Because of the Coronavirus, our office is currently closed except for same day emergencies to adhere to government mandates and guidelines. The safety and health of our patients, our employees, and our community is our top priority. We will let you know when we are once again able to provide our patients with the quality care and the safe environment that is a hallmark of our practice. Smiles Dental adheres to the strict safety standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We have always been extremely mindful of our patients’ health and safety and will be even more vigilant in the future. Rest assured when we do welcome you back that our office and equipment will be thoroughly disinfected.
Protect Yourself & Your Loved Ones
We encourage all of our patients to take the recommended precautions to protect themselves and their families.
- Practice social distancing. Stay home as much as possible.
- When it is necessary to go out, keep at least six feet away from others.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Always wash your hands after using the bathroom and before eating.
- Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth unless you have just washed your hands.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then dispose of it.
- Disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched.
- Do not share dishes or utensils.
- Get adequate rest and eat a healthy diet.
- Take extra precautions if you are sick to reduce the spread of the disease.
- Even if you feel healthy, be mindful of the health of others. Some people do not feel unwell when they have the disease and can unknowingly spread it to others.
