At Bay Area Dental, we are dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. Therefore, we have taken certain infection control measures to make your visits to our office as safe as possible.
We strictly follow the guidelines provided by the ADA, CDC, and OSHA as part of the infection control procedures. In addition, we stay up-to-date on any new guidance provided by these agencies.
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, cough, or others, then keep track of them and prevent them from spreading by taking these steps:
- Stay home. (We will reschedule your appointment.)
- Take good care of yourself by staying hydrated and taking over-the-counter medicines on time.
- Keep in touch with your doctor.
- Do not use public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- Stay away from other people and pets in your home.
Call 911; if you experience any emergency warning signs like trouble breathing, feeling pale, unable to walk, etc.
