COVID-19

Dr. Cansler and his team have developed new protocols in response to COVID-19.  As always, we are adhering to CDC and OSHA regulations, however, during this pandemic, we will be taking extra precautionary measures for your safety, as well as our own. 

 

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

  1. An appointment confirmation will be sent 72 hours prior to your appointment via text or email. Due to the nature our the dental industry , the CDC has set in place a requirement that all patients must complete a pre-screening prior to their appointment. The appointment notification will include a link to complete both the Pre-Appointment Pre-Screening form and annual Medical History Update form. Upon arrival, you’ll be asked those same questions and we will take your temperature to ensure there is no indication of a fever. 

  2. NEW PATIENTS: Please fill out the New Patient Registration form online. If you can not, please contact our office so that we may help you. 

  3. TEXT WHEN READY: We reduce the number of patients in the reception area by sending you a text. When you arrive please stay in your car, call or text when you arrive, and we will text you when we are ready.

  4. OUR WAITING ROOM IS CLOSED: Patients / Guardians, please limit extra companions to only essential people. We ask that you wait in your vehicle during the visit. If you prefer to accompany your child into the office, we ask that you contact our office ahead of time.

DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT:

  1. All patients entering our office will be screened and a temperature reading (<100.4°F) is required with a touchless forehead scanning thermometer. We also ask that you sanitize your hands upon entry as well.

  2. All patients are required to do a Pre-Rinse for at least 1 minute in the treatment room.

  3. All team members will be screened upon arrival, wearing appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE) at all times and adhere to social distancing guidelines whenever possible.

  4. All clinical surfaces are being cleaned with soap and water followed by CDC approved disinfecting products.

  5. We are using methods to reduce aerosol in the office via our standalone HEPA air purifiers. The production of aerosols and splatter in dentistry is one of the biggest concerns about the spread of infection among both dental professionals and their patients, so we are taking every measure possible to ensure minimal production. 

AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT:

If you discover that you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed within the following 14 days after your appointment, please contact our office immediately so that we may take the appropriate actions of notification.
