Everyone is concerned about the spread of COVID-19, otherwise known as the Coronavirus. I too am on a heightened level of concern and I and my staff are taking every precaution possible to minimize its spread and assure that everyone who enters our doors is safe.
Our office has been practicing a high level of infection control for decades. We just have not made it common knowledge amongst our patients. We just do it as a matter of course, to assure that we keep a safe environment for you, your family, my staff and myself.
Ever since the AIDS crisis in the 1980’s we have rigorously followed all infection control guideline. In fact as part of our licensure, we have to regularly renew our knowledge of these guidelines.
In light of the current situations we are redoubling our efforts, which we will happily discuss with you if you have any questions concerning our disinfecting protocol.
We ask however that you and your family be cautious and do not come to the office if you have a fever, cough or other flu-like symptoms, please call our office to reschedule.
Our hearts go out to anyone whom may have been affected by the CoronaVirus. I and my staff will always welcome you and your family and know that you will always be safe and cared for. Thank you for your continued trust and confidence and your cooperative effort towards maintaining health and well-being.
Preston L. West, D.D.S
