At Northeast Connecticut Dental Associates, your health and the health of our staff are of the utmost importance. The following procedures are in place to ensure everyone's health. We ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this uncertain time.

Our office will communicate with you before your appointment. We will ask you a few screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.

Once you arrive at the office, we ask that you remain in your car. Please call the front desk (860-963-7676). A staff member will then meet you outside by your car to perform the initial evaluation. This evaluation will include relevant screening questions and a temperature check. If you display any symptoms or have a temperature above 100.4°F, we will reschedule your appointment.

Please wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you. We will also provide hand sanitizer.

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 and waiting area at any one time. We ask that no more than one additional family member or guardian accompany you to your appointment. 

If you develop any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 within the two weeks following your appointment, please inform us.

  • If you have an illness or are exhibiting symptoms, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your dental appointment. Some illness and symptoms include:
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Muscle pain
    • Sore throat
    • New loss of taste or smell
  • Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone around you has been exposed to COVID-19 or who has quarantined as a precaution.

If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled dental appointment.

Thank you for your understanding and continued patronage.
