Welcome to Severna Park Family & Cosmetic Dentistry!
*****IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE *****
To Our Patients,
We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. We were able to reopen our office about 3 months ago on May 18th, and what a busy few months it has been! We began with a gradual, limited reopening as we became accustomed to our new protocols and work flow, and have been working towards a schedule that is as close to normal as possible. We are doing our best to reschedule all appointments that were delayed or cancelled during our COVID closure. If you are overdue for your cleaning or have any outstanding dental treatment, please give us a call so that we can find a place for you on our schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are doing our best to get everyone reappointed and in optimal oral health.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We have made the following changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
Our staff will be screened daily for illness and will be wearing increased personal protective equipment (PPE).
You will be asked screening questions before your appointment and again when you are in the office.
Upon arrival at the office, we will communicate with patients in the parking lot to allow entry in the building which will prevent multiple people in the waiting room at one time.
We will take your temperature and will provide you with hand sanitizer to use upon entry of the office. (If your temperature is elevated, we will kindly ask you to reschedule.)
You will be asked to wear a facemask to your appointment and to only remove it when asked. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you.
We will have you rinse with a hydrogen peroxide rinse before any dental treatment.
Every room will be sterilized to the highest degree between patients, with extra time between procedures to allow increased surface disinfectant contact time.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Plexiglass barriers have been installed around the front desk, and the carpet has been removed to enhance infection control.
Common areas and door handles will be sanitized routinely.
A no-visitor policy with exceptions to include one parent with a minor and emotional support if needed.
Updating paperwork virtually prior to your appointment
o If you are not feeling well, please do not come into the office. Call us and we can direct you to the proper venue.
o If you become ill in the first week after a visit to our office, please let us know so that we may take the appropriate actions.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. Thank you for being our patient, and please understand that we are doing our best to get your appointment in a timely manner while abiding by our new protocols. We truly value your trust and loyalty and are so thankful that we are able to welcome back our patients, neighbors and friends.
