To all our patients,
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 office follows the most up-to-date infection control recommendations by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
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:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office and your temperature will be taken.
  • We will ask you to wait in your car and text us from the parking lot to let us know that you have arrived.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some throughout the office for you to use as needed.
  • Based on the recommendation of the NH Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), we will be requiring all persons entering our office to be masked with a washable, re-usable cloth face covering at a minimum to help prevent pre-symptomatic transmission within our facility.
  • Do not be surprised to find our providers garbed in personal protective equipment (PPE) as recommended by the ADA, CDC, and OSHA throughout your appointment. This PPE may look slightly different from what you are used to normally seeing in our office. The addition of new PPE is designed to keep both our patients and our staff safe during this difficult time.
  • 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.
    Drs. Leighton, Pereira, and Staff
