Our Commitment to Safety

 

We wanted to connect with each of you regarding the current status of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). It is having an increased impact on our community and we feel the importance to share with you the steps and measures we are taking to keep our patients, employees and the community healthy and safe.

Infection control and cleanliness have always been a top priority at Community Health & Dental Care. We use universal precautions when dealing with all patients.  This means treating all body fluids as if they are infectious and taking the proper precautions with personal protective equipment according to CDC guidelines. Our offices and health centers are cleaned and sanitized throughout the day, and we have increased that frequency to hourly with the present situation. Hand sanitizer is positioned throughout the office as well as anti-bacterial soap by every sink.

We have instructed our employees on how to stay healthy and to stay home if not feeling well. We ask the same of our patients. If you have been exposed to COVID-19, traveled outside the United States and display symptoms of the virus, please call our office for advice.  We will continue to monitor the situation. Our decisions will be based on guidance from the CDC as well as local and federal government and public health agencies.

As we have prepared for the Coronavirus with preventive and proactive protocols, we feel confident that our offices are safe and will remain open at this time. We hope the current environment begins to resolve quickly, but every effort will be made to keep us all healthy.

We will maintain thorough communication and will keep you informed of any new recommendations.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by COVID-19.

Thank you for your loyalty to Community Health & Dental Care.
