COVID SAFETY

Beyond the CDC’s standards for COVID-19, our team is taking extra precautions to keep you healthy

Simplified Check-In

Upon arrival at your appointment we ask that you please remain in your car and call our office to let us know you have arrived and our outside.

For the OKC office please call: (405) 879-0000.

For the Yukon office please call: (405) 354-4806

Once your room has been personally prepared for you, we will call you and let you know to please come in and we kindly ask that you wear a mask. If you do not have one, we will provide you with one.

FYI – Due to Covid-19 we will no longer allow patients to wait in the reception area and have removed all snacks, the Keurig Coffee maker, magazines and even the water dispenser to eliminate the surfaces that the virus can attach to. We do have 8oz water bottles available for you so please ask if you are interested.

Digital Covid-19 Patient Pre Screening Questionnaire and Paperless New Patient Forms

We want to eliminate the paper that you fill out in the office so we are requiring all forms to be filled out electronically . You should have received prior to your appointment, a text or email with a COVID pre-screening questionnaire. 

No Touch Thermometers and Hydrogen Peroxide Rinses

Once seated in your assigned room, your dental assistant will take your temperature, review the questionnaire and have you rinse for 1 minute with a hydrogen peroxide rinse.

Fast Dental Appointment Check-In and Check out

Your appointment check-ins and check-outs will be ultra-quick. You’ll notice hand sanitizer, sneeze guards, and added physical distancing for your protection -though we definitely miss all of the high-fives, fist bump, handshakes, and hugs. We will allow an occasional elbow tap from time to time!

Portable Floor Sentry

We have taken extra precautions to protect our patients by installing several portable floor sentry units. Each unit is designed to remove 99% of the aerosols created during a dental procedure.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We’ve added more PPE for the entire team including KN95 masks, face shields, and gowns.  Having the PPE is one thing, but understanding how to wear it, change it, and handle it is what makes it effective.

Patience & Understanding

We understand that you’ve waited a long time for your appointment due to Covid-19 shutdowns and are eager to serve you once again. We are working hard to reschedule your appointment based on their urgency and the order the appointments were originally cancelled. Please be patient with us as we adjust to the new protocols (it takes us much longer to clean the rooms to make sure they are safe for you to be treated). We look forward to seeing you again soon.

How Do I Take Care of My Teeth During if I Miss an Appointment Due to Covid-19?

The Covid-19 shutdowns and quarantines mean that everyone gets a little extra homework keep theire mouth healthy until their next appointment. Here’s what you can do to keep your smile healthy:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss at least once per day.
  • Eat Clean. Your diet plays an important role in your overall health.
  • Avoid sugar. Sugar increases the amount of bacteria that grows in your mouth causing more plaque and possibly cavities.
  • Avoid tobacco. Smoking and chewing can stain your teeth, cause gum disease, and eventually lead to oral cancer.
  • Brush your tongue and the roof of your mouth to reduce the amount of plaque-causing bacteria.
  • Drinks plenty of water
  • Be quick to swap out your toothbrush 
  • Store your toothbrush away from other toothbrushes (and away from the toilet).

We look forward to seeing you in the dental office again soon for a proper cleaning!
