COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS PRACTICE UPDATE

SAFELY OPENING TO SERVE YOU

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. We’ve missed you, and it’s finally time to start making appointments again.

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

We understand you have concerns regarding this pandemic, and we have also been working through these concerns with our families and team. Infection control has always been a top priority of our practice, and we are proud to say that our standards have always exceeded the guidelines of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

In light of the current pandemic, we have continued to follow the recommendations of these agencies, and added to our usual stringent practices. When it is time for your next appointment, you will see some changes, which have been made to help protect both our patients and our team. For Example:

  • When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, our team will greet you outside and review some screening questions and you will have your temperature taken.
  • If you are feeling unwell, have been exposed to COVID19 or you are an “at-risk” patient, we encourage you to reschedule your appointment for a future date.
  • We ask that family members and/or visitors wait in their vehicles unless it is absolutely necessary for you to accompany the patient during their appointment.
  • You will notice that our reception room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, refreshments, and so forth to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination.
  • There will be an increase use of gloves, masks, and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) within the entire office.  

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 (863) 683-8127.

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

Sincerely,

Dr. Brian Crosby & Team
