What Dr. Karla Bloomquist and the SoundBridge staff are doing for our patients to navigate through COVID-19:
Heading into summer, we look forward to seeing patients for all preventative, restorative needs. We want you to know that we take your health seriously and are doing everything we can to reassure you that moving forward with your dental care is the right thing to do. During these past couple of months, we have spent time learning about this virus and how it could potentially alter dental care. It is important to keep in mind that we as dentists are trained professionals and practice safety every day! Although COVID is a new virus, we are well versed in practicing universal precautions. Which means, everyone is protected from all potential infections. In general, this is nothing new for us! With the apprehension directed at COVID in particular, there are new precautions that we are taking to protect our patients:
So the answer is YES, indeed, it is safe to see your dentist! Remember, dental work is considered essential. This is because delaying treatment puts you at risk for dental infection, more involved procedures, more expensive care, and an increased risk of a depressed immune system from lack of productive sleep. We want you to know that at SoundBridge, we take your health as seriously as we do our own. The dental office is safer than any other place you can be—trust us!!
