Welcome to another week of social distancing! As we move into this new week, there's been lots of talks about re-openings across the country. We, too, are looking ahead to what our new normal will look like at Stefano Dental.
When and how that happens is still not definitive, but we're starting to picture and plan best practices to provide the safest and highest level of care for our patients.
We'll be using a different way to schedule patients, a different way to filter patients through the waiting room, and using different protective gear for patients staff.
Things might look and feel differently for a while. What will be the same, is the same excellent dental care and the same smiling staff, albeit behind masks.
They say you can smile with your eyes, be sure to see our smiles behind the masks.
Although we're not sure of when we're opening yet, we're starting to plan re-opening in phases. We're looking at best practices provided by the Center for Disease Control, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, as well as the Ohio Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
Please be patient with our staffing and procedure restrictions as we continue to prepare for the best and most safe practices during this transitional time.
Some extra precautions might be seem cumbersome and time-consuming, but please know we put SAFETY first for our staff and our patients.
We're all navigating new territory, so please know we're preparing for EXTRA-ordinary circumstances with EXTRA-ordinary precautions to continue to give EXTRA-ordinary dental care.
