COVID-19 Update Letter

July 9, 2020

Dear friends and patients,

We hope you and your families have been doing well during this challenging time.  Dentistry as you know it has changed.  We are slowly starting to see patients again as new office protocols go into place, and as we get supplies to keep you and our staff safe.  Your patience and understanding have been greatly appreciated as we navigate this pandemic.

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).  Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable

We are now asking all patients to please wear a mask when you enter the office.  Be prepared to answer COVID-19 screening questions, to use hand sanitizer, and to have your temperature taken.  For your own peace of mind, you may bring your own eye protection to wear during treatment, or we will continue to provide safety glasses for you.

We will contact you and confirm your appointment.  Due to new protocols, your cleaning appointments will be scheduled for more time and therefore, fewer patients can be seen each day.  Unfortunately, it may take a while to get everyone back on schedule.

**If you have not done so yet, please provide us with your e-mail, as we will be using your e-mail for all future communications.  Send to [email protected]

As always, if you are experiencing a dental emergency, please contact Dr. Hollister on his cell phone:  805-440-9563

Stay well and keep flossing!
