Dear Valued Patients of Reading Orthodontics,
On behalf of the entire team at the office, I hope this message finds you and your loved ones, safe and healthy during this unique time in our lives. We have been busy preparing for your safe return to our office, and I would like to share with you some of the changes you will notice.
In keeping with ADA, and CDC guidelines and recommendations, we will be practicing social distancing throughout the office, as well as changing our confirmation, check-in, and check-out procedures.
You will be contacted by phone, prior to your dental appointment, and we will be triaging your visit by asking you some health questions, inquiring about your current health, and discussing your expectations upon returning to our office. We will be talking about your scheduled dental appointment, as well as collecting estimated copayments over the phone. By moving forward this way, upon reopening, we will be minimizing face to face interactions at the front desk area.
Please visit our website at, https://www.readingortho.com, and under forms, you will be able to complete your patient forms prior to your appointment.
When you arrive at our office, we ask you to remain in your car, and call us at 781-358-8191 to let us know you are here. We will call you and let you know when you can come into the office, as we are practicing social distancing and only allowing a certain number of patients at one time, into the building.
Only the patient will be brought into the office for the appointment, no companions or additional family members can accompany you into the office; with the exception of children, who can have 1 parent or guardian with them for their appointment.
We will be taking your temperature, with a touchless thermometer, prior to you entering the office
Once you arrive in the office, you will be given a mask, as well as hand sanitizer.
Adhering to OSHA recommendations, we are no longer allowing cell phone use in the office.
You will notice that in keeping with the CDC, ADA, and OSHA guidelines, we have removed all toys, pamphlets, decorative pillows, and television remote controls from the reception and front desk areas; in order to eliminate congregating in the reception area, ensuring social distancing protocols.
You will also notice that we are continuing to utilize our protective equipment, PPE, for the safety and health of our patients and our entire team, as we always have. Face Masks, Face Shields, and Disposable gowns will be seen throughout the office. We have always followed health and safety guidelines, and we will continue to do so.
We will be reaching out to you via phone and or email as we get closer to our resumption of Dentistry to set up your needed appointments.
Thank you for your patience during this time, as we have missed you all, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
