As we’ve been monitoring this rapidly changing nature of COVID-19, we want you to know that we are doing our best to navigate. Together, as a community we are facing trying times and the current pandemic is affecting all of us. We wanted to reach out with an update on how we are handling our business to best support the health and safety of both you and our team.
First, we give our loving thoughts for anyone who has been impacted by the virus and we as a team are taking precautions in our office.
- Sanitizing the office
- Sending home sick employees
- All required PPE including N95 masks
- Face shields
- HEPA filters throughout the office and in every treatment room
- UV-Ultraviolet air purification system installed in HVAC system
- Hypochlorous Acid fogging of every treatment room between patients
- Isolating magnetic door closers on all treatment rooms
- Thorough prescreening process of patients and the team prior to entering the office, including taking temperatures

For our patients that have concerns, the feedback that we are getting from our returning patients on Google and Facebook since we have reopened has been overwhelmingly positive! Many of our patients that have returned to see us the past few months have commented how safe they feel with our COVID-19 safety protocols.
As we deal with the uncertainty, we appreciate your understanding and hope at the very least that times like these remind us that we are all in this together.
We hope to see your healthy, happy faces soon!

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity.

To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
