Going to the Dentist During COVID-19: What’s Different?

Going to the dentist during COVID-19 will be very different from what we are used to. More importantly, at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry, our biggest concern is the safety of our patients and team. Because of this, we have dedicated time and effort to ensure that we have all of the necessary precautions in place to see patients. The situation is constantly changing. As of now, here are some of the guidelines that we are following:

  • Upholding high sterilization standards, as always
  • Using UV sanitizers to help clean more effectively
  • We are asking everybody to wear a mask and wash hands upon entry where we will check temperatures
  • Parents will fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire before visits
  • Our office is very large so we can practice social distancing easily
  • We have sanitizers throughout the office
  • One-way traffic for patients/parents to come in and leave through different exits
  • Paperless forms that can be completed on tablet that will be cleaned after every use
  • Daily temperature checks and health history reviews for our employees
  • Our uniforms have always been laundered on-site, which is now required
  • All employees will wear the necessary protective gear

Great Grins: Going to the Dentist During COVID-19

We are following these guidelines and other recommendations (from the ADA and other organizations) closely. This way, we can still see patients at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry. We will make necessary changes as the situation develops. Please call us if you have any questions.

Your child’s dental visit will look different, especially to little ones. Before the visit, try to talk to your child about possible changes. Explain that the dental team may look different, but it is for their protection. It can still be a fun trip to the dentist!

If your child is having a true dental emergency, contact Great Grins Children’s Dentistry at (520)325-4746. Please remember to stay safe and stay home if you are sick. We are in this together. We look forward to seeing you soon.
