To our patients,

 

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we look forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.  While many things have changed, one things has remained the same:  our commitment to our community and your safety.

 

At Kennedy Dental, infection control has always been a top priority.  Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. 

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

 

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

  • All patients will be screened for fever and temperature before all appointments.

  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.  We may ask you to wait in your car until we are ready to seat you for your procedure.

  • You may be asked to rinse with a special medicated rinse prior to your procedure.

  • We've added additional medical grade HEPA H13 filters to our treatment rooms and other areas of our office.

  • For any procedure that generates aerosols (water spray), we will be using a specialized intra-oral high-volume suction device.  This significantly reduces the amount of water spray that leaves the mouth.

  • All of our administrative staff will be wearing face masks, we would kindly request that you bring one, and wear one before arrival as well, if you can.

  • All of our clinical staff will be wearing N95 masks in addition to level 3 masks.

  • All of our staff will have their temperatures checked every morning before seeing patients.

We look forward to seeing you again 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 or text our office at (941)351-9900.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Sincerely,

Dr. Aaron Kennedy
