Important COVID-19 Update Spring/Summer 2021
All staff at J & D Dental are fully vaccinated against COVID-19! We could not be more excited to continue to safely treat our patients.
In compliance with most recent guidelines set by Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), masks are still required in healthcare settings. Our clinic will continue to require masks be worn at all times while in the office unless actively receiving treatment. We ask all patients arrive to the clinic wearing their own masks. All staff members will also continue to wear masks at all times.
Arriving to Your Appointment:
When you arrive, please ring our doorbell as our doors will be locked. A staff member will greet you at the door and verify you do not display any signs/symptoms of illness. In the event our screening identifies any signs/symptoms of illness, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for a later date. We will also require our patients to use our hand sanitizer when entering our office.
We are still following strict infection control protocols to ensure the continued safety and comfort of all patients and staff. As always, all treatment rooms will be completely sanitized via a two-step disinfecting process. Any items that cannot be wiped down will be disposed of or put through our autoclave sterilization unit.
We are still:
Screening patients upon arrival, practicing social distancing, wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE), and using medical grade HEPA air purifiers in the lobby and all treatment rooms.
With all the PPE standards set by the CDC and MDH, we have seen a significant increase in cost of these supplies. We have added a PPE surcharge of $10 to all appointments. Keeping your financial situation in mind, we are only charging a fraction of increased costs. We will continue to look into reducing the surcharges as demand changes. We also realize many of you have been financially impacted during this time and we are offering some solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family. To discuss these options, schedule an appointment, or ask any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact us at (612)-332-0592.
WELCOME BACK, Minneapolis! We look forward to seeing you soon!
