COVID-19 Coronavirus precautions
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, our team members, and West Michigan community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.
Now that we have returned to our office you will see some changes as we installed air purification units with medical grade HEPA-13 filters in our patient lounge and each treatment room to remove airborne viruses. Our team is also wearing more protective gear than you are used to seeing while we are being thorough inquiring about your health during your upcoming appointments. Our office has alway had two sterilizers instead of one, used the recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and performed disinfection to the degree that we have had an outstanding history of office safety throughout my 30+ year career. A positive thought is that with all our spare time during the Stay at Home it gave us the opportunity to access more web based information that will allow us to keep that record intact!
We encourage everyone to follow these best practices to keep yourself and others healthy:
- Wash your hands often with soap & water for at least 20 seconds, especially after visiting the restroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or touching your face.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Maintain social distance (6 feet)
- Stay home when you are sick and keep your distance from anyone that appears to be sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with tissues (discard in the trash after use) and wash your hands. If you do not have a tissue cough or sneeze into your elbow or shirt sleeve not into your hands.
- Use hand sanitizer frequently.
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, our team members, and West Michigan community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone both safe and healthy.
Please contact our office to schedule your necessary treatment or to reschedule your appointment if you are coughing, sneezing, have a fever, are feeling unwell or have recently traveled to one of the high risk areas within the last few weeks.
