by Dr Barrett Straub & Dr Anne Heinrich

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming some semblance of normalcy. We are happy to inform you that our practice will be opening for elective dental care starting March 18, 2020. We are excited to see you and want to assure you that while much has changed in our world, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We have spent the previous weeks researching and studying the latest infection control studies and guidelines from the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We are confident that we have not only met the new infection control standard of care in addressing COVID, but surpassed the level that is expected. Our promise to you is that we are here to provide dentistry safely. In addition, you will not see any infection control fees or other efforts of passing the additional costs on to you. Safe dentistry is our responsibility and our promise to you.

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

• You will be screened for COVID exposure upon entering our office and your temperature will be taken and recorded.

• You will be encouraged not to arrive more than 5 minutes early.

• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area, as well as other places in the office, for you to use as needed.

• According to CDC guidelines, all patients will be required to wear a mask while in the office. If you do not have your own, we will provide you with a mask.

• We have used heavy weight plastic to isolate two operatories and all procedures producing aerosols will be completed in these isolated operatories.

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

• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

• 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 have implemented an online payment option, to reduce the social distance challenges of multiple people being checked out simultaneously.

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. Please call our office at 262-284-5505, or visit our website at straubdentistry.com, with any questions. We value your trust and loyalty, and look forward to welcoming back all our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Sincerely,

Dr. Barrett D. Straub, DDS. Dr. Anne Heinrich, DMD
