First and foremost, if we’re open it is because we feel it’s safe for you to come in. So here are five important things to keep in mind as we approach the upcoming school year.
- Your oral health is representative of your overall systemic health. Now isn’t a time for compromise as it impacts your long-term health. Dr. Razdolsky routinely places appliances such as springs, coils and memory wires that apply continuous force to the teeth and jaws. For this reason, it is important for us to physically monitor your progress regularly to make necessary adjustments.
What’s more, leaving misaligned teeth untreated may lead to other dental problems. To help avoid tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wearing of tooth enamel and difficulty chewing, it is important to keep up with regularly scheduled appointments.
- Your Forever Smiles team is taking more precautions than ever to ensure your safety and that of our fellow team members.
In addition to wearing the proper PPE, practicing physical distancing, cleaning and disinfecting more than ever before, we are also asking screening and triage questions, as well as checking temperatures.
- Forever Smiles’ #1 priority is our patients’ health. If we are open, it is because we feel it’s safe for you to come in.
Our mission is to keep everyone safe, patients and team members, while continuing to provide quality orthodontic care. If we are open, rest assured that we have infection control precautions and changes in place that are designed for your protection and that of our team members.
- Dentists and orthodontic specialists like Dr. Razdolsky have always been leaders in infection control and preventing the spread of diseases.
As oral health professionals, we must stay at the forefront in safely practicing with blood borne pathogens and respiratory pathogens. We are taking all the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and implementing them in our offices.
- As oral health professionals, your Forever Smiles team always stays on top of the latest safety protocols.
Through our participation in continuing education programs we educate ourselves on the latest safety and infection control protocols to ensure they align with the CDC and any other state and local guidelines. After all, our number one priority is to deliver orthodontic care in a safe environment for all our patients and their families.
