COVID 19 Update

After a difficult period of being closed, we are excited to open our doors to welcome patients on Monday May 11th, 2020. 

The safety of our patients, staff, and community is our priority.  We are following the most recent COVID-19 infection control recommendations by the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  As a result, you will notice some changes at your next appointment.  We ask for your cooperation and understanding as we work together to implement these changes. 

Appointments will be scheduled in consideration of social distancing between patients.  This may mean a longer wait time for an appointment 

Prior to your appointment, our office will communicate with you to ask some COVID-19 screening questions.  Upon arrival of your appointment, you will also be asked those same COVID-19 questions.

We are unable to provide facemasks due to limited availability, therefore we ask that you wear your own facemask to your appointment.

We will also take temperatures on all persons entering the building.

We will have hand sanitizer available at check-in and ask you to use it upon entering the building.  

Please bring your own pen for filling out consent forms, etc.

Our waiting room will temporarily no longer offer magazines and seating is arranged to allow for social distancing.  

Only the patient will be allowed in the office unless special circumstances arise or if the patient is a minor. We ask that any accompanying guests wait in the car during treatment. 

Although we are implementing many changes and the atmosphere will feel a little different, our commitment to our patients will not change.  We look forward to providing quality dental care to you and are excited to see you all!

If you had an appointment scheduled during our recent closure, we will be reaching out to you to get scheduled as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your trust, patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.   If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our office.

We want your first visit to be more about getting to know you and less about paperwork, so we recommend printing the new patient forms and completing them in advance of your initial appointment.

 

 We always welcome new patients of every age. Whether you are new to Asheville or seeking an improved dental experience, we invite you to call our office for additional information.
