"Dr. Ronald G. Worth strives to surpass his patient's expectations of treatment through quality and excellence of care. Along with all the general dental services that you and your entire family require, we offer the most popular cosmetic dental procedures that you have been searching for such as dental implants, porcelain veneers, Zoom teeth whitening and full smile makeovers."
We hope this letter 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 our 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 will 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 and we will take your temperature with an infrared touch-less thermometer.
*You may be asked to call us from your car when you arrive in our parking lot and advised as to when to enter the office building.
*We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the building. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you as needed.
*You will need to wear a facial mask covering your mouth and nose in order to enter into the office building.
*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.
*Our office has been modified and equipped with multiple UV/HEPA filters, touch-less soap dispensers and water faucets,
*Our HVAC system has been equipped with UV air scrubbers, state of the art electronic filters as well as the optimization of the air flow throughout the office.
*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 will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any time.
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 starting Monday, June 8, 2020 at 914-737-5421.
Thank you for being our dental patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Ronald G. Worth, DDS, and his wonderful staff
