We are excited to announce that we will re-open for dental care starting Wednesday, April 28th! Governor Polis announced that our state is transitioning from the “Stay at Home Order” to a “Safer at Home Order”. Earlier this week Larimer County also approved dental offices to re-open as long as pre-cautionary measure have been implemented. We have implemented their recommendations as well as our own procedures to keep everyone healthy. 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 health and safety! Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and this is one area where we are constantly making improvements. Besides our infection control procedures we have made several other office changes to keep you safe. We understand that some of you may want to delay or reschedule your appointments and we are happy to do this for you. Please give us a call and we will find a time that is convenient. With our additional safety procedures in place and your cooperation we feel that we can provide great care in a safe environment.
Firstly, how we schedule patients has changed. We are staggering the schedule to limit the number of people in the office as well as to promote social distancing. Of the 5 treatment rooms we have, we are currently only using 3 to increase the distance between everyone. In the reception area we have spaced our chairs out, leaving 6 feet between them. You may notice that this area will no longer have magazines, coffee, or bottled water since these items are difficult to clean and disinfect. When checking out we have taped blue squares on the carpet letting everyone know where to stand. This will help keep both other patients and employees a safe distance apart. In between appointments we are using hospital grade disinfectant to clean all surfaces in both our treatment rooms as well as in the front office, bathrooms and reception area, and these areas are being disinfected on the hour.
