How COVID-19 Impacts Your Dental Care At Our Practice READ MORE

Practice Update Regarding Coronavirus 

Our office will reopen on Monday, June 1.

In preparation for our office re-opening, we have implemented the following safety measures as mandated by the state and in accordance with best health practices from the American Dental Association (ADA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

 
NEW SAFETY MEASURES

Screenings:

  • All patients will be screened (paperless screening) to make sure they are not experiencing any coronavirus symptoms.
  • A staff member will meet you at the front door and take your temperature. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, we will reschedule your appointment.

Minimize number of people in the office: 

  • Patients will wait in their car instead of in the waiting room. Please arrive 10 minutes early and contact our office when you have arrived. For the Indianapolis office, call us at 317-293-3000 or text us at 317-803-3300.  For the Carmel office, you may call or text us at 317-803-3300. 
  • Only the patient and a critical caregiver are allowed into the office.
  • Our office is closed to the public except for patients and healthcare workers (no sales or delivery people will enter the facility)

Limiting Exposure:

  • We ask that you wear a face-covering or mask before entering. If you do not have one then we can provide one for you. 
  • Our staff members are up-to-speed on COVID-19 symptoms and utilize recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
     
  • All flyers, brochures, displays, toys, magazines, etc. have been removed to eliminate contamination risks.
  • We have installed temporary barriers at the front desk and in between rooms to limit the spread of aerosols in the office. 
  • Online Payment System: We have implemented an online portal for secure contactless credit card payments to reduce germ spread via clipboards, pens, and money.

Disinfectant Protocols:

  • Staff members will clean treatment rooms and equipment before and after every patient according to CDC and ADA guidelines.
  • Staff members will continually clean all high-touch areas.
  • We have added time between appointments to allow for sanitizing and to keep patients apart from one another to avoid high volume or density.
  • We ask that all patients use the hand sanitizer provided at the front door upon entering. It will also be available in other areas of the office.



 

 

As always, our main concern is the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at any time. To request an appointment, please click below.
