Important notice about COVID-19
Thank you, valued patients, for the continued trust you place in us when you allow us to care for the dental needs of you and your family. It is so important to us to let you know that we are taking steps to protect the health and well-being of Morgantown Dental Group (MDG) patients and staff in response to the risk posed by the new Coronavirus.
To make sure you can visit us with confidence, we’re sharing our current protocols, tips to stay healthy, and what you should do before visiting our office. Your family’s health is our top priority, so we are providing you with the information needed to safely access dental care.
What Are We Doing?
MDG takes special care to sanitize our equipment and treatment areas between patients. We’ve expanded our normal protocols and have began taking more detailed steps to disinfect non-treatment areas such as the waiting/reception area on a more frequent basis. We monitor our supplies carefully to assure we remain capable of providing expert care during this time of supply shortages.
What Should You Do Before an Appointment to MDG?
The health and safety of our patients, employees, and community is our top priority. In this time of health risk, we must all work collaboratively through open and honest communication in order to help minimize risks. If you believe that you may have been exposed to the virus, it is recommended that you call your local health department immediately to ask for appropriate guidance prior to visiting any health care facility. This will help limit your exposure to others.
To help keep our office and patients safe, MDG has also posted signage in our entryways that asks those with possible illness or exposure to coronavirus to immediately alert our office upon arrival. We are happy to reappoint patients to minimize the risks to others.
Tip to Stay Healthy
Routine preventative actions are critical to help prevent the spread of respiratory illness, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
- Stay at home if you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or inner arm
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaner
- Washing your hands with soap and water at regular intervals throughout the day
- Using an alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available
To ensure you have the most up-to-date information, we recommend visiting the CDC’s Coronavirus homepage and the World Health Organization website. We consider it a privilege to care for our patients. We remain ready to provide you with the great dental care you deserve. Thank you for your continued trust in Morgantown Dental Group.
