We are delighted to inform you that Governor Northam has allowed dental offices to open and provide care to patients as of May 1st. Our office will open starting Monday May 4, 2020. Please call our office to schedule your appointment at (703) 820-8282.
We remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. You will notice that our staff will be using additional protective equipment. We ask for your understanding.
Due to these procedures you will find we are limiting your time in the office. We will send you a wellness-check form the day before your visit. Please fill out and return before your appointment date. We will ask these same questions again when you arrive at the office. We will also send you new patient registration & health forms to be completed before your visit. Upon arrival at building patients should call or text the office from their car or when outside the building. We will notify you when we are ready to see you.
All Patients must wear masks to be admitted into the office. Home-made masks are ok. We will take your temperature when you enter our office. Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or water to reduce contamination. Patients should practice social distancing when in the office Children must remain in control of parents at all times.
Children less than 12 years of age may be accompanied by ONLY one parent or responsible party. No infants accompany the parent unless the infant is being treated.
Multiple members of a family with adjacent appointments may be scheduled at the same time or one appointment after the other.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the above steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Thank you, Dr. Lidia Tekle and team
