Your Safety is Our Priority

We are committing to do whatever we can to keep you and your family safe during Covid-19

Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice. We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the ADA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We have updated our office protocol with any new guidelines from those organizations in the future. Our office is equipped with proper PPE, equipment, and protocol that will allow for the highest level of safety for all our patients and staff.

 

We are taking many steps to keep you safe. Below is a list of the additional safety measures and equipment for our office and individual operatories, as well as new requirements of patients at James Street Dental:
