide care to patients in a safe manner.
AS WE RE-OPEN
California is about to re-open and I believe we have learned how to function in our new normal and I will echo my last post, I think it's going to be better.
