Important Coronavirus Update from Short Pump Dental
Posted on 06/01/2020

This is a difficult time for all of us as we navigate our way through the coronavirus. From our family at Short Pump Dental, we certainly hope that you and your family stay healthy as we get through this crisis together. As we learn more about COVID-19, we will be providing you with information about how it may impact your dental care and our office procedures.

Short Pump Dental Always Maintains the Highest Standards for Patient Safety

In recent months, the media, all industries of business, and people, in general, have been putting extra emphasis on the importance of precautionary cleanliness and health safeguarding measures. It is important to remember that our Henrico, VA, office has always followed all requirements from the American Dental Association (ADA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) to protect our patients’ health.

Your safety is important to us every day and always has been! In terms of patient care, our professional and experienced team members wear protective gear, including gowns, masks, eye protection, PPE gear, surgical caps, visors, and gloves to ensure your safety. Our Short Pump Dental facility strictly adheres to OSHA’s requirements to maintain a sanitary environment during the workday by thoroughly cleaning all surfaces. Our office is cleaned at regular intervals—consistently and thoroughly disinfecting dental treatment rooms, dental equipment and instruments, our waiting room, bathrooms, and our reception area. And we even make sure we wipe down the waiting room reading materials, children’s toys, and other items we have for our patients’ enjoyment. We have also installed medical-grade air filtration, UV sterilization, and have a closed waiting room with a phone check-in operating in place!

Our Short Pump Dental Office is Open

Given our strict, continuous commitment to health and safety, our dentistry in Henrico, VA, remains open at this time to serve all of your dental treatment needs. We are very confident that our patient care and facility procedures will keep our patients and dental staff safe. In-office, we do advise social distancing practices at this time. So if you prefer, instead of using our waiting room you may call to let us know when you’ve arrived and remained in your car until we let you know that it is time to come into our office.

Doing Your Part

In the interest of our patients, as well as our staff, we ask that if you have an upcoming appointment with Short Pump Dental and are currently experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, and/or have traveled out of the country in the last two weeks, please reschedule your appointment for a later time. Call 804-747-0116 to reschedule your appointment now.

We Care about Your Dental Health & Health in General!

At Short Pump Dental, we care about the health of all our patients, and caring for your safety as we provide exceptional dental treatment is our number one priority. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you wish to modify an appointment time, you can request an appointment here. We are here for you and our team is inspired by the sense of community that this unprecedented situation is creating. We will get through this by working together!
