Dr. Robin Steely Demonstrates COVID-19 Safety Protocols
WE ARE OPEN!
Robin P Steely, DDS is and has always been dedicated to the health and safety of our patients, team and community for over 38 years. It is our number one priority. I put together this little video that shows you some of the new protocols going forward to help give you peace of mind in knowing it is safe to come to our practice for your dental services.
Please watch this video and let us know if you have any questions.
5/19/21: Dear Patients,
Last week, the CDC relaxed the guidelines for mask usage for people that have been vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a first step in our world getting back to “normal.” Our office is following the MDA (Michigan Dental Association) guidance that comes from the Michigan Department of Occupational Heath Administration (MIOSHA) and the CDC. Mask use is still required for all healthcare settings, which includes our office. This guidance is in place until at least October 2021.
Our office has spent the past year treating our patients with dignity, respect, and safety. We continue to update our daily activities as guidance is issued. In helping to keep everyone safe, we ask that you continue to wear a mask when visiting our office and we will continue to do the same. Rest assured that your health and safety is at the forefront of our treatment protocols every day. Thank you so much for your trust in us. We will do our best to keep you apprised of any new guidelines as they are released.
Robin P. Steely, DDS & Team
To Our Family of Patients
To say that the past few months has been challenging is an understatement! We are so grateful that so many of you have stayed healthy and well throughout the pandemic season. Being almost a year into this “new normal” has made us reflect on the goodness and grace of the people that we serve.
We have worked through all of you that had appointments confirmed during our 3 month shut-down. You allowed us a “soft start” when we returned and that made all the difference in our working through all of the new safety protocols that were put in place.
We continue to stay focused on our purpose of transforming lives with great oral fitness and health. The tenants of our practice are and will always be:
Gum tissue free of any bleeding, inflammation, or infection
Teeth free from any decay, cracks, or gaps
A comfortable bite without wear on the teeth and no gaps between them
An open airway to allow you to breath well
We continue to review new techniques and materials, looking for better ways to serve you. Updating our rigorous infection control protocols have everyone’s safety in mind. As an example, our hygiene visits are now 75 minutes, allowing the appropriate time to thoroughly clean and disinfect our treatment areas. The reason that we all come to the practice every day is to find a better way for you to achieve the level of health that you choose.
Thanks so much for all the encouraging messages that we have received. It has meant a lot to know that so many of you are doing well. Also, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all of the participation that you have done in the past to take control of your health. That is the greatest compliment that you could pay us. Again, we are excited to be back and partner with you for a healthy future! Looking forward to the years to come.
Sincerely, Robin Steely, DDS, Kenta, Michelle, Amber, Erin and Adell
