We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it's both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies' recommendations. You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
We have dedicated a page on our website to all the updates and changes we have made in our offices, for our employees and patients alike. Our Ask the Dentist teledentistry tool is still available and FREE of charge on our website. To visit our dedicated COVID-19 page on our website please click here.
Over the past 6 weeks, I have personally fielded many calls from upset patients for a variety of reasons. I understood every complaint. I accepted and understood your anger and frustration. But my hands, and the hands of the dentists that work at Hudec Dental, were tied. The mandate from the Governor and that of the State Dental Board defined emergencies and what we could see and what we could not see. So, let me apologize to each of you. I can only hope as we transition back to full time, that we again earn your trust by our actions and care. Feel free to contact me at any time if we fail in that mission.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
To make an appointment, please call our office at 216-325-9755 or visit our website.
Dr. John A. Hudec
Thank you to all of the everyday heroes continuing to serve us though these challenging times.
