Main Street Family Dentistry is closed until further notice, per order of the Governor's office and Vermont Department of Health. We will be available on a limited basis for emergency care. Please call Dr Coakley or Dr Burns at home if you have a dental emergency and are a patient of record. Phone numbers available on our office voicemail. Calls will be screened for true dental emergencies.
We want you to know that your health and safety come first. As health practitioners, we have always followed the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA). We continue to monitor their recommendations to be sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date. We implement hospital-level sterilization here at our practice.
When you visit our office, we may look a little different to keep everyone safe! We have increased our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). So, now when we treat you, we will be wearing a n95 mask, goggles or loupes, face shield, gloves, and a ASEP barrier lab coat. We will be asking you to keep us safe as well by making some changes below.
Changes you can expect to see at your next appointment:
Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions when you arrive. Any patients having fever, flu-like symptoms or contact with anyone infected with covid-19 will be rescheduled.
Your temperature may be taken with a touchless thermometer.
You will be given hand sanitizer or asked to wash your hands.
Once seated for your appointment, you will be asked to rinse your mouth with a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution with a minty aftertaste.
We are asking that patients wait in their vehicle until their appointment time to reduce the number of patients in the reception area.
We are also asking for only the patient to come into the office. If it is a minor, the parent may accompany them and will be screened, same as the patient.
What we are doing differently to protect you:
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
Reducing the number of patients seen and increasing the time between appointments will likely mean longer waiting times for appointments. We will do our best to get you scheduled as soon as possible.
You may notice that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and books, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
We will regularly use disinfectant to clean common areas.
We are updating our HVAC system to better filter aerosols both in the operatories and throughout the office with Air Scrubber Plus technology.
We look forward to seeing you again soon and are happy to answer any questions you may have about steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
