To our Gibberman Dental Family,
We hope this letter finds you and your families in good health. We are excited to announce that on Tuesday, May 26th, we will be reopening our office for routine patient care! Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we’re looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your overall health, safety, and well-being.
Infection control has always been a top priority at Gibberman Dental so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. Our office regularly 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) so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. In line with those recommendations, please note the following changes to our office protocols:
- To allow for better social distancing, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and call us from your car to announce your arrival at 703-746-8904. We will let you know when it is time to come up for your appointment. If possible, patients should come up by themselves. We love all members of our Gibberman Dental family, but for now we can only accommodate the patient receiving care that day.
- When you do come up, don’t forget your mask! We kindly ask you to wear a mask over your nose and mouth upon entering our building and continue to wear it until treatment has begun. If you do not have a mask, we will supply you with one. We also ask that you please use our hand sanitizer when you enter our office and before you exit the treatment area when your appointment is finished.
- When you enter Gibberman Dental, we will take your temperature with a no-contact thermometer. This has been a key tool in screening patients for COVID-19. There will also be a written screening and release form to fill out upon arrival.
- Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. This may also mean that we might run behind. We have always striven to be respectful of your schedule and time and will continue to do so. If you notice that things are taking longer at our office these days, please understand that it is to ensure your safety.
- For certain procedures, your dental team may look a little bit strange. Don’t worry, we are still the same team you know and trust even behind our new gowns, masks, and face shields. During this time, we are taking more precautions to keep both staff and patients safe.
- You may notice that we have temporarily removed magazines, pamphlets, and other difficult-to-disinfect items in our treatment and common areas.
- Lastly, please call our office to reschedule if you have any flu-like symptoms, fever, loss of smell or taste, cough, shortness of breath, have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or any of the above symptoms.
Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in the care you receive at Gibberman Dental. We look forward to seeing you soon 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 us at 703-823-6616 or email us at [email protected].
