To Our Patients:
Our Team at Island Dental Associates is well aware of the situation we as a community are facing. We understand the concerns, and uneasiness surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19), and we are continuing to monitor it.
Island Dental Associates’ doors will remain open, to help our patients and our community. We want everyone to know that we always follow universal protocols, for the safety and care of our patients and staff. We are watching the ongoing situation closely, and taking extra proactive measures. Hygiene standards for our patients, office environment and the team will always be a top priority.
Our office is routinely disinfecting all doorknobs, countertops, and any other surface area multiple times a day. Our employees are washing/sanitizing their hands after each and every patient and prior to seeing the next patient.
We are implementing a screening process for everyone in the office, including inquiring on whether they have been to certain countries in the past 14 days or have come into contact with anyone who has and whether they have experienced any flu-like symptoms within the past 14 days. Should anyone respond yes to any of the above, we will be rescheduling appointments and/or sending them home.
Our team is here to assist you in all ways from continuing to provide you with dental care and accepting any emergency walk-ins. We understand that our community may be affected in all ways from health to financial hardship. We are being extra considerate of this and have many resources readily available to help you so that your dental care is never compromised. Do not hesitate to contact our office with concerns of any nature, we are all in this together.
The health and safety of our patients and employees are of the highest priority and during this time period, we are taking all the necessary precautions to continue to provide you your dental care in the safest environment.
