Patients and families,
TLC Dental Care is closely monitoring the reports of COVID-19 in the area and are taking appropriate precautions in addition to following OSHA and CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of any respiratory illnesses including COVID-19. Please rest assured that we are taking and will continue to take all steps necessary to insure the safety of our patients, staff and families in the Knoxville and surrounding area.
We are following the direction and guidance of the government jurisdictions in which we operate. With practical steps of thoroughly disinfecting all surfaces that come in contact with patients and staff, sterilizing all instruments per OSHA guidelines as well as regular hand washing, and following protocols consistent with good public health practices, we believe it is safe to continue to see our patients for their regular scheduled appointments. As usual we routinely do not have crowded waiting rooms which fits right in the guidelines of social distancing.
If you are experiencing any symptoms identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the virus, please call to reschedule your appointment, refrain from attending any public areas such as church’s, schools or work and take the necessary steps to get tested by your local physician.
TLC Dental Care also wants to underscore the impact that wide-spread panic could have on schools and community and we are committed to helping our patients and community to be safe. We will make every effort to continue to keep our office open to serve our patients, but may have to adjust our scheduling if local and or governmental action mandates such action.
Also, as usual, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
As always we appreciate your support and will continue offering excellent dental service to you.
Dr Terrie Cribbs and dedicated Team
