Coronavirus (COVID-19) Office Update

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Office Update
Posted on 05/22/2020

Dear Patients and Parents of Jarosz & Valente Orthodontics,

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

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and will continue to be meticulously implemented so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agency’s recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We have made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • We are initially seeing all of our Arlington Heights and Deerfield patients in the Arlington Heights location. This is due to the modifications we were able to make in this location to allow for social distancing as well as allowing parents to remain in the car while our staff is able to walk patients from the car one at a time into the treatment area.
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some Health Screening Questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are at the office and will also be asked to sign a Consent to Treatment Form. We will be taking the temperature of everyone entering the office including all staff and doctors.
  • We are requesting that parents and siblings remain in the car. If this is not possible, then we will allow one parent/guardian to accompany the patient and they will also be screened.
  • All patients and guests entering the office must be wearing a mask.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask our patients and guests to use when entering and exiting the office.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the clinic area at any one time.

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

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

Sincerely,
Drs. Jarosz & Valente
