Dear Valued Patients,
We miss you dearly and we hope that you have all been safe during these strange and difficult times. We would like to thank you for waiting patiently for our doors to reopen and we are very excited to see all of your faces soon. However, it will not be right back to normal. We would like to take this time to reiterate that your safety and the safety of our team is Omni Dental’s top priority. We will be closely adhering to the recommendations and guidelines that have been outlined by the CDC, OSHA, DOH and the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA).
We ask that you assist us in protecting you and our team by kindly adhering to the following protocols at your next visit:
- Please reschedule if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms (cough, fever, etc.)
- Please reschedule if you have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
- Please arrive with a face covering
- Please sanitize you’re hands prior to entry
- Please do not bring anyone to your appointment who is not absolutely necessary
- Please wait in your car and call us once you arrive (we will come out to your car to get you once your treatment room has been properly cleaned)
- Please leave any unnecessary belongings in your car including jackets unless you would like to wear it during your appointment
- Your temperature will be taken with a forehead thermometer upon entry. If you have a fever, you will be rescheduled 2+ weeks out.
