Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Associated Dentists Dedication and
Service to Infection Control
Associated Dentists have always taken the needs and safety of our patients very seriously. Our office has been a member of the Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention (OSAP) for over 25 years. OSAP is the leading international organization when it comes to infection control and safety in dentistry.
Our Infection Control Mission:
We want to assure the safe and infection-free delivery of oral health-care to all of our patients.
Patient & Provider Safety
We believe that all patients deserve access to oral healthcare that is delivered safely and the persons who are involved in delivering such care are protected from occupational injury or illness.
We value lessons learned from the application of scientific principles. We believe the work we do should be grounded in data, research and rigorous evaluation. When appropriate, we also welcome expert consensus to help inform the development of practical guidance.
While operating in this time of COVID – 19, we have prepared a full written plan for procedures that utilize PPE and provide a safe environment for employees and safely serve our patients. We can provide our full written plan upon request.
***Please Read – Changes To Appointments***
