We hope this message finds you and your family in good health and spirits. Our country has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking for a return to normalcy. A lot has changed in our world, but Ballantyne Pediatric Dentistry’s commitment to safety remains of paramount importance.
Our practice has always been focused on infection control, and in addition to what we have always done, we are augmenting our protocols to exceed what is recommended by the American Dental Association® (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA).
Our response to COVID-19 is both comprehensive and meticulous:
During our time away from patient care, Dr. Scott and our team have worked diligently to enhance our facility and our procedures to provide the safe, exceptional care that your family has become accustomed to. Here are a few of the measures we have implemented:
Upgraded Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
The addition of N95/KN95 masks for clinical staff
We will be modifying our scheduling and minimizing the amount of people entering our office that are not receiving clinical care per CDC and ADA recommendations. Our goal is to maximize social distancing to the best of our ability in a pediatric dental practice. Please stay tuned via our website, www.ballantynepedo.com or our Facebook page for additional updates. We will be adding a link to our COVID-19 consent form on our homepage. The form needs to be read, signed, and returned prior to your child’s upcoming appointment to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to 704-831-6444.
Thank you for your trust and confidence in our practice. We miss seeing our wonderful patients and their families. Ballantyne Pediatric Dentistry is looking forward to making your child’s dental home a fun and positive experience once again.
Dr. Scott and the Ballantyne Pediatric Dentistry Team
