Hello Summers Ortho friends and family!
We have missed you and hope this letter 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 some of our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to you and your safety.
In this email we will explain some of these measures and new protocols that we will be following for now. We are not ready to admit this is the “New Normal” yet… just that we are implementing some new procedures for the near future and will continue to modify and provide the highest SO experience you have come to expect.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you most likely have noticed this during your visits to our office. Summers Orthodontics has always gone above and beyond in all aspects of our practice to benefit you and keep you safe. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable for our patients, their family, and our team.
Our office has always followed 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 will continue to 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, and surpass, each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help further protect our patients and staff. For example:
Please click the link below for the form that must complete BEFORE your arrival. We are working to make this 100% electronic, but for now, this form will need to be printed and brought with you to your appointment.
