East Center Dental is very happy to be welcoming back our patients. Your experience may be a bit different when you come in for your future appointment. At this time, we are taking every precaution to ensure your safety and the safety of our team.
Patient Protocol starting Monday, April 27:
Please reschedule your appointment if anyone in your household has a fever, cough, or other signs of illness.
Please do not arrive early for your appointment. Upon arrival, from your vehicle, call the office at 574-269-1787 and let us know you have arrived.
A member of our team will check you in and call you back to let you know when your treatment area is sterile and ready for you to be seen by the doctor.
Our reception area is closed to the public. Only the patient receiving treatment may come into the office for an appointment with the exception being one parent or helper, for patients needing assistance. All others must wait in their vehicles during the appointment in order to decrease traffic in our office.
Patients coming in for their dental appointments will be required to do the following upon arrival:
Wear a face covering or mask at all times (Except when receiving treatment)
At the door, we will take your temperature and have you use hand sanitizer
You will be escorted back to the operatory by a team member and we will have you rinse with mouthwash for 30 seconds and wash your hands for 20 seconds
Appointment times will be staggered, to minimize the number of patients in the office at one time, to practice social distancing.
Our team will be utilizing all necessary personal protection equipment, as recommended, for your safety.
We sincerely thank you for trusting us with your care! Please call our office with any questions!
