Dear Magnolia Dental Patients,
We have re-opened the office as of today, May 11th, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are opening with many changes and precautions to safe-guard the health and safety of our patients and staff. I would like to take the opportunity to tell you about some of the measures we have implemented to keep everyone safe, as well as prepare you for some of the changes you might notice in our protocols.
The next time you visit us for an appointment you will be asked to call when you arrive. Someone will take you a questionnaire regarding your current health status, possible exposures you may have had to Covid-19, and risk factors. You will then be asked to please wear a face covering as you enter the building where your temperature and oxygen levels will be assessed. When you enter the dental operatory, we will ask you to rinse and gargle with a hydrogen peroxide solution for 30 seconds, then replace your face covering until we are ready to begin the procedure.
Change is difficult, but we are implementing these steps to make sure you are as safe as can be. We are hopeful and look forward to a time when we can return to the more relaxed environment we are accustomed to, but for the time being, safety is our top priority.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and cooperation,
Carmen Johnson, DDS
