COVID-19 Information

05/04/2020
Dear Patients:
 
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 our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations.
 
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.  The screening will be repeated when you are arrive at the office, you will sign a consent for treatment and your temperature will be taken and recorded.
 
• 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 and other places in the office for you to use as needed. For this reason, we ask that you not wear gloves into the office.
 
• You will see that our waiting room will no longer be accessible for the time being and we’ll ask that you call the office at 402-721-2252 upon your arrival and wait in your vehicle until you are given instruction to enter the office. 
 
• We also ask you to not bring family members to the appointment except one parent or caretaker, per patient, if necessary.
 
• Appointments will be managed in attempt for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment until we are caught up.
 
• We will do our best to allow time between patients to reduce waiting times for you.
 
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 our office at 402-721-2252 or visit our website at www.fremontnedentist.com
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely,
Nye Avenue Dental Team
