North Bridge Dental/R. Scott Collins DDS certify that conditions for resumption of elective and non-urgent medical procedures have been met prior to resuming operations.
The Dentist shall exercise his independent professional judgment in determining what procedures are appropriate to perform, which appointments should occur, and which patients to see in light of widespread COVID- 19 community transmission.
Social distancing requirements will be maintained in all settings where people must wait in order to minimize direct contact between individuals within the healthcare setting and use of non-traditional alternatives is encouraged (e.g., call ahead registration; waiting in a car until called).
All healthcare workers, patients, and others will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival for shift or visit. Staff must stay home if they are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
We are implementing enhanced workplace infection control measures in accordance with the most current CDC guidelines
All healthcare providers and staff will wear appropriate face coverings, to include cloth face coverings, surgical face masks or N-95 masks, respirators, and/or face shields.
Patients should wear a face covering whenever possible.
Facemasks will be removed and discarded if soiled, damaged, or hard to breathe through.
Finally, we will use common sense and care in reopening our practice.
