UPDATE May 17, 2021
It has been widely reported in the media that the CDC has changed their guidance on mask-wearing for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19. However, please note that this will not change anything in terms of how Michigan dental offices operate.
For now we will continue to follow MIOSHA and MDA emergency rules that require mask to be worn for both employees and patients.
June 1 2020
We are now open as of June 1 per Governor Whitmer’s direction.
We have been thinking about you and hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. Everyone has been through a lot and is ready to start normal routines again. As we welcome you back to our office, we want to reassure you that your safe treatment here is our number one goal.
We are following the most recent advice from the CDC and our professional organizations to make changes to keep you, our other patients, and our staff, safe from infection. Some changes include:
*Our staff will ask you screening questions before your appointment.
*We may ask you to wait in your car instead of the waiting room until your appointment time.
*We also ask that you come into the office alone. If necessary, one caregiver or family member may come in with the patient.
*We ask that everyone who enters the building and office wear a face covering or mask.
*Please use hand sanitizer that we have available when you come into the office.
*We will take your temperature before your appointment.
*We have removed hard-to-disinfect items in the waiting room to make it easier to clean frequently during the day.
*We are allowing more time between appointments to manage social distancing between patients.
*You may see that all staff, including the front staff, will be wearing masks or behind a plexy divider.
*There may be other changes as we try to keep social distancing to six feet.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our office. Please call our office at 616.447.3660 if you have any questions or to make an appointment.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Dr. Brennan and team
