Great news! Center City Emergency Dentist is now accepting non-emergency dental visits. Standard procedures and cleanings are now available by appointment only.
Since earlier this year, COVID-19 has altered almost every facet of our lives. From shopping at a grocery store to visiting with family members, no aspect of our daily routines has been untouched by the pandemic. This holds true for visits to the dentist’s office as well.
Center City Emergency Dentist has announced a comprehensive safety plan to protect patients and our staff from COVID-19. Not only are we enforcing masks and social distancing, as per the CDC guidelines, but we have also installed HEPA filters to keep our offices safe. Through this safety strategy, Center City Emergency Dentist hopes to mitigate the risk of viral transmission at our facilities. Although we have continued our emergency dental services, we are once again offering a comprehensive line-up of non-emergency procedures in the Philadelphia area for your dental needs.
Appointment Criteria for COVID-19 Office Regulations
Please keep in mind that the following criteria must still be met in order to be seen at Center City Emergency Dentist:
- Only patients will be seen by office staff. If you are accompanying someone to an office visit, please stay in your car or at another location during the visit. The exception for this rule would be in the case of minors accompanied by a single guardian or parent.
- You must arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment to be thoroughly screened by one of our staff. Patients will have their temperature taken, asked to fill out a questionnaire, and asked to thoroughly wash their hands. This will also be required for guardians or parents that are escorting a minor child. If you have a temperature exceeding 100.4 F (as per CDC guidelines), the appointment will be canceled, and you will be advised to seek immediate medical care.
- Social distancing guidelines must be followed in our office at all times. Our waiting room has been updated to allow patients and staff members to be six feet apart.
- A $50.00 deposit is required for ALL scheduled appointments (new and existing patients included). The money can be used towards co-payments or will be refunded at the end of your visit.
Center City Emergency Dentist is dedicated to creating a safe environment for our patients and our staff. By following CDC guidelines and implementing multiple safety precautions, Center City Emergency Dentist aims to continue providing high-quality dental care to the community.
