Your health and safety have always been our top priority. That has never changed—in fact, it has only intensified.

As a team of trained medical professionals, we are dedicated to maintaining a safe environment for our patients. We know that now, moving forward, our commitment to your safety is even more important to you.

Rigorous infection control procedures have always been at the core of everything we do at Dr. Harman Dental Care. While continuing to meet the traditional CDC and OSHA requirements, we will also be implementing new, additional safety protocols.

New Dental Office Protocols: What to Expect

The next time you come into our dental office, you may notice some of these new safety protocols. For example, we might:

  • Be wearing additional personal protection equipment
  • Request that you wear a mask to your appointment
  • Ask to take yours and other patients’ temperatures on arrival
  • Ask you to rinse your mouth with an antimicrobial rinse
  • Request that you wait in the treatment room or your vehicle instead of the waiting room
  • Request that you do not bring visitors with you to your appointment.

Please note that these are only examples of the new protocols. As the situation changes, the protocols we follow may change as well.

These new protocols will help maintain a safe environment while we address your dental needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if anyone on your team has been exposed to COVID?

We are screening team members each day as they enter the practice and following all infectious protocols to prevent exposure. If any team member had been exposed to a positive COVID-19 case within the last 14 days, they are on a self-quarantine and will not be returning to work.

How can I help protect myself when I come into the office? Should I wear protective equipment, like a mask?

If you have a face mask that covers your mouth and nose, you can wear one to your appointment. If you have forgotten your mask, please phone the office and we will meet you at the lobby door with one.  Please give us a call if you have any concerns about wearing a mask at your appointment.

How often does your office disinfect treatment rooms?

We clean between each patient and are doing a deep cleaning of the office every day. As an extra precaution, we are screening each patient and team member as they arrive at the practice and we are not allowing unnecessary guests to accompany patients in the office.
