We hope this finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last three months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.  While many things have changed, one thing at Okemos Family Dentistry has remained the same: our constant commitment to your safety. 

As you have seen during your visits to our office, infection control has always been a top priority for our practice.  Our strict processes have made the care you receive at Okemos Family Dentistry both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  We continue to monitor the recommendations of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

When it is time for your next appointment, you will see changes along our already strict infection control protocols.  For example; our office will communicate with you ahead of your appointment to ask some screening questions. This is MANDATORY and must be completed at least 24 hours before your appointment.  *Failure to complete this mandatory screening can result in your appointment being rescheduled.

We ask that you when you arrive for you appointment you call our office at 517-349-6669 to check in. At that time we will give instructions to enter the office.

Due to the extra personal protective gear our providers will be wearing, our office temperature is cooler than usual.  Please bring a jacket.

Non-contact temperatures will be recorded before entering the office.

When entering the office, we will ask you to use hand sanitizer which we will supply.  You will also find hand sanitizer in the reception area and the check-out station.  

Everyone who enters the dental office will be required to wear a face covering at all times, until treatment begins.

Our waiting room will have very limited seating, so we ask for additional family members to wait outside or in your car.

Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients.  That might mean that you’re offered slightly limited options for scheduling your appointment. We will do our best to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the office at any one time.

We hope these measures will be temporary and we will follow any changes and/or requirements from the ADA, CDC, and OSHA. 

If you have an upcoming appointment that was scheduled before the shut down, please note we may be calling you to adjust your time.  We have had to restructure our normal schedule times to allow for social distancing, and our new protocols.  

For patients that had an appointment(s) cancelled due to the shut down, we are doing our best to call and reschedule your appointment.  Please do not hesitate to call our office if you're in need of an appointment or have a dental emergency.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.  To make an appointment, please call 517-349-6669.

Thank you for being patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends in the safest way possible.
