COVID19/CORONAVIRUS OFFICE POLICY

There is no higher priority to our entire Glacier Peak Dentistry Family than the Safety of our Patients and Employees. We are continuously monitoring all warnings and precautions issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Dental Association (ADA), the Colorado Dental Association (CDA), and government agencies to limit exposure to the novel coronavirus causing the COVID-19 illness. For most people, the immediate risk of becoming seriously ill from the virus is thought to be low.

We want you to feel confident of your safety when coming into Glacier Peak Dentistry. As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures with the interest of our Patients’ and Employees’ health and safety.

In addition to taking Universal Precautions which include: wearing face masks, gloves, eye protection, washing hands before and after each patient, sterilizing all dental equipment after use, utilizing disposable single-use items, and disinfecting all surfaces after each use with disinfectant wipes that are effective against TB, Hepatitis-B, Hepatitis-C, bacteria (including MRSA), fungi, and viruses; we are disinfecting all surfaces in the reception area including tablets, pens, countertops, and doorknobs every hour, as well as removing all magazines, toys, and other items from the reception area. This goes beyond the standard CDC guidelines.

We are asking patients to participate in these precautions, including:

  1. Staggered appointment times so our reception area stays limited to one patient at a time
  2. Please arrive for your appointment at the specified time but if you are early, we ask that you stay in your car and text us that you have arrived.
  3. We ask that you do not bring other family members with you who do not need to be there.
  4. Upon arrival, we kindly ask that you use the hand sanitizer we have provided.
  5. Please disinfect your hands prior to using the tablet to fill out any documents we may need from you.
  6. If using the restroom or exiting and re-entering our office, we ask that you use the hand sanitizer provided upon re-entry.
  7. Please refrain from removing your dental appliance or touching your mouth while in the dental office.
  8. Please note that we will be incorporating social distancing by limiting social interactions, including handshaking, as a means of decreasing possible transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For patients who are experiencing a dental emergency, rest assured, our office will still be open to take care of you. We will be screening patients over the phone as well as upon check-in to ensure everyone’s safety.

Thank you for your patience and trust in Glacier Peak Dentistry. We are prepared to navigate through these challenging circumstances with your safety and confidence in our office at the forefront of everything we do.
