A Safer Dental Experience with Furstenberg Michael Dr

Welcome to Valley Medical Associates, the premier dental practice led by Dr. Furstenberg Michael in the field of dentistry and dental services. We are thrilled to announce that we have made the decision to end universal masking in our office starting on May 12, 2023. This decision reflects our commitment to providing a safe and comfortable environment for our patients, while still adhering to the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Read on to learn more about our rationale behind this decision and how we strive to deliver exceptional dental care.

Our Commitment to Safety

At Valley Medical Associates, your safety is our utmost priority. We understand that the past year has been challenging for everyone, and we have closely monitored the evolving COVID-19 situation to ensure we implement the necessary precautions to protect our patients and staff. By continuously keeping up-to-date with the latest guidelines and regulations issued by health authorities, we have taken proactive measures to create a safe and secure dental experience for everyone.

The Decision to End Universal Masking

While universal masking has been an effective measure throughout the pandemic, we have taken into consideration several factors in making this decision. With the progress made in widespread vaccination efforts and the decline in COVID-19 cases in our community, we believe it is the right time to adjust our protocols. Our decision is supported by scientific research, expert recommendations, and the guidance of local health authorities.

By ending universal masking, we aim to restore a sense of normalcy while maintaining our commitment to your health and safety. However, please be assured that we will continue to follow strict infection control protocols, including thorough sanitization, regular disinfection of common areas, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) by our dental professionals.

Our Enhanced Safety Measures

While masking will no longer be mandatory for fully vaccinated individuals, we acknowledge that some patients may still prefer to wear masks for personal comfort or other reasons. We fully respect and support individual choices when it comes to personal protective measures and will accommodate your preferences accordingly.

Furthermore, our commitment to maintaining a safe dental environment goes beyond the end of universal masking. We have implemented various enhanced safety measures to continue protecting our patients and staff, such as:

  • Rigorous hand hygiene protocols
  • Increased cleaning and disinfection of our facilities
  • Widespread availability of hand sanitizers
  • Efficient air filtration systems
  • Physical distancing in waiting areas
  • Regular COVID-19 testing for our staff
  • Adherence to all relevant health and safety guidelines
