Plaza Family Dentistry COVID-19 Statement (May 13, 2020)

We continue to closely monitor the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and are following the recommendations of The Center for Disease Control and American Dental Association.
 
Our doors remain OPEN for emergency appointments during the city wide shut down, so long as you are symptom free.  If you are experiencing a dental emergency during this time, please contact our office at 816-531-8000 to schedule an appointment.  We are scheduling emergencies, by appointment Monday through Thursday.  If you have a dental emergency after business hours please call our main number and follow the prompts to be connected to your dentist. 
 
Plaza Family Dentistry will be opening May 26, 2020.  Please call to make an appointment.  If you had an appointment during the shutdown we will be reaching out to you to reschedule that date.

Please be reassured that the health and well-being of our patients and employees continue to be our office’s top priority.  We have taken many steps to keep our office as safe as possible.  These include: 

  • We will contact you the day before your appointment to screen for any potential symptoms related to the Coronavirus
  • We will screen all patients when they arrive including filling out a screening form and taking your temperature.  Anyone with a temperature within the past 48 hrs. is not permitted in our office. This is for the safety of other patients. We will take your temperature at check in. 
  • We are also self-monitoring ourselves for symptoms, and checking our temperatures twice daily 
  • Limiting visitors. Please make every attempt to only bring the patient unless no other option exists.  Visitors will be asked to wait in their car. 
  • When you arrive please call and let us know you are here.  We will let you know when we are ready for you to enter the office.
  • It is recommended that you bring a mask or face covering to the appointment
  • When you arrive for your appointment we will take you directly to the operatory where we will ask you to wash your hands.
  • It is also recommended that patients swish with an anti-microbial mouth rinse prior to their appointment which we will provide for each patient.
  • We have removed all magazines and reading material from our waiting rooms and exam rooms.  
  • We are sanitizing all door handles and surfaces after each patient 
  • As always, our treatment rooms are disinfected after every patient. We have intensified our protocol for cleaning our treatment rooms, including disinfecting chairs, all hard surfaces, X-ray units, lights, light switches, keyboards, all dental equipment and arm rests after every visit. We will continue to adhere to CDC and OSHA guidelines. 
  • Having our clinical team wear added personal protective equipment for the safety of patients and staff. You may see us in added protection equipment including scrubs, disposable gowns, face shields, hair nets and surgical caps, and masks.  

We encourage you to contact the office if you are experiencing a dental emergency. Examples of emergency dental treatment include: 

  • Tooth pain 
  • Pain around or coming from your gums 
  • Swelling 
  • Broken or fractured teeth 
  • Trauma to your teeth or mouth 
  • Bleeding from your gums or around your teeth 
  • If you have a temporary crown on, please contact our office to schedule your next appointment
