We hope all of our friends, patients, and their families are safe and well. We certainly missed all of our patients during the Covid-19 shutdown and we are so happy to see their smiling faces again (behind their masks)!
Although the mandated shutdown kept most people at home these past number of weeks, Dr. Thoman and his staff were always available to see patients for emergencies. We also used this time for continuing education and review (remotely, of course) so that we may continue to incorporate the latest advancements and technologies to the surgical care we provide to our patients. These areas of education included Infection Control, Anesthesia, Pain Management, OSHA, Dental Implants and Complications, Bone Grafting, Skeletal Growth Development and Airway, Pathology, and Effects of Vaping on the Dental Patient, Leadership and Team Engagement.
In addition, many hours were spent procuring the necessary additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) per CDC guidelines that we would need to keep our patients and staff safe once our office re-opened. As you could imagine, that was no small task! Our patients can be confident that infection control and strict PPE protocols in our office are being used at all times and that the safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority.
We missed our patients… We missed each other… We are so very glad to be back!
