With the recent concerns of the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus, we at Michels & Gauquie Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, wanted to update our patients on the measures we're taking to reduce possible exposure.
Rest assured that we ALWAYS employ the highest standards of disinfection and sterilization to protect our patients from any potential contamination or infection. These regular procedures have been supplemented in recent days due to added concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus. In addition to our usual procedures, we have increased the frequency of cleaning duties to disinfect shared surfaces in the waiting room and around the office such as counters, doorknobs, and seating areas. Staff have removed magazines and books from the waiting room. We are requesting patients use hand sanitizer the moment they enter the office. We are screening patients as they make appointments to try to identify high-risk individuals and carriers before entering our office. At Michels & Gauquie, we want our patients to feel confident that their safety is our #1 concern and that we are taking reasonable measure to make this office one of the LEAST likely places to be exposed to this new threat.
