Dear patients and community,
During the last week we have been in the process of completely revamping our care procedures to beyond the new corona virus CDC guidelines.
Currently, we are closed to direct patient care for the next two weeks at which time we will reevaluate according to the most current standard of care. Our team is available to emergencies only. As a result, we have reserved this time while we are closed to train our excellent team and to create better operating procedures to ensure the best practices and safety.
We are devoting all of patient care time to develop true safety plans for our patients so we can do our part to keep this amazing community safe. You are free to call us about your appointments, and we will return your call. Our team will be on conference calls, all day training and researching. We will be nothing short of excellent when it comes to maintaining the best of standards.
We do have patients scheduled during this time who we will contact about their appointment, when we can be sure it is appropriate to see them. If we do get to see you as a patient, please don't be surprised of our new look. We have closed the playroom, removed all magazines, brochures, and the coffee bar/ water station. We will be wearing our personal protective equipment as we always have. We will also have you wait in your car so you do not need to be in the waiting room. There will be other things like a mouth rinse and disposable safety glasses for your safety. Patients will be kept isolated and check out at their chair.
I, Dr. Salamy, will be reviewing the changing situation and guidelines to see what type of patients should be seen during these tough times. I want you to know you are not just patients, but people I care about, and so our safety as a community is the ultimate goal.
As you know, our dental office always strives to be the best of the best, and we will rise up to this challenge.More will be announced after emergency meetings and our protocols and training are enhanced.
Please do your part to keep socially distant and help slow the imminent burden on our hospitals.
Thank you, Nicole Y. Salamy DMD & Team CFD
