CLOTH COVERINGS: Pursuant to the Executive Orders issued by Governor Whitmer, Sunrise respectfully requests that you wear a cloth covering/mask over your nose and mouth when coming to our offices. If you choose not to wear a covering (other than during your actual appointment), we would ask that you wait in your car or outside our offices until you are notified we are ready to see you for your appointment. We thank you for abiding by this guideline to protect you and our team members. We will keep you informed as to when this requirement has been removed.
INFECTION CONTROL/PROTECTIONS. As always, Sunrise continues to provide a safe and healthy environment for our patients and team members. Sunrise will continue to update and implement disinfecting and sterilization procedures with guidance provided by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), American Dental Association (ADA), Michigan Dental Association (MDA) and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MI-OSHA). We continue to acknowledge and encourage social distancing; have installed physical Plexiglas barriers; use disinfectants and sterilization procedures that are proven effective against many concerning pathogens, including COVID-19; instituted a variety of “no-contact” protocols; and, have installed air purification systems that continually treat the air our team and patients breathe throughout the entire office. Sunrise hopes these added measures afford comfort to and confidence in our patients and Team Members that these steps will help limit the transmission of communicable diseases at our offices.
