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.

COVID-19: Coronavirus Information From Great Grins

As most of you know, our office made the difficult decision to close starting March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was based on recommendations by the American Dental Association (ADA) in conjunction with the executive order issued by Governor Doug Ducey that disallows “all non-essential or elective surgeries” as well as other important factors. We are monitoring this fluid situation and will send out emails and postings as to when we will return, but for now we will be closed through the month of April, 2020.

Dental Emergencies

If you are a patient of record and are having a true dental emergency, please call our office at (520)325-4746 and you will be directed as to how to reach the doctors.

Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus

There are some simple steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and our community. Please refer to the CDC website for the most up-to-date recommendations. Remember to:

• Stay home and practice social distancing
• Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue or the inside of your elbow
• Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds
• Disinfect frequently touched items/surfaces regularly
• Wear a cloth face cover if you are around a lot of people

The safety of our patients, families, and team members are the utmost importance to us. We can’t wait to see all of our patients again but their well-being is our priority and therefore, we will follow the necessary precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please stay safe and remember to sport a winning smile, even through these unprecedented times. We hope to see you all soon.

Sincerely,

Drs. Wolfman and Lele and the Great Grins Team
