COVID-19 Reopening update

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. We always want your care to be both safe and comfortable. Due to COVID19, we want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

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 do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We ask that you do not arrive (too) early for your appointment and preferably that you come alone so we don’t have people sitting in the reception room. This is for their safety as well as ours. Our preference is that you remain in your car and call us to let us know you are here. If we are ready for you, you’ll be asked to come in. If we are not quite ready, we will call you in when we are. We have adjusted our schedule so that there should be little, if any wait time.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • 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. 
  • Other adjustments to our procedures have also been implemented that you may or may not notice.

Like many things about COVID19, there is still a lot to be learned. Will this become a permanent “new normal”? Only time will tell.

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. To make an appointment, please call our office at 417-889-5200. 

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,

Doc Gary and the entire team.
