**Please print to bring in before your appointment!
We hope this message finds you and yours healthy. We wanted to give you an update below on the status of the practice during the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.
We ARE open for appointments, Monday through Friday from 8 am until 3 pm depending on the availability of the doctors, hygienists, and staff. We are following the recommended guidelines for the State of Virginia, so we are appointing our patients with social distancing in mind. You may be asked to have anyone that accompanies you to your appointment wait in the car. Please do not bring children who are not being seen to the appointment. As a result of the need for our office to combat COVID-19, we must buy additional supplies to comply with the guidelines given to us by the ADA, VDA, and state of Virginia. We regularly purchase additional personal protective equipment for our staff, (masks, shields, gloves, clothing) and extra supplies to disinfect our office and treatment rooms. Therefore, to cover the cost of these necessary items, we are assessing a $10 fee per appointment for these additional supplies. This fee is to be paid upon arrival or prior to your appointment. As a courtesy, we will submit this fee to your insurance company. If they cover the cost of that fee we will reimburse you or credit your account. If you would like to call your insurance company ahead of time to see if it is a covered fee, please refer to ADA Code D1999.
Although we do not wish to do this, the cost of materials we now need to ensure the safety of our patients and our staff has increased by 500% because of the disposable nature of such protective equipment and additional germicides, etc. Again, thank you for your support, understanding, and patience during this crisis. Rest assured that once restrictions are lifted and the coronavirus is behind us we will resume business as usual. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call our office at 703-777-1515 and speak to Ana or Katia. They are happy to help you. These are tough times. However, we will not only get through this, we will emerge stronger after it!
