Dear Friends and Patients of Vast Dental,
Vast Dental is Open and ready to serve our community. During these unprecedented times, we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and visitors. From the beginning of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, we’ve been complying to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other agencies to stay up to date with the latest information.
We have always put the sanitation and infection control as a first priority, even before COVID-19. In fact, we have always been utilizing disinfection techniques that have recently become popular.
In addition to our standard enhanced protocol, we have made some changes to further contain any infection.
New Protocol for patients arriving:
– Please call the office as you arrive to the office. The office number is 617-658-7883. We will let the staff know that you have arrived. Once we have fully sterilized and prepared your room for your appointment, we will call you back to invite you in. You also have the option to sit and wait in our waiting room which is constantly sterilized and position for social distancing.
– The front desk is now equipped with barriers between you and the staff.
– Once enter the office, we will provide you with hand sanitizer. Next, we will measure your oxygen level. Depending on your oxygen level, we will take your temperature. Oxygen levels have proven to be a more accurate, and earlier detection of COVID-19.
– After registering at the front desk, you will go directly to your sterilized room.
– The medical staff is fully equipped with PPE. All medical staff at Vast Dental is now required to wear new sterilized gowns and cap for each patient. During the procedure, medical staff will wear a face shield to isolate each patient, and prevent any airborne infections. All medical staff will wear double mask when working in close proximity.
We understand these new changes will have challenges, but we are prepared and excited to welcome our friends and family of Vast Dental back. Welcome back!
