WE HAVE RE-OPENED

Our community has been through a lot over the last couple months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority of our dental practice, and you may have seen that we take great pride in this. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep the patients, staff, and the ones we come in contact with in our daily lives safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

Here are some new changes we have made to ensure your safety:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office, and we will be taking your temperature. Based on your answers and if your temperature is 100.4°F or higher, we will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Similarly, please limit the personal belongings that you bring inside to your appointment.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients when possible. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. Please respect the social distancing requirement of 6 feet where practical.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time. To that end, please consider calling from your car to check on the status of the reception area and be on time. Also, please come alone to your appointments. If needed, one guardian/caretaker is permitted, but they must remain in the reception area.
  • Please arrive with face masks/coverings for they will be required at all times for both patients and staff when appropriate.
  • An antiseptic mouth rinse will be used just prior to treatment for the health and safety of all. Where possible, expect changes in how we do certain procedures to eliminate or reduce the spread of aerosols and splatter during treatment. For example, for now we will be temporarily eliminating ultrasonic tools and teeth polishing during your teeth cleaning appointments until further notice.
  • Clear sneeze guard barriers between you and our front desk personnel will be used to aid in social distancing, and we ask that we all limit our conversations to what’s necessary to limit contact time. More regular and frequent sanitizing of high touch areas and items will be done for your health and safety. This includes door and other handles, light switches, countertops, etc.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 415-752-8311 .

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Sincerely,
Dr. Leo Arellano

Patients seeking a practice offering general and cosmetic dentistry should look no further than Dr. Arellano and his team.

Dr. Arellano offers a variety of solutions, which include:

  • Gum Disease – treatment for gum disease, or “periodontal disease” is important to avoid the risk of damaging the teeth, bone, and gums. Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment are available.
  • Invisalign – a straighter smile is easily achieved with the use of Invisalign aligner trays, which provide an alternative to more traditional braces.
  • Teeth Whitening – a brighter smile is a beautiful smile! Achieve stunning results with professional whitening solutions.
  • Veneers – veneers are ceramic facings that are bonded over the front of the teeth to disguise cosmetic problems including permanent stains, fractures, and gaps between the teeth. These are best for the anterior (front) teeth.
  • Implants – the go-to option for tooth replacement is often dental implants. Dental implants provide predictable replacement of teeth and may function better than alternatives.
  • Crowns – a dental crown is used in many dental situations. Patients may use crowns for repairing broken teeth, strengthening weak ones, or replacing a tooth with an implant.
  • Bridges – dental bridges are an alternative to dental implants and provide replacement of one or more teeth.
