Our Dear Current and Future Patients, We are open as of May 5th!
We will no longer use reception area to seat our patients awaiting treatment. Instead, we will be asking you to call us when you arrive, and we will then call or text you when we are completely prepared for you.
You will be questioned about your health and recent travels before coming into our office.
You will be greeted at the door by one of our caregivers and offered a mask to wear if you do not already have one, and then escorted to a hygiene or treatment room.
Once seated you will be given a rinse of Oracare, which is the only proven anti-viral mouth rinse, to swish for one minute.
We are structuring our systems so that your next appointment and your payment can be handled in the treatment room.
Once treatment and clerical necessities are complete, you will be escorted to the exit with your face mask on.
Another thing you will notice, everybody working in our office is wearing a mask. We will work diligently to communicate with our eyes, yet we will greatly miss giving and getting smiles.
All of these things are being done to ensure your safety while you in our care. Although these rules are rigid, and yet necessary, it will not change our love or devotion for you, our patient! I am quite sure that these changes will remain in place until we can test every patient coming into the office for COVID-19 or there is a vaccine developed to give us all immunity to this virus. Most of all, what you need to know that you will be safe and well cared for here at Boise Dentistry Co.
Additional information regarding COVID-19
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is central to responding to this threat and a good source of information. More information regarding how to protect yourself can be found on their website. The CDC provides dentists with a list of Standard Precautions, which we have followed for years and will always continue to follow. Their guidelines are instrumental in keeping our patients and staff safe as well as preventing the spread of any infection. Additional resources:
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions. Be assured your health and safety will continue to be our top priority as this situation develops!
Sincerely, Dr. Minert and Team
