Our Dental Services Are Open and Ready to Serve You

We have received permission to reopen AltaMed Dental Services from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). We know this came just in time as many of you and your family members are overdue for your dental care due to COVID-19.

We have done our research on the best ways to make our dental offices safe for patients to come for treatment and for our employees to work. We are following the guidelines prepared by CDPH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the California Dental Association (CDA) about how to safely return to practice.

We have adjusted how we receive and see patients based on these guidelines to keep everyone safe.

More Time Between Appointments 
 

  • Reduced number of appointments per day to meet social distancing guidelines and allow time to clean and disinfect exam rooms after each patient visit.
  • Provide more time between patients to reduce waiting times for you and reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

Patient Guest Limits 
 

  • To keep proper social distancing, we ask for only one parent or guardian to accompany pediatric patients to their appointment.  
  • Adult patients are encouraged to come on their own. If you bring a guest, they may be asked to wait outside while you are being seen by the dentist or hygienist. 

Check-in Process 
 

  • You will need to register for your appointment over the phone and remain in your car until you are notified that the room is ready for you.  
  • You will need to wear a face-covering or mask upon arrival.
  • We will ask you screening questions and take your temperature with a no-touch thermal scanning thermometer. 
  • After passing the screening, when you are called to come in, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entry to the office. 

We May Look A Little Different

Our AltaMed dental offices may look a little different than you are used to but, we are the same friendly and caring place as before. 
 

  • We will all be wearing masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) for additional protection for you and our team.  
  • All exam rooms have new air filtration units to continuously decontaminate the air.
  • An oral air suction device was installed to protect you and our team from airborne diseases.

Here’s something to smile about: it’s easy to access AltaMed Dental Services

A healthy mouth means much more than a great-looking smile: the health of your mouth reflects the health of your entire body. And that goes both ways, since good oral hygiene can help keep you healthy.

Because oral health is so important, AltaMed makes it easy to see a dentist, with complete dental offices built into many of our health centers. Visit us early and often, so we can keep your whole mouth healthy. In addition to X-rays, cleanings, and visual exams, we also provide more intensive services.

An Ounce of Prevention

When it comes to your teeth, aim for prevention! Daily brushing and flossing is important, but you should still go to your dentist’s office at least twice a year for regular cleanings and X-rays. Besides helping you avoid the pain of a cavity, regular screenings can help save you money.

Family Dentistry

Get your entire family on a good oral health routine that includes brushing and flossing, and regular appointments at your local AltaMed Dental locations. The American Dental Association recommends at least once or twice a year for normal checkups; however, some individuals may need to see their dentist a little more frequently. Your dentist can give you personalized recommendations.

To prevent oral disease, young children should start seeing the dentist around 1 month old. The best thing you can do to start healthy habits for your children is to set a good example yourself. That includes a routine of proper brushing and flossing, as well as regular checkups at AltaMed. With the right care, you’ll all keep your teeth for life!

Broke teeth

Those Who Need Extra Care

The American Dental Association typically recommends that you see the dentist once or twice a year, but for some people, that isn’t enough to maintain good oral health. And your mouth and your teeth influence the health of the rest of your body, so it’s important to see the dentist more often.

Those who may need to see their AltaMed dentist more frequently include:

 

  • Smokers
  • Crowns
  • Pregnant women
  • Diabetics
  • People who tend to get cavities or build up plaque
  • People with a weak immune response to bacterial infection

If you’re under a lot of stress or you’re sick, you may also need to see the dentist more frequently. Your AltaMed dentist always has your best health in mind, and will come up with a convenient schedule for you.
