NICD's Statement concerning the Coronavirus

At this time, we have decided to continue seeing patients as usual, but we’d like to address the concerns you might have surrounding the Coronavirus and our office practices.

First and foremost, for the protection of all of our patients and staff, we request that you please reschedule your appointment if you:

  • are not feeling well;
  • have a fever over 99.6. Please note that all patients and visitors will be asked to have a temple thermometer or infrared temperature reading taken upon entering the office;
  • have symptoms of the virus which include cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, headache, nausea or diarrhea;
  • have traveled to the U.S. from another country since March 9th;
  • think you may have been exposed to the coronavirus through close contact with a person who is ill, whether they have been tested or not.

We also ask that you limit the number of people you bring with you to your dental appointment at this time.

Our office has always been committed to the health and safety of our patients, staff and community. Be assured that it has always been our standard procedure to sterilize each piece of equipment immediately before and/or after each use to insure the health of our patients. As always, we will continue to practice good hygiene by washing our hands frequently with anti-bacterial soap and using hand sanitizer.

While cleanliness has always been a top priority of our practice, due to the information gathered concerning the Coronavirus and its disease process COVID-19, we are taking extra measures. They include:

  • increasing the frequency of cleaning and sterilization of ‘high touch’ areas, such as our reception chairs, desk and tables, as well as our restroom;
  • monitoring the spacing of patients to keep everyone at a healthy distance;
  • instructing our staff to stay home if they are not feeling well.

Please know that we are actively monitoring both local and national information about COVID-19 and are continuing to do everything we can to keep our practice a clean and safe environment for you and your family. Thank you for your confidence.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michael Sesemann & Dr. Christina Pruitt
