COVID-19 Update For Patients

 
To our family of patients,
 
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community, and our country, have been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming patient care. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety.  We currently are anticipating reopening to patients starting on May 26, 2020.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
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). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations. 
 
You will see necessary changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes for the protection of our patients and staff. The following will apply:
 
1. Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.  The questionnaire is entitled “Patient Advisory and Acknowledgment” and can be found on our website at www.seabrightdentist.com
 
2. Temperatures will be taken upon arrival at the front door.
 
3. We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
 
4. At this time, we will not be utilizing the waiting room. Anyone accompanying you will have to wait in the car. Exceptions will be made for the elderly patients requiring assistance and minor patients
 
5. Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointments.
 
6. We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception areas at one time. 
 
We are looking forward to seeing our patients, neighbors and friends. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 732-530-5566, or request an appointment on our website. Please continue to check our website for updates. Thank you for being our patient. 
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Michele Brucker-Collier, Dr. Kevin B. Collier and the entire dental team
