Everyone’s life has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and even simple things like a visit to the dentist may seem daunting. That is until you realize how crucial our patients’ health and safety has been and continues to be at Carousel Pediatric Dentistry.
Our COVID-19 Safety Precautions
We welcome you to call us if you have any questions about our COVID precautions. To put your concerns to rest, here are the steps we take every day to ensure our patients’ safety at our dental offices in Apple Valley, MN:
Patient Screening: We ask all patients and accompanying adults COVID screening questions one to two days before the appointment. A clinical staff member verifies the answers upon arrival, and we use a contactless thermometer to check the temperature of everyone who enters our office.
Employee Screening: On a daily basis, we screen every team member for COVID-19 symptoms and check temperatures upon arrival at our dental office.
“Virtual” Waiting Room: To minimize foot traffic contact between patients at our dental office, we ask all patients to text or call or when they arrive and stay in their cars until we have an open treatment room.
Our Masking Policy: At Carousel Pediatric Dentistry, we require all patients over the age of three to wear a mask in our dental office up until the moment we begin treatment. All staff members will be wearing masks, and if you arrive without one, we will provide one for you.
Additional PPE: We require all clinical staff members to wear additional personal protective equipment (PPE), including face shields, surgical masks, safety shields, and gowns.
Meticulous Cleaning: We continue to adhere to the same stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocols of common spaces and treatment rooms that have always been in place for your safety.
Social Distancing: We have arranged our reception area to leave at least six feet between each patient, and all our team members practice social distancing when at all possible.
Protective Plexiglass Barriers: We have installed clear plexiglass barriers for additional safety and protection for patients and staff members.
Teledentistry: If you have questions or concerns about dental care, we may be able to save you a trip to our dental office with teledentistry. To schedule a virtual consultation with one of our dentists, please call Carousel Pediatric Dentistry.
