Keeping You Safe — Always! | Covid-19 Message
Keeping You Safe – Always!
Like many of you, I have received a number of e-mails from restaurants, retail businesses,
and service businesses during the past week assuring me of their commitments to wash
their hands more frequently and to disinfect the public areas more thoroughly with the threat
of this new virus. I must say that it surprises me to know that they haven’t done these things
in the past since they are all simple, common sense approaches to staying well.
Please rest assured that we are continuing to use the strategies that we have
always utilized to provide the best infection control to you — our family of patients.
We have always been prepared to protect you from any threat of infection, and this
commitment to you continues during this challenging time. We have always sterilized all
of our equipment or used disposable items when necessary. We have always utilized frequent
and thorough handwashing practices. We have always disinfected with the best products available
our counter-tops, tray tables, and any other surfaces with which you come in contact. We have
always wrapped our equipment in plastic wraps of varying sizes to keep you safe. We have
always worn gloves and protective gear to keep you safe as well as keeping our team
members safe. We have always asked our team members to stay home when they have
been sick—our policy has always been that they must be naturally “fever-free” for at least
24 hours before returning to work.
Our newest addition to staying safe and healthy within our tropical resorts are ionic
air purifiers which are found now inside each treatment room! You might be
interested to know that they are running twenty-four hours a day—seven days
a week! This addition was Divinely Inspired as we were searching for ways to make
our tropical resorts even healthier for our patient family and our team members way
before the virus reared its ugly head in the United States.
Regarding “social distancing”, we will modify the schedule so that your seating is away
from other patients at this time. If you are early, you may need to wait for the actual
start time of your appointment. Further, if you would be more comfortable wearing
a mask and/or gloves while visiting our office, we will have them available for you.
As we annually update your medical history, we will assist you with the forms so
that you will not need to touch additional items in the office. As always, we will
make all computer notations, and we will customize care for each person.
If you select a magazine, newspaper, or book to enjoy, we will send it with you
in one of our famous “green bags” as a gift!
Finally, your health and well-being remain as our top priority! If you are feeling
sick or feverish, please consider re-scheduling your visit for April. We want
to limit the spread of all illness—as always!
It is our belief that our locations are the safest places to be as we continue
to deliver the dental care that you want, deserve, and need!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Dr. Len Anglis and Team
P.S. If you find yourself working from home or have had your work schedule
altered by the changes made, please give us a call, and we can make arrangements
for your dental care earlier than we planned!
