The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of our daily lives, including our regular dental visits. We recognize times have changed, and priorities have shifted. Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our patients and staff.
With this in mind, we are happy to share that we have implemented additional actions in combination with our usual standards of care. These actions meet or exceed all current American Dental Association (ADA), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines for dental practices.
Regular dental visits are integral to your overall health and wellness. As your family dentist Goffstown, NH, we will make sure each visit is as safe as possible so you can have a healthy, beautiful smile for life.
Before Your Appointment
To ensure our patients arrive comfortably and safely, we may call before your appointment and ask you some questions about your health. We also ask that you please limit the people you bring with you and respectfully practice social distancing during your visit. Please follow state or local government guidelines, such as wearing a face mask or face-covering in public spaces.
At Your Appointment
When you arrive for your appointment, we may ask you a series of questions and take your temperature. We may also ask you to please wear a mask when arriving at our Goffstown dental office. We have hand sanitizer available for you to use throughout our dental office, and we thoroughly clean common and high-contact areas.
Before a patient enters a treatment room, we disinfect all surfaces, including the dental chair, lights and lamps, drawer handles, and countertops. Our dental team wears personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, masks, gowns, and eyewear.
We dispose of single-use instruments immediately and sterilize non-disposable items after each patient. Staff members and dental team members consistently wash our hands throughout the day, before and after caring for each patient.
After Your Appointment
After your dental appointment, we thoroughly disinfect the treatment room and equipment to reduce the spread of germs. If you experience any symptoms of COVID-19 within two days of your visit with us, please call us to let us know so we can take the appropriate measures.
