Committed to Patient Safety!
Throughout COVID, one thing remains the same: our commitment to your health and the overall safety of our entire community. If you’re uncertain about seeing a dentist, knowing more about what we’re doing to keep you safe and comfortable can help you make informed decisions.
As always, our mission at Dexter Family Dentistry is to provide exceptional dental care for the whole family. State-of-the-art infection control has always been a top priority at our practice and keeping up with current safety standards is even more important now. To put your mind at ease during the coronavirus pandemic, our dentists want to share some of the new procedures we now follow to keep patients and staff safe.
We strive to provide a safe, comfortable environment where you can feel at home during these uncertain times. Our office stays abreast of the latest infection control recommendations by the CDC, OSHA, OSAP, our local health department, the American Dental Association, and the Michigan Dental Association. We want to make sure our dentists and staff adhere to or exceed each agency’s recommendations.
Feel free to wear a mask and practice social distancing by staying 6 feet away from others when possible. A face mask will be provided at no charge if you would like one. Someone from our team will greet you, and you may be asked general health screening questions. Staff undergo daily health screenings to protect the safety of our patients and community.
Patients should enter through the main entrance (the glass doors under the big blue awning on the western side of the building). The exit is separate and is on the northern side of the building, through the single glass door facing Dan Hoey Road.
All our office staff wear masks in clinical areas, and dentists and other clinical staff will wear additional PPE, such as N-95 respirators, face shields, safety glasses, head covers, and surgical gowns.
Improved patient suction systems have been installed and our building has increased the frequency and quality of HVAC air filtration. You may want to bring a sweater or light jacket as you can expect cooler office temperatures.
To enhance safety and accommodate changes in our PPE and disinfection protocols, we’ve changed our scheduling system. These changes have been put in place to optimize patient and staff safety and minimize in-office wait times. Thank you for your patience.
Even though it may be hard to see our smiling faces under our PPE, we assure you it’s still us! We’re excited to see you and ensure your safety in our dental health care environment. We will gladly answer any questions you may have. To make an appointment, please text or call 734-426-9000 or contact us online. Thank you for trusting Dexter Family Dentistry with your dental care. We’re grateful for your loyalty and trust and look forward to seeing you at your next appointment! Stay well!
