Reopening May 26, 2020


We hope this update finds you and your family in good health!   We all have been through a lot in the last 2 months.   As always we remain committed to your health and well-being.  Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice.  In fact all personnel are trained in infection control and are, by law, required to receive training in it every two years.  In light of the COVID 19 pandemic, we have increased our efforts to insure your safety.  Our office follows infection control guidelines suggested by the CDC, American and California Dental Associations, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.  As a result you will likely see some of the following changes. 

1 Our Office will communicate with you prior to your appointment to ask you some screening questions.  These questions will be repeated to you when entering the office.                                                                    2 Face coverings are suggested for all in the office.                                                                                                3 No touch temperature will be taken                                                                                                                       4 All staff members wearing masks                                                                                                                            5 Hand sanitizer will be available to all                                                                                                                      6 High volume evacuation will be in all treatment rooms                                                                                      7 Appointments will be managed to allow maximum social distancing                                                              8 Increased office hours to allow longer appointment times with increased intervals                                    9 Staff wearing increased Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We will continue to monitor the different sources of guidelines to enact any new changes that need to be made.  We look forward to seeing you and are available for any questions you might have. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back. Dr. Jim, Dr. Charlie and Staff
