Coronavirus Update

Our office is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 viral pandemic and all regularly scheduled dental appointments are postponed until further notice. We will contact you as soon as the office re-opens. At this time, the office will be available to provide emergency treatment by appointment only. Please call (610) 248-9068 to schedule.
We are taking extended measures to further protect our patients and team. Please check our website regularly for details, as we continually update it describing new infection control protocols, since these measures are continually evolving as more information develops.

 

The following information details the measures that will be enacted (in addition to our already existing infection control protocol):

  • Reviewing health histories for ALL upcoming and incoming appointed patients and determining their COVID-19 risk factors: 1. respiratory symptoms, 2. fever,  3. potential past contact with someone else that has been diagnosed with COVID-19.  Patients that meet ANY of these (or other) risk factors may be asked to reschedule.
  • Patients with other high-risk medical conditions (heart disease, emphysema, COPD, diabetes, etc.) MAY be recommended to reschedule.
  • A hand sanitizer hygiene station, tissues and a hands-free trash bin will be available for use to all in-coming and out-going patients in the reception area.
  • The reception area will be continually disnifected throughout the day as patients arrive and leave.
  • Signs will be posted in the reception area detailing proper hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette.
  • Patients will be asked to perform a 30second pre-op rinse of 1% hydrogen peroxide once they are seated in the treatment room.
  • Surface disinfection protocol of all operatory surfaces has been updated to comply with guidelines recommended for COVID-19 management.
  • All staff providing treatment will continue to follow universal precautions.  The required use of N95 masks by staff is possible.
  • Any patients in need of urgent emergency dental care that have also been determined to be positive for COVID-19, will be treated in an isolated treatment room and ALL standard precautions (including gowns, N95 masks, face shields, etc) will be strictly adhered to.
