Dear Families of Primary Care Pediatric Dentistry,

We trust you and your families are keeping well as we navigate this unprecedented time in our lives, and want to provide you with our proposal to you as we move forward and recommence routine Dental Care for our most precious assets, your children:

Telephone screening

We will be calling you to schedule routine care and will be asking a series of health screening questions. Only those considered healthy and low –risk, will be appointed at this time. Alternative arrangements will be made as necessary for those who may have associated health risks.

There will also be a Covid –specific consent to be completed.

We are asking that if at all possible, the following requests be followed:

  • 1 parent/guardian to accompany child
  • Only the child(ren) with appointments attend
  • Parents to wear a non-medical mask
  • Call the office upon arrival to avoid waiting room

What to expect at your child’s appointment

  • Strategic scheduling: minimal people in the office
  • One-way flow: enter through the back door and exit through the front door
  • Hand hygiene station
  • Temperature check
  • All games and toys have been removed
  • Staff will be wearing a mask for the duration of their interactions with your family
  • Additional PPE: full face shields, gowns, hair nets
  • Staff will direct your movement within our office
