At Printers Row Dental Studio, our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients. Often in times of uncertainty, there can be a wealth of misinformation spread, especially in today’s digital age. As a leading healthcare provider in our community, we wanted to reach out to all of our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus. We would like to let you know the steps we are taking to alleviate any potential concerns and to just say that we are here for you!
According to the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other national healthcare providers, the current health risks are minimal for most age groups. We recommend all of our patients to wash their hands frequently, avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home if you aren’t feeling well. Please let us know if you have recently returned from traveling abroad or are experiencing any symptoms, and we will help you to reschedule your visit.
At Printers Row Dental Studio, we follow strict cleaning policies for the protection of both our staff and our patients. Each staff member maintains rigorous personal hygiene standards including hand washing between each patient interaction, and refraining from hand shaking at this time. We use hospital-grade disinfectants across the entire office, with extensive room-cleaning after each patient to ensure a safe and clean environment. After each use, all dental instruments receive the highest level of medical sterilization available. These processes have always been of utmost importance in our office and will continue to be the standards we uphold for our community.
We have also removed the mouthrinse and toothbrushes from our bathroom. If you prefer to brush your teeth before your appointment, please do so at home. As a small office, we typically only have 1-2 patients in the office at a time, and we will be adjusting our schedule to allow for patient appointments to be further spaced apart when possible. We are also disinfecting the office including the bathroom and reception area multiple times a day. We will also gladly disinfect any surfaces at your request. Don’t hesitate to ask! Our regular disinfectant kills Coronavirus in 1 minute.
Please rest assured that we are following local and national updates daily, and will continue to maintain the highest level of safety and patient care that you have come to expect. If you have any questions regarding your future appointments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Again, thank you for being a valued Printers Row Dental Studio patient. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence. Together we can overcome these challenging circumstances and continue your path to greater health! We look forward to taking care of you at your next scheduled appointment.
