COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update
Dear Patients and Friends,
With the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) (www.cdc.gov) pandemic our primary concern is the health and safety of our patients, families and our employees.
The segment of the population that is the greatest risk are our older citizens and people that have underlying chronic medical conditions. These chronic conditions are heart disease, lung disease, respiratory disease and immunocompromising diseases.
To keep yourself safe stay out of large crowds and avoid rubbing your eyes, nose and mouth with your hands. Wash your hands frequently. Distance yourself from others that have cold or flu like symptoms. If you have a fever please stay home! Finally cover your mouth and nose when you cough &/or sneeze with the inside of hour elbow.
As a result of the CDC’s guidelines one of the safest places you could be other than your own home is a dental office. Our office has a spacious reception room so patients have plenty of room to spread out & we pride ourselves on running on schedule so you are not waiting to be seated in the clinical area. All of these disinfection guidelines are followed every day in our office! So, this is no change for my team & I. Every surface is disinfected after every patient. This includes all countertops, clinical chairs & stools, overhead lights and all x-ray equipment. Some of these devices are further protected with disposable plastic covers. This goes along with our stringent sterilization procedures for all of our clinical instruments & the utilization of disposable items when indicated.
My team & I are constantly washing our hands, changing our gloves & masks and wearing protective eye wear. We also will be taking every patient’s temperature during their appointment until this pandemic is over. So, if you have any questions or concerns of any type please call us to assist you during these trying times.
Sincerely in Good Health,
Dr. John Conness & Team
