Our Goal Is To Keep Everyone Safe
The health and safety of our patients, their families, our staff and the general public is our primary concern. We continue to practice standard precautions as we always have, with added precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. Rest assured knowing we are practicing in accordance with the guidelines put in place by the NM Dental Association, American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists and the Centers for Disease Control.
Patients should call our office upon arrival to our parking lot for instructions on entering the office.
Patients (Parents) will be asked to sign an extra consent form and health screening questionnaire regarding COVID-19 (forms are linked above).
Everyone (including staff and doctors) entering the office will be screened for fever and illness. Anyone presenting with a fever equal to or above 100.4 degrees will be asked to reschedule.
We are limiting the number of people in our office to only those necessary.
We ask that all people entering our office wear a face covering.
Everyone will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entering our office.
Patients will need to brush their teeth at home prior to their appointment as we no longer allow for teeth brushing in the office.
Patients will be asked to use an oral anti-microbial rinse prior to their appointment.
We will escort patients in and out of the office to maintain social distancing.
We’ve added physical barriers in certain areas.
We continue to follow OSHA and CDC universal precautions regarding PPE, instrument sterilization and appointment protocol.
Our office has installed a new HVAC system that utilizes high-output germicidal UVC lights combined with a MERV 13 filtration system to prevent the spread of germs.
We have closed our kid’s play area and eliminated magazines.
You may need to wear a sweater, we’re keeping our office fairly cold.
Thank You For Understanding
We recognize some of our increased safety measures and new protocol may present an inconvenience. We appreciate your patience through all of this. We truly have the BEST patients!
