Happy May from Discovery Dental! We are pleased to announce that our office will open again on May 19th.
The optimal care of our patients is our top priority and it is our goal to maintain necessary hygiene care and address necessary treatment in a safe and timely manner. Discovery Dental is aware of and will be following all required safety measures while we strive to reschedule and treat our community. We urge you to please cancel your appointment if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms: chills, repeated shaking with chills, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and/or difficulty breathing.
Once we reopen again, our team will follow safety guidelines to ensure the health of both our team and our patients. All staff and providers will be wearing masks in the office. The seats in our waiting area have been removed to allow for space and appropriate social distancing. Hand sanitizer is available for patients, along with reduced touch-points in the office and scheduled sanitization of high traffic areas and surfaces.
Living through such an unprecedented time can be challenging, so it’s important to take time to practice self-care and find ways to manage stress that work for you. Some of the ways the team of Discovery Dental manage stress and relax are taking time to think, breathe, and plan ahead. Keeping active by going outside for a walk can be helpful. You can also implement a daily exercise routine or meditate when you need to calm down and focus. Make sure you are eating healthy foods that nourish your body and make you feel good. Make a list of things that need to get done and then prioritize those tasks. Talk to someone you trust. Read something uplifting.
Even though the team has missed being at the office, the time spent with our families has been a gift. There has been more time to talk and laugh and enjoy one another with no meetings to go to and fewer outside distractions. Though we can’t wait to get back to some sort of normalcy and do things like go out to restaurants or see a movie.
We hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy! We can’t wait to see all our wonderful patients again soon.
