COVID-19 Update

Our practice will remain open for emergencies until June 4th.

First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our patients, community, and staff are always our highest priorities.

The current COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly, and we want to reassure you we are monitoring the most up-to-date guidance from multiple trusted sources, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Dental Association, and more.

As a practice, we follow CDC and OSHA guidelines to prevent the spread of infectious diseases at all times. Please be assured we’re committed to providing a safe experience for all of our guests, as always!

If you are experiencing any pain, swelling, bleeding, or have any trauma to your jaw or your teeth, please call us at 781-749-6050. We will accommodate you in a timely manner to come see Dr. Khayat.

 

What have we been doing to perfect your experience?

Even though our office has been closed for non-elective procedures since March 19th, we have not stopped preparing for our reopening, which is now set for June 4th.

Infection control has always been part of the policies and best practices of South Shore Prosthodontics. We strive to always provide the best experience in the safest environment. The nature of the COVID-19 virus has made us raise the bar even higher. And we are getting ready to tackle the transmission of the virus upon reopening.

Air sterilizers and aerosols high speed suctions have been installed in each room, and we are also reorganizing all the airflow of the HVAC system to prevent any potential cross-contamination.

We will be putting a new protocol in place to follow the State and the DPH guidelines and ensure the safety of our patients and team members.

A video will be available soon while we are ready to open.

 

“Should I reschedule my appointment?”

In order for the dental industry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide to postpone elective procedures. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.

If you have an appointment scheduled before June 4th, please consider it canceled. We will contact you as soon as we can to reschedule your appointment upon our reopening.

 

Additional information regarding COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is central to responding to this threat and a good source of information. More information regarding how to protect yourself can be found on their website.

The CDC provides dentists with a list of Standard Precautions, which we have followed for years and will always continue to follow. Their guidelines are instrumental in keeping our patients and staff safe as well as preventing the spread of any infection. Additional resources:
