Sneeze Guard Installation – We have installed sneeze guards at the reception counters to protect patients and staff from airborne contaminants.

Dear Dental Patient Family:

We have reopened! Our office follows 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 follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued and to ensure infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations. When you receive care, we want to make sure it is both safe and comfortable.

We are excited to tell you about enhancements we have made to our office environment as well as new protocols we have in place to maintain the well-being of our patients and staff as our community faces the COVID-19 pandemic.

Office Enhancements and New Protocols

Sneeze Guard Installation – We have installed sneeze guards at the reception counters to protect patients and staff from airborne contaminants.

Staff Screening – We will be screening staff daily and taking staff temperatures to ensure we are coming to the office healthy.

A dental assistant as well as Dr. Maribelle Tam will have a new look when you see them next. They will be sporting face shields, masks and gowns, when appropriate, as added protection.

Reception Area Routine Disinfection – We will be wiping down all touchable surfaces (counters, chairs, doorknobs, switches, etc.) on a regular basis with EPA-approved cleaners. We have also removed all potential COVID-19 transmission material from the reception area (magazines and coffee machine) and will prop the reception area door open to limit surface contamination.

Pre-appointment Patient Screening Procedures – We will be screening our patients prior to all appointments. This screening protocol will include completion of a brief screening questionnaire as well as taking patient temperatures in effort to identify patients who pose a potential risk for COVID-19.

Staggered Appointment Times and New Check-In Procedures – We will be limiting as much as possible the number of patients in our office at any given time. To that end, we will have staggered appointment times as well as new check-in procedures.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. We want to assure you that not just your oral health, but your overall health is of utmost importance to us.

Dr. Maribelle Tam DDS General and Family Dentistry
