Your health and well-being are important to Dr. Brenegan and the entire team at Cary Periodontics. With concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that infection control procedures are in place in our dental office.
Infection control procedures are actions taken in healthcare settings on a daily basis to prevent the spread of disease. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA) have made recommendations for dental office infection control to which we closely adhere. This includes but is not limited to cleaning and disinfecting the dental treatment rooms between patients; cleaning and sterilizing all instruments between patients; using disposable, single-use items when possible; and wearing appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, masks, gowns and eyewear when needed. Our team regularly cleans and sanitizes the waiting room, reception desk, and restroom. Dr. Brenegan and the entire team at Cary Periodontics care about your health and safety, and we work hard to prevent the spread of ANY infection.
What can you do to help us prevent the spread of infection?
- Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose to prevent the spread of germs.
- Cover your cough or sneeze into your elbow. Infections like the flu, common cold, and COVID-19 spread through tiny droplets in coughs and sneezes.
- Stay home if you feel sick. If you have flu-like symptoms or otherwise feel unwell, please stay home and rest. Call our office to reschedule your appointment to a later date.
If you are healthy, there is no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment. However if you are symptomatic or have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, please alert our office and we will reschedule your appointment.
