While some health organizations have suggested that Americans avoid “routine” dental care, the American Dental Association, and Scott Dooley, D.D.S. agree that delayed dental treatment could lead to more harm than good. Even missing regular cleaning may mean additional appointments to repair the damage that could have been avoided. Our goal is to keep you smiling brightly every day! And that means never neglecting your oral hygiene!
We understand this is a concerning time. But know that our dental office has successfully reopened and everything we do is to keep our dental family safe. One thing for sure is Scott Dooley, D.D.S. has always taken infection control seriously and with COVID, more-so than ever before.
The right time is always sooner rather than later. Please don’t delay your next cleaning or dental appointment! Feel free to talk with us about the preventative measures we are taking and even ask for a less popular appointment time. We are here for you!
Dear Scott Dooley DDS patient Family,
As we keep our office open for all patients, please be assured that your health and the safety of our team is our top priority. We want to update you on our office, it’s measured re-opening, and the steps we are taking to ensure we do everything possible to keep our patients and our team healthy.
We have diligently worked as a team to retrain, add new safety protocols and equipment that are designed to make our office a safe environment for everyone. Our office procedures have temporarily changed and will include the following:
There will be a limit to appointments per day, roughly half of the regular appointment load. The points outlined below will lend clarity to this decision.
As always, we strictly adhere to all CDC and OSHA guidelines. The following are some new protocols we are implementing to minimize risks as directed by the Texas Dental Board, CDC, OSHA, and ADA:
We will take the temperatures of every team member, including Dr. Dooley, immediately upon arrival at work, and after lunch. Any team member at 100 F or above will go home. Every team member will answer the health questionnaire that our patients are required to answer, and will do so every day. If any questions disqualify the team member, they will be sent home following the same procedures we are asking our patients to follow.
You will find upon arrival that our furniture has been rearranged. You’ll also notice other changes made to ensure the health and well-being of our patients and our team.
Unfortunately, this virus isn’t going anywhere soon. However, we have always used universal precautions with the most state-of-the-art equipment and will continue to do so.
We are so grateful for every one of our patients, and the time away only served to make us even more thankful for each of you. You are the life-force of our practice, and this is why we are taking your safety VERY seriously. We would ask for your patience and understanding. Please forgive us as we are focusing on getting each of you back on track while not exposing our team members or patients to unnecessary risk.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office. We love all of you, here’s to your health and smile!
