Dental sealants can also help adult patients. Dentists give sealants to younger children to prevent cavities. Yet, cavities still form even during adulthood. That is why adult patients can now get dental sealants as well. These protective coatings provide the same protection regardless of age. If you want to know if dental sealants can help…
Oral hygiene is critical for people of all ages, but it is especially important for the elderly. A person in their senior years may be more prone to dental problems such as cavities, gum disease and infections. If you are in this age group, you should follow your dentist’s recommendations to take good care of…
The California Department of public health has provided guidance for resuming deferred and preventive Dental care. We will be resuming all dental care starting May 18, 2020.
To our patients, we hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of those agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you arrive to the office.
- We ask that all patients wear a mask to the office.
- We ask that patients call the office upon arrival.
- All patients will have their temperature taken prior to entering the office.
- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or a coffee bar, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
- We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (661)323-7337 or visit our website at www.brimhalldentalgroup.com
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Dr. Simpson, Dr. Kiuftis, and staff
