*** If you have contracted/tested positive for the Coronavirus in the past, please be sure to bring to your appointment the letter stating your positive COVID-19 result as well as your now negative COVID-19 status. ***
We at the office of Portia J. Bell DDS Inc. continue to uphold our in-depth cleanliness and COVID-19 protocols. Recently Governor Mike DeWine rescinded the Mask Mandate for Ohioans. We at the office of Dr. Bell will continue to require all patients and guests to wear a mask or face covering at all possible times.
We as a team will maintain all CDC guidelines regarding proper sanitation, PPE apparel and social distancing. All team members will continue to have their temperature checked at the beginning of each day and all patients at their appointment time.
As members of the health and dental community it is our duty to insure the health and wellness of our patients. By abiding all CDC guidelines and remaining diligent in our COVID-19 safety procedures we hope to serve each and every one of our patients safely and proficiently.
This month Dr. Bell wants to remind you of the importance of mouthwash in your daily oral health care routine. Gargling mouthwash for 30 seconds twice a day reduces the bacterial colonies in the mouth, keeping your breath fresh and your mouth healthy!
We are continuing to implement and improve our COVID-19 protocols to keep our patients and Team Members safe.
Watch the video below to hear how we accomplish just that!
All patients are asked to do a pre-clinical rinse with an anti-bacterial mouthwash, Listerine. This rinse will reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth & throat prior to any dental treatment.
Please be assured that our office is following the developing situation regarding the 2019 novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, and taking the precautions and preventative practices being recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC).
In an attempt to put your mind at ease regarding the current crisis, we wanted to reiterate to you how our office has always adhered to the highest standards of cleanliness and sterility in our normal practice.
We are committed to your health and safety along with your comfort. When visiting the office, please feel free to ask any questions and we will be more than happy to explain to you or demonstrate procedures. Please remember, having a healthy mouth is essential to maintaining a healthy body.
