COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission

Michael Rothstein Dentistry considers the safety of our patients and staff as our first priority. As a result, I wanted to educate our patients on the added precautionary measures we will be implementing in order to reduce your risk of exposure To Covid-19.  These precautions are above and beyond the CDC guidelines.

Due to COVID-19 and our virtual check-in, we are requesting that all patients, existing and new, complete the below forms before arriving to each appointment.

We have added the following precautions:
