We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. 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 safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, its both safe and comfortable.

We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe:

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

Due to the Covid-19 virus our office has set up a new protocol for patients that have appointments.
For example:

  • We ask that if you have come in contact with someone with the virus in the last two weeks or if you are showing any signs of the virus that you reschedule your appointment

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. 

  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that youre offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment
  • When arriving for your appointment we ask that you call our office from your vehicle before coming in to check in for your appointment. We are limiting the number of people in our waiting room so we can let you know when the best time to come in to maintain proper social distancing

  • We will also be checking temperatures prior to your appointment

  • Once in the office we do ask that you wear a face covering if you are medically able

  • We will ask that you fill out the necessary Covid disclosure paperwork. If you are able to print and bring with you that is appreciated otherwise it will be made available in the office. 

As always Family Dentistry is using universal precautions for every patient for your safety and ours. 

Thank you for being our patient. We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,

Family Dentistry of Sterling Heights
