Here at DeCapite Dental, we have been thinking about you, and we hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. Everyone is going through a lot, and we are all eager to start our normal routines again.

As we welcome you back to our office, we want to reassure you that your safe treatment here is our number one goal. We are following the most recent advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our professional organizations (American Dental Association, and Michigan Dental Association) to make the necessary changes to keep you, our other patients, and our staff safe from infection.

The precautionary procedures we have implemented include:

  • The carpet has been steam cleaned.
  • The air ducts have been professionally sanitized.
  • The walls have been washed.
  • Questions regarding the health of our patients will be required to be answered before each appointment.
  • The temperature of each patient and employee will be taken before entry into the office.
  • Sanitizer will be available in the waiting room for patient use before appointments.
  • We will be allowing for more downtime between appointments to promote social distancing between patients, and to allow more time for proper sanitation of office equipment and operatories.
  • Chairs in the waiting room will be placed more than 6 feet apart.
  • Patients will have the option to wait in their cars before their appointments.
  • Hard-to-disinfect items, such as magazines, will be removed from the waiting room to maximize the potential for cleanliness.
  • Plexi-Glass protectors will be placed at the reception desk to reduce contact between staff and patients.
  • All staff will be wearing the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Dr. DeCapite will continue to advocate for patient safety during and after this pandemic, as our office sets the community example for others in regards to patient protection.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and every patient safe in our office.

Please call us at (734) 744-5457 if you have any questions or to make an appointment.

Thank you for supporting us through these changes. We look forward to seeing you soon.
