A Note from Dr. Jones about our Office - Returning to Work
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the couple of years, and we all 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, it is 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.
You will see changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff:
Patients need to wear a mask, scarf or handkerchief as you enter our building and office.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
Our waiting room will no longer offer children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
For your comfort, you may want to bring a sweater, jacket or something to keep you warm, as our office will be kept cooler while Dr. Jones and the staff wear additional PPE (personal protective equipment). Our office blankets will not be available.
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. To make an appointment, please call our office at 913-491-0077 or visit our website at www.alisonjonesdentistry.com.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
