Before Your Appointment

To help make sure that patients arriving for their appointments are healthy, your dental office may call you before your appointment and ask you some questions about your current health. They may also repeat these questions when you arrive to make sure nothing has changed.

At Your Appointment

You will be required to wear a face mask to your appointment. When you enter the office, you may have your temperature taken, and hand sanitizer will be available for you to use.

Inside the office, you may notice things people often touch in the waiting room – like toys or magazines – have been temporarily removed. Staff will sanitize the waiting room between patients.

When you’re in the dental chair, you may notice some things look different from the last time you were there. Your dentist may also be using different protective equipment than they’ve used at previous appointments. This could include different masks, face shields, gowns and goggles. These additional precautions help protect both you and the dentist.

After Your Appointment

After your appointment is over, the staff will thoroughly clean the areas where you’ve been, using disinfectants that are effective against the virus that causes COVID-19 to prepare for the next patient. This helps reduce the risk of illness being passed to others.
