What’s New at Philly Dentistry
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our daily lives. Throughout the changes though, an important factor shines through – health and safety. The health and safety of our patients has always been our number one priority at Philadelphia Dentistry. We have implemented new procedures at our office to ensure the best environment. All in all, these slight changes align with our consistent priority of health and safety. That is something our patients are most definitely used to!
What to Expect: Before Your Appointment
When booking your appointment, you will be asked some quick health questions. These questions are asked to ensure no one who has been exposed to COVID-19 comes into our office. For example, “Have you tested positive for COIVD-19,” is one of our standard questions. You will be asked these same questions again once you arrive for your appointment. This will ensure nothing has changed with your health since the last time we spoke. We also ask that you limit the number of people you bring with you to your appointment. Ideally, our patients would come alone. Check out this video to watch our new building entry procedure, as we walk you through it step by step!
What to Expect: During Your Appointment
It is required that all patients wear masks to enter our building. When you arrive, you may be asked to wait outside until we are ready for you to come up. We do this to reduce the number of patients in our office and to reduce the amount of time you are close to other people. You will also have your temperature taken to ensure you are under the degree limit of 100.4° or higher. Expect to see your doctors and hygienists dressed in disposable gowns, double-masked, wearing face shields and scrub caps. Rest assured; a friendly face is always behind the mask.

What to Expect: After Your Appointment
After your appointment, our staff will clean the room. Cleanliness is another thing we hold to a high standard at Philadelphia Dentistry. We only want the best environment for our patients. We clean our rooms with disinfectants that are effective against the virus. We do this to prepare for the next patient, and frequently throughout the day. By keeping our office clean, we are reducing the risk of spreading the virus to others.
Maintaining good health involves visiting your dentist regularly. Therefore, don’t forget to book your next appointment with us on your way out. To stay connected with us, follow us on social media @PhillyDentistry on Instagram, @PhiladelphiaDentistry on Facebook, and @DrKenCirkaDMD on Twitter!
