This is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, and we will provide updated information as it becomes available.

Dear Patients,

As the Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak unfolds, I want to assure you that I am closely following all recommendations from the CDC (Center of Disease Control) and ADA (American Dental Association). I am dedicated to keep all patients and staff safe during these challenging times.

For the time being, our office hours remain unchanged.

We are taking extra precautions to ensure everyone’s safety.

Social distancing is encouraged by:
o Asking patients to wait in their cars until their appointment time (we will call you if we are running ahead or behind schedule)
o Asking patients to not bring children or others along (unless patient requires a driver)
o Placing chairs further apart in the waiting area and installing a clear partition barrier

Possibility of contamination is reduced by:
o Removing our complementary snacks, magazines, non-essential décor, kids play area, couch pillows.
o Encouraging single use of pens/sharpies to fill out paperwork

All common areas (including door knobs) will be disinfected frequently

Hand sanitizer and soap is available

– At the beginning of each dental appointment:
o Patients & staff will be required to wash hands
o Temperature of each patient will be taken
o Patients will be asked to rinse with antimicrobial rinse
o Doctor & Staff will be asked to wear face shield in addition to mask and protective eye wear.
o Patients will be encouraged to wash hands before leaving our office

Please, call to reschedule your appointment if:
– You feel ill (running a fever, have a cough or trouble breathing)
– You have traveled internationally in the past 2 weeks
– You have been in contact with individuals who are confirmed to have COVID-19.
– You have an underlying health condition that puts you at higher risk for getting COVID-19.

These are challenging times, but with faith and support from each-other we will persevere.

As always, I sincerely thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

Wishing health and Blessings to all,

Dr. Tina Lefta
