Our Response to Coronavirus
On May 1st Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville (ADC) returns to normal operating hours. All
patients of record received an email highlighting our updated protocol for COVID-19 screening prior to
and upon arrival of their dental appointments. Some important notes emphasizing these enhanced
safety protocols are the completion of a separate COVID-19 health questionnaire and the taking of
patient temperature by one of our staff members prior to proceeding to the
treatment room. In addition to the changes ADC has made upon check-in, we also made some
important changes to our office space physical appearance to provide staff and patients confidence that
CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety
Administration), VDA (Virginia Dental Association), and ADA (American Dental Association) guidelines
When you enter the office, there is a check-in station prior to the front desk where you will be asked to complete a separate COVID-19 health screening questionnaire and your temperature will be taken. If you are accompanied by a parent/guardian/companion, they will also be screened. While in the waiting room, we ask that you please wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you.
To minimize traffic within the office, we ask that you arrive no more than 15 minutes early for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minutes early, please call the front desk at 434-984-3455 to see if your treatment room is ready.
You may need to reschedule your appointment if you have any of the following:
- Signs of illness that could possibly indicate a fever or the flu, such as chills, headache and generalized achiness
- Coughing, sneezing and shortness of breath
- Had close contact with someone who has had these symptoms
- Have had close contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID-19 or has had symptoms of COVID-19
We ask that you wait a minimum of 14 days before your next appointment if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or have answered yes to any of the above.
If you have any questions, please call the front desk at 434-984-3455. If you have had any of the above AND have a dental emergency, please call the front desk at 434-984-3455 for further guidance.
In order to minimize traffic within the office we ask that you do not bring anyone with you to your appointment. If you are under the age of 18, one parent or guardian will be allowed to accompany you to your appointment. If you are in need of an assistant, one person is allowed to accompany you to your appointment.
ADC is excited and ready to see you for your dental needs! We thank you for your patience and understanding with the changes to your appointment times. We are diligently working to make sure we meet your dental needs and keep all of us safe and healthy. Please be mindful of all social distancing etiquette while in the dental office. We look forward to seeing you soon!
