Please do not enter the office unprompted. When you arrive to the parking lot in advance of your appointment, please wait in your car and call our office, and we will invite you into the waiting room when safe. Please limit accompanying family members to one, only if needed. Pre-visit COVID-19 screening questions can be completed ahead of time via phone or email. Please enter the office wearing a mask, and if you forget one, we can meet you outside and provide one. Temperature readings will be taken in the waiting room prior to entering the clinical area. After your appointment, you will exit through the back hallway.
As we move forward towards a “new normal”, each person/family must determine their own comfort level. I appreciate that despite the above precautions, some of you may not yet feel comfortable returning to the office due to age, preexisting conditions, proximity to high-risk loved ones, or personal choice. If you fall into this category, please let us know well in advance of any scheduled appointments, and please do your very best to care for yourself at home. This includes thorough, consistent brushing and flossing, rubber tip use, and oral rinses or prescription toothpaste, if discussed with me prior. Please understand that I cannot be responsible for advancement of dental and periodontal disease due to deferred care. If you would like help weighing your dental risk, I can be available for teledentistry consultations as needed.
Thank you for your trust and support, and for helping us continue to love what we do. Let’s all stay healthy, patient, and kind as we move into this next phase.
All my best, Jeffrey A. Diamond
