Dear families of Mevoli & Hancock Family Dentistry,
COVID-19 is in the news everywhere, and we are closely monitoring the situation. We’re reaching out to assure you that you are safe at our practice. We know Coronavirus/COVID-19 is a concerning topic for people everywhere. As your partner in caring for your overall dental health and wellness, we want to ensure you still have access to dental care during this time. Our facility remains open at this time to provide safe service to all.
We already, as a daily practice, assure universal precautions as outlined by CDC and OSHA standards of infection control. Safety is always our number one focus. Our high standard of care ensures that your trust and safety are never compromised. We have recently updated our health and safety guidelines in direct response to the emergence of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). These guidelines are based on guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
These include updated hygiene practices, as provided by the CDC, that is good to follow in all seasons. Things like frequent and thorough hand washing, good coughing and sneezing etiquette, and avoiding direct contact with others when you are sick. Our team members are being asked to stay home and take care of themselves if they, or their family members, are ill. That’s one way we can help minimize the spread of the illness for both patients and team members.
Please continue to schedule your appointments as needed. However, if you are scheduled or need to schedule an appointment with our practice and are presenting symptoms of COVID-19, or are confirmed positive, please contact us so we can provide you options. Also, if you or anyone you have been in close contact with has traveled internationally within the last 60 days to an infected area, we kindly ask that you contact us for options.
These extended measures below are to further protect all our patients and team with the following additional protocols:
Before your appointment, you have the option to stay in your car instead of the waiting room until we’re ready to seat you in your personal operatory. Simply call us when you arrive, and we will let you know when we’re ready for you.
Upon entering our practice, you will be asked to sanitize your hands
At the beginning of every appointment, you will be asked to pre-rinse with Peroxyl.
You can be assured safety measures at Mevoli & Hancock Family Dentistry will continue to evolve as more information develops.
Thank you for your help in ensuring the continued good health of our community.
We look forward to serving you,
Dr. Mevoli, Dr. Hancock, and Staff
