We want to make it clear that we are in it together and we always have been. For the past twenty years Cal Dental Group has successfully protected our team members, patients, and communities through natural disasters, pandemics (and the spread of infectious diseases like Ebola), and other states of emergency. We are in close contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other relevant regulatory agencies, and healthcare organization administrators to ensure we deploy the most current and safe protocols to keep You, our patient, safe.
Cal Dental Group Statement On COVID-19
Like you, we are monitoring the latest news for the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As health care providers, we adhere to strict universal precautions. Sterilization is at the core of every sound dental practice. No doubt, when you arrive at the office, you will notice it is clean from top to bottom. It is our commitment to adhere to the strict guidelines set out by the American Dental Association (ADA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), that guide our every move when it comes to protecting each patient.
It is important to remember that handling and containing the spread of a serious contagion like the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is primarily a task for public health agencies. Cal Dental Group is following all directives from the CDC, ADA and local governmental organizations.
Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking families who returned from travel to areas with reported cases of Coronavirus, to consider self-imposing a 14-day quarantine and schedule a dental treatment after that time period.
Any patients, who are experiencing acute respiratory illness, including symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please remain home and reschedule any appointments you have with us until the illness has passed.
The most effective way to stay healthy and minimize the spread of any infectious disease is to follow essential health best practices, such as:
- Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands.
- If you become sick or exhibit a fever, please contact your health care provider and limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.
Be assured that your health and safety are our number one priorities every day!
If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call. Your health and safety are important to the entire staff at Cal Dental Group.
We will be in touch with any updates and wish you all the very best.
With care and respect,
Dr. Olga Karnokova
