What to Expect

  • The office will call to confirm your scheduled appointment and you will be asked a series of pre-screening questions over the phone.
  • The day of your appointment these questions will be reviewed by an office staff member prior to entering the building for your appointment.
  • Upon successful screening, your temperature will be taken at the door and hand sanitizer will be provided.
  • Wearing your mask, you will be escorted directly to the dental operatory for your appointment.
  • When your appointment is over, you will be asked to put your mask back on and then directed towards the reception desk.
  • Once finished at reception, you will be escorted out the exit door by our staff.
  • If required, one guardian or caregiver will be permitted to accompany a patient and they too must pass the screening protocol prior to entering the office.
