We hope this page finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over

the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While

many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.



Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your

visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe

and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice

to keep patients and staff safe.



Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA),

the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health

Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.



You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help

protect our patients and staff. For example:


  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.  We may or may not take your temperature with a "no touch" infared thermometer.

  • We prefer you wait in your car intill we notify you to come on in.

  • Once inside, we have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.

  • You will notice that we have an acrylic "sneeze guard" in place at the front desk

  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

  • We have invested in multiple UVC lights to help disinfect hard to clean items like paperwork

  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

  • We have invested in ways to reduce aerosols and also will be wearing additional PPE as the situation dictates.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the

steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call

our office at 517-347-0034.


Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our

patients, neighbors and friends.
