COVID-19 Reopening Precautions

Muscaro & Martini Dentistry has reopened for patients as of Monday, May 4. As our community changes and adapts to what has happened these last few months, we’re all looking forward to resuming normal routines. To make that possible, we’ve implemented new infection control procedures to keep our patients and staff safe.

Our commitment to your health and safety will never change. We’d like to tell you about some of the new procedures that you’ll notice during your next appointment.

How We’re Keeping You Safe

Our goal is to keep all of our patients and staff members safe at our practice. We’re achieving that by adhering to all infection control recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

We’re staying up-to-date with these agencies and their guidance so that you can have peace of mind.

Changes You’ll See in the Office

In adherence with the recommended infection control procedures, we’ll be making some changes around the office. These changes are intended to keep all patients and staff as safe as possible.

Some of the changes include:

  • Screening questions. Before you come in for your appointment, we’ll ask you a few health screening questions. We’ll ask you the same questions again once you’re in the office. 
  • Hand sanitizer. We’ll provide hand sanitizer throughout the entire office. We’ll ask you to use it when you first enter the reception area for your appointment. Additionally, we ask that you please sanitize your hands after coughing or sneezing.
  • Face masks. We’re asking all patients to wear face coverings while in the waiting area for the safety of others. If you don’t have a mask, we’ll provide you with one when you enter.
  • Waiting room amenities. We’ve decided to remove magazines, children’s toys, etc., from our waiting room as a precaution. These items are hard to disinfect in communal spaces.
  • Appointment scheduling. We’re adjusting the way we schedule appointments to allow for social distancing between patients. This means you may be offered fewer options when scheduling your appointment.
  • Wait times. We’ll do our best to reduce waiting times in order to limit the number of patients in the reception area.

Questions? Contact Us

While parts of our office are changing, we’re still dedicated to providing you the same great dental care you’ve always received at Muscaro & Martini Dentistry.
