Covid-19 Protocols

Dear Patients,

 I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirit.  Everyone has been through so much over the past year. A lot has changed in how we have to run the practice but not in our commitment to your safety.

As always, Infection control has been a top priority for our offices and it is done following all guidelines established by the CDC.  With the coronavirus and its implications, there are additional guidelines put forth by the Kentucky Board of Dentistry, Kentucky Department of Public Health, American Dental Association (ADA), CDC, and OSHA to amplify these infection and sterilization procedures.

You will see several changes when you arrive for your appointment to protect not only you but our team.

  • You will need to fill out and submit your paperwork (attached at the left side of this page) 24 hrs prior to your appointment.
  • You will need to wear a mask when entering, or moving about, the office.
  • Upon arrival, we ask that you REMAIN IN YOUR CAR and CALL THE OFFICE to let us know you have arrived.
  • We will be doing temperature checks on anyone who enters the office. Pateints with a temperatures of 100.4 or above will be asked to reschedule.
  • Our reception area is closed until further notice.
  • Prior to being seated for treatment, you will be asked to rinse with a mouthwash solution. This helps reducing the number of oral microorganisms.
  • Payments will be collected upon entry to the office, prior to treatment. Please have this ready when entering the office.

We are working diligently to keep everyone safe by implementing the new office protocols. We look forward to taking care of you and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and our team safe. If you would like to make an appointment please call the office, 859-734-4944.

Thank you for being our patient.  We value your trust and loyalty.

 

Respectfully,

Dr. Constance C. Huff and the Mercer Dental Care Team
