We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at office number or visit our website at web address. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Sincerely, The Nashville Dental Implant Center Team
Want to improve your smile and oral health? Full-mouth restoration may be the right solution for you. Teeth restoration in Nashville can remove or help alleviate oral health issues due to any number of different complications within the jawline and gum, issues with your teeth, dental crowns, bridges, and other oral health issues. In many cases the patients can leave with fixed teeth the day of surgery.
Benefits of Full Mouth Restoration
Improved Health: Full mouth reconstruction helps to rebuild your appearance while at the same time restoring your dental health. Full mouth reconstruction or full mouth rehabilitation can include dental implants, dental veneers, bridges, dental onlays, and crowns. The combination of these will help improve chewing and improve overall dental health.
Great looking Smile: Reconstruction straightens crooked or misaligned teeth and whiten discolored or yellowing teeth. It will help to improve your quality of life and can bring back that great looking smile.
More Comfort: Treatment offers firm, stable, and natural looking teeth. Patients can eat almost anything they like and can smile with confidence again. With dental implants, reconstuction can also stop the destructive bone loss process caused by the trauma of wearing dentures.
Teeth Today: This advanced type of treatment allows the patient to leave the same day with fixed stable teeth. Dr. Locante has been at the forefront of Teeth Today since its inception.
