After six weeks of following the Utah Department of Health’s mandate to limit our care to urgent and emergent dental care, we are happy to let you know as of Monday, April 27th, we will be able to provide all dental care.
We will change a few things to keep our staff and patients safe.
- Our waiting room is closed. This means that when you come to your appointment, we will ask that you call or text us to let us know that you are here, and we will come out to get you when your treatment room is ready and bring you right back to your treatment room.
- We will conduct all business, scheduling your next appointment, collecting payment, etc. in the treatment rooms.
- We will also be asking you to complete any forms online before your appointment. This will decrease the number of people and surfaces that you will come in contact with, and in turn, the number of surfaces we have to disinfect.
- We ask that you come alone to your appointments. Any companions, other than one parent of a minor patient will be asked to wait outside. If you really must have a companion, let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
- We are only treating patients that are presumed not to be infectious. You will receive a brief questionnaire via text to be completed before your appointment. We will also be taking your temperature before your appointment, as well as those of our employees before their shifts.
- We will be using slightly different levels of personal protective equipment, you will see some with face shields and goggles, and business personnel wearing masks that wouldn’t normally.
- We’ve upgraded our air filtration systems with the REME HALO® in-duct air purifier, which kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold, and viruses in the air. We’ve also added the NovusAer Whole-Home Air Cleaner, which maximizes our air flow and cleanliness.
As always, we disinfect each treatment room thoroughly between patients. We adhere to the strictest protocols of disinfection and sterilization and even recently remodeled our sterilization area before the pandemic mandates.
During this period of emergency only care, we have seen many swollen faces and patients in severe pain. The best way to prevent this is to take care of things before they progress. We look forward to getting back to doing that.
We realize that there are probably some that have been affected adversely economically. We will do our best to work with you with any account balances due and will continue to offer payments for needed treatment.
