Beyond Dentistry Laser Center Coronavirus Update
At Beyond Dentistry Laser Center, we put nothing above the health and well-being of our patients, staff, and surrounding community. In recognition of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken an abundance of caution and innovative measures to finally re-open our doors to Brooklyn, NY residents. Though many things have changed and will likely continue to change in the following months, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to our patients. Keep reading to learn more about the protocols and precautions we’ve put in place to deliver safe dental care to you and your family. If you have immediate questions about the practices and protocols we’ve put in place, need emergency dental assistance, or have any further concerns, don’t hesitate to contact our office for support.
Your Health & Safety is Our Top Priority
As a professional dental team, we want to ensure our services are available to those in the area who need them most. We are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe during these unprecedented times. We are open and are welcoming new patients. During this time, our team will continue heeding the guidance of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) by practicing social distancing and keen attention to the sterility of our office. All PPE guidelines are followed. With these practices in place, we hope to offer the dental care our patients deserve while evaluating this dynamic situation on a day-to-day basis. Our dedication to you and your family’s safety during this pandemic will not waver simply because we were given the ‘okay’ to open our doors again. When you visit our office, you’ll feel safe knowing we put the following practices in place to ensure we do all we can to safeguard your overall health:
- Our office will reach out to you before your appointment to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked these same questions again on the day of your appointment.
- All patients will be asked to wear a face mask and gloves to their appointment.
- Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, or other amenities.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This means patients may be offered fewer options for scheduling appointments.
- We are allotting more time between appointments to reduce waiting times, as well as the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
Exceeding Safety Expectations for Your Peace of Mind
In addition to the required precautions we’ve put in place here at Beyond Dentistry Laser Center, we’ve also taken it upon ourselves to incorporate Chairside Aerosol Suction to our offices’ list of precautions. The Chairside Aerosol Suction – Aerosol and Micro Dust Collector is something we’ve found – in light of COVID-19 – as an added way to protect patients during their appointments with us. This extraoral dental suction unit is designed to safely capture chairside aerosol and significantly reduces the occurrence of airborne contaminants. Though the cost is substantial our patient and staff deserve only the best money can buy
Infectious Control Has Always Been Our Top Priority
Since our opening, infection control has remained at the top of our priority list. Our office stays stringently up-to-date on all 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 put these infection control processes in place, so our patients can receive care that’s both safe and comfortable, no matter the circumstances. When it comes to our patients, we care about more than just your oral health. The overall health and safety of our patients – especially in these uncertain times – is at the forefront of our teams’ minds. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond state protocols and patient expectations to ensure our dental office remains a safe place to visit.
We’re in This Together
From our family to yours, we want to thank our patients in advance and extend our gratitude for your continued loyalty, cooperation, and understanding. Our team is doing everything we can during this time to continue delivering the best and most-reliable dental care to the Brooklyn, NY area. We hope these precautions and protocols will contribute to the measures we are all taking as a community to help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the steps we’ve taken to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
