As of May 18 our office will resume seeing patients for emergency and urgent care in accordance with our new standard of practice. These standards will be implemented prior to our return.
We will be placing a strong emphasis on physical distancing and patient screening. Visiting the dental office will be different than it was in the past. We will be following many new guidelines set out by the department of public health and the ADA.
Everyone’s safety is our top priority, therefor we ask that you contact us by phone only for appointments, questions and concerns. We are not accepting walk-in appointments at this time.
We will begin by scheduling patients who have had dental concerns that we were not able to treat during our closure.
Elective treatment such as routine, check ups, etc will not be addressed during our initial opening phase. We will continue to give updates on these procedures as things evolve.
If you had an appointment that was unscheduled since our closure we will be in touch with you as soon as possible to re-schedule.
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 coronavirus very closely. We have always taken universal precautions in patient care, meaning that all surfaces in treatment rooms are disinfected between patients, and anything used on patients is either discarded after use or sterilized.
In the last few weeks, we began additional measures of disinfecting all surfaces in the reception area, front desk, door knobs, handles of cabinets and everything we touch during pt. visit and patient restroom several times per day, and we have removed reading materials from our waiting room.
We are doing everything we can to the best of our ability to keep all our patients, office team and community healthy and safe. These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your trust, loyalty and continued support. Together, we can definitely prevent the spread of this deadly virus and help flatten the disease curve.
We miss seeing our patients and appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time!
Thank You, from everyone at Dental York
