Welcoming All Patients Back, with extra safety precautions

Our community has been through a lot of the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming 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 our 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 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.

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’ll be asked those same questions again, when are in the office.
  • We have sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You 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, children’s toys and so forth, 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’re 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 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 (904)932-5396 or visit our website at www.quintondentist.com

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

Sincerely,

Dr. Ken Yorgey & Team

We recently took an entire staff trip to Columbus, Ohio for a continuing education course. I like to bring my staff with me so that our entire office can better serve our patients, both new and existing. Everyone had a great time and the courses were very “inspiring”.
