Dear Miami Designer Smiles Patients:
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 our Miami Designer Smiles team and our patients 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 agency’s recommendations.
Keep in mind that the universal COVID precautions in effect since the 1980s have protected us and our patients from many viruses and bacteria. Now in the post-COVID world, we want to continue to evolve and improve our protocols, and Drs. Garcia and Sanchez-Garcia are invested in technological advances to not only meet the CDC and ADA guidelines, but also exceed them.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team. Some of the additional measures you may notice are:
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.
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 or text our office at 305-595-4616. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Drs. Raul & Conchi Garcia
