COVID-19 Update (July 2020)

  • The Hanscom dental clinic staff are working diligently to provide safe and effective care for our patients during this time. The clinic is currently seeing all patients for all treatment except cleanings, elective/esthetic treatments (standard cleanings, veneers, elective orthodontic retainers, and esthetic treatment are deferred at this time). With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, new protective policies have been put into place: Patients will be asked a COVID questionnaire 24 hours prior to their appointment as well as the same day to confirm no symptoms are being experienced and that treatment is safe (if symptoms are being experienced, patients will be referred to their primary care manager [PCM] for the appropriate care). Patients’ temperature will also be taken at the time of appointment to confirm no presence of fever. Providers and technicians will be wearing increased personal protective equipment (PPE) during treatment, this is for the safety of both the patient and the staff, as well as to comply with the latest OSHA and CDC guidance.
  • Initial and annual visit patients are encouraged to complete their health history online by following the link sent to their email on record. Members who hand carry records or have records at other locations are required to bring the dental record to any appointment unless the visit is a dental emergency. 
  • The inflow/outflow of our patients for the dental clinic has also changed due to COVID-19, and is as follows.
  1. All visits are appointment only and we ask that you call prior to any planned visit to the clinic.
    1. Dental Front Desk: 781-225-6324
  2. If you are arriving for your scheduled appointment, you will be asked to call the front desk upon your arrival and remain in your vehicle until the treatment team is ready to meet you inside the main doors of the building.
  3. Upon entering the building, you will be escorted by a dental technician and will have your temperature taken by the front reception staff.
  4. The patient will then be escorted to the dental treatment area and be seated in their specific provider’s treatment room.
  5. After treatment is complete, the patient will be escorted to the door for safe return to their vehicle.
