COVID & Changes in Our Office to Keep You Safe

You may have concerns for your safety and the safety of others when going to the dentist or going anywhere for that matter during this crazy COVID 19 Pandemic.  Our office is taking several new precautions to keep you and our team safe during this time.  Please see the video below to see firsthand some of the changes we are implementing.

Our office monitors the guidelines recommended by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Occupational Safety and health Administration (OSHA), the American Dental Association (ADA), and Colorado Dental Association (CDA) for the best guidelines and recommendations during this time.  Based on the Governor’s Safer at Home Executive Order we are now seeing all of our dental patients with enhanced precautions.  While many things have changed, one thing at our office has remained the same:  our constant commitment to your safety.  We want you to be safe while you are in our office and we want to keep our team members and doctor safe as well!  Everyone should know by now that you can be a carrier of the Covid virus even if you do not have any symptoms!

That being said, the CDC recommends that you ‘Watch for symptoms!’
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Practice Social Distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits to help slow the spread of #COVID19.

So what’s different?

We look forward to seeing you again!  Please call our office if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment.  We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you and every patient safe in our practice.  You can learn more about our office on our website at www.juliegillisdds.com.

Yours for better dental health and safety,

Julie M. Gillis, DDS
