One year ago, we were preparing to reopen our doors. It was really kind of scary. So many things were changing and so fast! Our awesome staff kept right up. Many of the changes meant more work, some longer hours, and some frustration with a seemingly constant state of flux with new and changing executive orders.

With everything opening up, we would like to let you know what has changed at the office.

BIGGEST QUESTION—MASKS—NOTHING HAS REALLY CHANGE

Because we are a health care facility, masks are still required of our staff at all times when patients are in the office. Masks are also required for anyone entering the building unless there are health issues or conditions that preclude their use. We do not know the immune condition of everyone entering the office, so we would like to protect those around us who may be vulnerable.

TEMPERATURE AND SYMPTOM CHECKS—NO CHANGE

We are required as a staff to continue to monitor symptoms and temperature test daily.

Our patients are still required to fill out a health questionnaire prior to coming in for treatment and we will continue to temperature check upon arrival.

WHILE YOU ARE AT THE OFFICE

We ask that you text us, as you have been, when you arrive so that we can have your spot ready for you. 920-325-3136. We will continue to send a reminder email and reminder text with the health questions prior to your appointment.

We will maintain hand washing and hand sanitizing for anyone entering the treatment area.

SOME FUN CHANGE

We have redecorated our reception area with furniture arranged to provide 6’ separation. We can accommodate 6 people at any given time. Text us if you’d like to come in, and we will let you know if there is space. If you don’t mind, we continue to recommend that family members remain in the car.

On a bright note, our coffee station is open, so if you’d like to grab a cup of coffee while you are at the office, feel free.

Finally, we are doing a monthly drawing for GREAT TOOTHBRUSHING. Please brush well. When we see exceptional tooth brushing, your name will be put into our drawing. We already have our first winner for the month of May. Congrats S. Taylor!

WE SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER UPDATE BY THE END OF JUNE. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED AS THINGS CHANGE.

Thanks for understanding and helping us through these changes!
