November 2020 – Update Regarding COVID-19

Dental Associates resumed all dental care and services on May 20th, and we welcomed back our patients and their families. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same – our commitment to your safety.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have followed the guidelines published by the Dental Society of Delaware, the Department of Public Health, and the ADA.

In a recent message from the President of the Delaware State Dental Society, Dr. Vincent J. Daniels shares positive information:

Nationally, over one million dental visits have taken place since reopening began early this summer. To date, there have been no reports or incidents of COVID-19 exposure in a dental setting. This again is a testament to our profession and how serious we take the responsibility of caring for our patients, our staff, and our communities.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, as you may have seen during your visits to our offices. The American Dental Association (ADA) also reassures that because of safety policies and disinfectant practices dental offices have had for decades, it is still safe to go to the dentist, even during a pandemic. Dental health is important not only for your teeth but also because dental infections can lead to other ailments, including heart disease.

The CDC adds the top three oral conditions that impact overall health and quality of life are tooth decay (cavities), severe gum disease, and severe tooth loss. Periodontal dental disease can cause heart infection, lung infection, aspiration, and localized damage to mouth and teeth. The American Heart Association (AHA) says heart infection is caused by bacteria being introduced into the bloodstream as a result of poor dental hygiene or improper brushing that leads to gum and mouth injury.

Our primary concern remains the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff. We urge you to remain diligent with personal hygiene practices and follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC and your medical professionals. Please call the Dental Associates office most convenient for you to schedule your dental visit.

We value your trust and loyalty as we welcome back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

May 20, 2020 – COVID-19 Update:    WE ARE OPEN FOR ALL DENTAL CARE!

Welcome Back to Dental Associates of Delaware

We hope this message 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 established so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.

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 these 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.

As we take the proper steps to reopen our offices, we must adhere to the safest practices to support the well-being of our community. Please review the following guidelines regarding appointments in our office:

• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. Screening for symptoms and history should eliminate most of the risks.

• Any patient who currently has COVID-19, has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, will be rescheduled for a later date.

• For the near future, we ask that only the patient enter the office. A minor can come with one parent or guardian. Please do not bring any additional children to the office if they are not scheduled for an appointment.

• Each patient will have their temperature taken as well as any parent or guardian of a child who has a dental appointment. All staff and doctors will have their temperatures taken every day.

• Patients should wear their OWN mask into the office. The mask will be removed for the procedure and immediately replaced.

• Patients should brush and floss at home prior to their visit. Each patient will rinse with a special rinse when seated in the dental chair.

• 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.

• Our reception area will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, and other items that can be difficult to clean and disinfect.

• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.

• All touchable areas will be wiped down with a disinfectant to reduce the spread of infection.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Dear Dental Associates of Delaware Family:

As confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to grow in Delaware, we want to share with you how we are taking steps to provide the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.

We are closely following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for updates. In addition to our routine cleaning and sterilization procedures, we want you to know we have already begun taking extra precautions.

As we have always done, know that we sterilize every instrument used in your mouth. Items that cannot be sterilized are disposable, so only used for the first and last time on your visit. We use hospital-level disinfection in all areas in our office to destroy pathogens, and our team is highly trained in these protocols. This includes a thorough disinfecting protocol after every single patient.

We have practiced all CDC and OSHA standards of infection control daily, even prior to this virus. We treat everything to the highest standards for our patients’ and employees’ safety. As the coronavirus outbreak continues, we have instituted an all-hands-on-deck mentality, ensuring that our facilities are at perfection levels at all time. This includes increased protocols to address increased public awareness.

We ask you to also please join our efforts to maintain a safe environment for all:

• If you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home. Though we will miss seeing you, staying home will speed up your recovery time and decrease the chance of spreading germs. Please call our office to reschedule your appointment for 2 weeks after recovering from any respiratory illness.

• Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds – singing the “Happy Birthday” song 2x is a good way to count.

• We know it’s easy to forget but try not to touch your face or mouth with unwashed hands.

• Please do not share personal items such as drinks, food, or utensils.

• We ask if you have recently traveled abroad (China, South Korea, Japan, Iran, Italy) or have been in contact with anyone with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus (COVID-19), that you please wait to visit us until after you have been cleared by a medical professional.

We are so grateful for you and your shared efforts to help keep the germs at bay. If you’d like to check out more information- please visit cdc.gov.

Thank you for being a valued member of our Dental Associates of Delaware Family!
