Since the COVID-19 Pandemic came to us in March of 2020 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), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Minnesota State OSHA and the Minnesota Board of Dentistry (MN BOD). 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 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 507-532-3353 or schedule online.
Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. Our office and staff are implementing every single requirement, suggestion, and option offered to ensure your safety as well as comfort. Thank you for being our patient(s) and trusting us with your dental care. We value your loyalty and look forward to welcoming our patients, neighbors, and friends.
