Our Services During Pandemic
Our office is open for all treatments including both elective and emergency Procedures
The safety and health of our patients and team members remain our number one priority as the world continues to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. As dental professionals, we share the responsibility along with all healthcare workers to ensure a safe environment for all.
We have implemented a number of new processes to assure such safety. These include through review of medical history, Coronavirus questionnaires, and temperature for all guests and team members. We utilize full personal protection devices for all team members and adhere to strict infection control protocols. Our large office and 4 different lounges allow easy social distancing between each guest.
Dr. Kazemi received his vaccination in early January 2o21 and the remaining team members are expected to receive their vaccination by February 2021, as made available by state of Maryland.
