We hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and well. As many of you already know our office has been seeing patients on a limited basis for emergency treatment in line with the Governor’s Proclamation 20-24. We are delighted to inform you that we will begin seeing patients for routine care starting Tuesday, May 19th, 2020. As we emerge from this difficult time, we want you to know that our staff is working diligently to reschedule your appointments that were impacted by our closure and answer your questions. We ask for your patience as we do this. If you have yet to reschedule your appointment please email, call or contact us through our website.
As always, we are committed to providing the best dental care and safety to our patients by practicing and providing the universal health care precautions necessary for our patients, staff and facility. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We have also been actively studying, reading and participating in webinars with evidence-based guidelines for restarting our practice during this health crisis.
We wanted to inform you of changes you may experience at your next visit to our office. Some of these changes will become the new standard of care, while others may be relaxed or adjusted over time:
We are so very grateful for each and every one of our patients. Please know that we take your safety very seriously and are doing everything possible to provide you with a clean and safe environment for your dental care. In addition to the stringent disinfecting guidelines that we follow in order to keep our workplace ultra-clean, we are taking advantage of our medical grade ozone generators and UV Medi-air Filtration systems to daily eliminate bacteria and viruses from the office. We will continue to do everything we can to make the visits to our clinic as safe and comfortable as possible.
We look forward to seeing and serving you in the very near future!
Richard Stickney, D.D.S. and Team
