Video TranscriptHey everyone, good news, the governor says that dentists can go back to work! That’ll be great news for our patients.
I now have a legal pad with patients’ names on both sides that have problems that are so anxious to get back in. So I just want to come to you today and give you a little bit of information about differences that you’ll see now that you’ll be able to come back into the office now that we’ll be open again, these will all be from the guidelines from the Ohio Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Ohio State Dental Board. So, one of the things that you’ll notice that’ll be a little different is that you’ll be able to wait in your car instead of in our reception area, and when your appointment time is near, my office manager will give you a call, and you can come right on into the office and the clinician will be waiting for you to take you right back to your operatory for your treatment.

Another little difference is, at each visit, every contact that we have, we’ve been giving a questionnaire, it has nine simple questions about your health, it’s just a screening,
we’ll ask you those questions. We’ll also take your temperature with one of these little no-touch forehead temperatures to make sure you don’t have a temperature. Oh, and by the way, we’ll do this to ourselves and do the screening ourselves every time we come to work in the morning. We’ll also you’ll notice there will be some different types of equipment. You’ll see the N-95 masks or a KN-95 mask. We’ll be using face shields, some gowns. Yeah, the main thing really that’s keeping us from opening right away is just sourcing in the equipment. There’s been a real shortage of it. The governor’s been great, I heard he made an announcement that they’re going to try to do something with the supply chain to get more of that equipment into the dental offices, so that’s good. But the soonest we could probably open up really would be maybe the sixth, seventh of next week. Practically, it’ll probably be more like the eleventh. It just depends on when all the equipment comes in. So we’re excited about that, we’re excited to help our patients out, we know that some of you may have some questions, I want you to feel free to call our office, and one thing that I did want to get across is if you’re in an at-risk group, or if you’re just nervous about coming in so soon after being cooped up in the house and hearing all these warnings on the news, please, if you’re in that group or if you just feel nervous, just call our office, we’ll push out your appointment until a time that you just feel better about it. I don’t want you to feel any anxiety about that. We’ll make sure we do whatever we need to do to make you feel comfortable.

Now the other thing that I wanted to mention, and here’s my announcement, my big announcement! This goes for really anybody, whether you’re a patient of ours, or you know somebody who’s not a patient of ours if you have a question about whether a condition you’re dealing with is serious enough whether it’s worth leaving your home to be seen at the dentist, I want you to call our office. I will be glad to speak with you and give you some professional advice, we just want to be helpful, and give you an idea whether or not ‘yeah that is something that probably should be seen,’ or ‘maybe it’s something that could be put off, or put off into the future.’ But I’d be glad to help you with those, make those decisions. If you’ll pass that word around–One thing I want you to be confident about, the American Dental Association had a meeting, it was for all the dentists in Ohio, everybody I know attended, wherever you go, whoever your dentist is, I want you to know and feel confident that they all will have been given the same guidelines, they’ll all have the same equipment to keep you safe, to keep their team safe. So I don’t want you to feel any anxiety about that. So, please, call us if you have any questions. Other than that, we’re anxious to get you back in, give you that same great care that
you’ve always been getting from us.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the office, and thank you so much.

We’ll see you soon.
