MESSAGE FROM DR. FOULK
REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
We are open.
I just wanted to take a moment to attest to our commitment to the health and safety our patients and the community during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
We will continue to support the healthcare system here in the Reno area by promoting, maintaining, and treating the oral health of our patients. Do not hesitate to contact us about your health concerns during this time. Your oral health is important, and should not be ignored. Doing so may cause emergencies down the road that could be an additional burden on you and the hospitals in the area.
In order to provide an abundance of caution, we will be taking each patient's temperature prior to treatment and limiting the number of people in our office to below 10. Please help us with this by notifying us prior to your appointment if you have a fever, and by limiting other people accompanying you to your appointment.
We always strive to minimize your wait time in our waiting area, but during this time you can call us when you pull into the parking lot and wait in your car while we prepare the exam room for you.
As always, we adhere to strict infection control policies including proper hand hygiene, use of face masks, and continually disinfecting and sterilizing the office between each patient.
In addition, we will be limiting the number of patients on our schedule to minimize direct contact, to allow for proper screening of patients and office cleaning between appointments, and to ensure we are available for emergency patients.
As recommended by the Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners, we would also ask that you postpone any elective procedures through the end of March. This is to allow us to focus on more essential health procedures.
I reiterate: we are open for your health care.
Thank you. Wash your hands, be kind, and let us know if there is anything you need.
—Dr. Cameron Foulk, DMD
