COVID-19 Update

“Safety first, safety always.”

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. We follow 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 have been following the activities of these agencies so we stay up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. This allows us to make sure our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see a number of changes when it is time for your child’s next appointment. These changes have been made to help protect our patients, parents/guardians, and staff and will depend on the current infection rates in our community. For example:

  • Our office may speak with you before your visit to ask some screening questions about your child. Please report any health changes and contact us to reschedule if any signs of sickness.
  • The waiting room is open at this time and we ask families to practice social distancing as much as possible. Please make sure your child brings a personal iPad, tablet, or toy if they would like to have something to play with during their appointment.
  • Masks are no longer required for entering healthcare facilities but you are welcome to wear one if desired. Hand sanitizer will be available to all who enter the office.
  • Patients may want a blanket or sweatshirt because the office will be a little cooler.

There may be other adjustments over time in order to keep up with the most current recommendations or community infection rates. We will do our best to keep you informed of these changes. At any point, if you have questions or concerns, please ask a team member or doctor. We are here to make you feel comfortable with choosing Raleigh Pediatric Dentistry for the dental care of your child. Thank you.

“Safety first, safety always!”
