Welcome to Our Practice
May 26, 2020
This year, Memorial Day also seemed to acknowledge a different type of hero, didn’t it? It has been and continues to be a new war that we are fighting. I am filled with gratitude for all of those who have acted in this fight against Covid-19 and continue to be thankful to all our men and women who have fought to keep our country safe during wartime. I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and the unexpected sunshine!
As I’m sure you’re aware, Governor Whitmer lifted the restrictions for dentistry beginning next Friday. The office will be open beginning June 1, and as we begin our new model, the pace will be slower as we adjust to all of the changes that both you and we will be making. My goal is to focus our efforts into phasing in more numbers of patients safely, and I appreciate your continued patience as we move forward.
I hope to have a video available soon that will highlight some of the changes you will see when you come in for your appointments. I also have a summary of the “RRWatts, DDS Covid-19 Preparedness and Response Plan”. If you would like to look at this document, it is posted on the website. It is an overview, and should you like more specific information, please contact the office. There is an excellent resource from the American Dental Association (ADA) that you may want to look at. The website is called Mouth Healthy (www.mouthhealthy.org) where you’ll find an article entitled, “Covid-19: What to Expect When Your Dentist’s Office Reopens”. There are many pieces of good information at this website.
One additional change that we are making since we last wrote an update is a new technology for hygiene (dental cleaning) patients. You will be dismissed without stopping by the front desk and will receive a text with your next appointment and a link to pay your co-pay on the website. If the appointment does not work for your schedule, please contact the office. I am appreciative of your understanding in our many attempts to diminish contact within the office during this transitional time.
If you have a scheduled appointment but are not yet ready to come into the office, please give us a call so that we can reschedule you for when you are feeling more comfortable. Keep in mind that your safety and comfort is our priority.
Wishing you the best, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back to the office.
Robert R. Watts, DDS
