To Our Valued 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.
As of April 3, 2023, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), has lifted the requirement for mask wearing in health care facilities. This applies to patients and staff. However, OSHA still requires all dental providers to wear masks while providing direct patient care. This ruling has been in effect for over 40 years and will not be changing. Patients may of course choose to wear a mask into our offices. If you have any questions please feel free to ask any of our staff members.
