At Davis Family Dental Care we hope all of our patients and their families are in good health. 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. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, as you may have seen during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.
We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and team members safe. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations. You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team. For example:
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked to verify and initial the answers to those questions have not changed when you are in the office.
• When you arrive, you will call or text the office and we will send a team member to meet you at the front door to take your temperature. This is to limit the number of people in the waiting room and expedite your appointment.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use immediately when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
• You may see that our reception area will no longer offer magazines, children’s books and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
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 (817) 354-9999 visit our website at www.DavisFamilyDentists.com.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
With love and respect,
Drs Lauren Drennan, Dakota Davis and Paul Davis and all of the Davis Family Dental Care Team
