We are looking to forward gradually welcoming patients back into the office starting Wednesday, May 14th. While many things have changed due to regulations by the Iowa Dental Board, our concern for your health and safety has remained unchanged. We would not be opening back up if we did not feel it was safe and prudent to do so. We will be able to provide routine care at this time.
Infection control is always a top priority for us. We follow the CDC, ADA, and OSHA standards for infection control, but to increase our commitment to safety we have upgraded our facility with medical grade air filtration systems in the treatment rooms and waiting room. This will ensure that aerosols generated during treatment will not be able to linger in the air after your appointment. These will be running around the clock to ensure that we have a clean and safe environment to provide treatment.
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. These changes have been made to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
For those patients whose appointments we had to cancel due to our closure, a member of our staff we will be reaching out to you to reschedule your appointment.
You do not need to call us unless you have a question or dental emergency.
We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you! Thank you so much for your patience during these unprecedented times and please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
All the best,
Dr Eric Recker, Dr Leigh Rasmussen, Dr Josh Hones and the Recker Dental Care Team
COVID-19 DENTAL VISITS
The effects of COVID-19 have impacted every sector of our daily lives, including your future dental visits. Even though there has been a lot of change, dental professionals have and remain committed to your oral health, as well as the health and safety of their patients, staff, and community. Under guidance by CDC, Public Health, and the ADA, dentistry has always been a leader in infection control. Dental offices will continue these infection control practices to ensure all standards are met to keep patients and staff safe.
The next time you go to the dentist, you may have a new experience. Below are some examples of what to expect prior to your next dental appointment.
Together we are all part of the solution to keep you and your community safe and healthy!
