Latest COVID-19 updates from Dr. Maron's dental office

COVID-19 "new normal" patient guidelines as of August 1, 2020

Patients who come to Dr. Maron's office must comply with the following guidelines and changes in routine:

  • Do not come to the office if you are showing any signs of illness, such as coughing, sneezing, chills, or fever.
  • Do not bring additional people to the office unless you depend on them for transportation or mobility.
  • When you arrive at the office, text us or call us if you want to wait in your car until we are ready to bring you into the treatment room. You can also wait in the waiting room, which we have divided into three areas with screens.
  • You must wear a mask when entering our office. No one will be allowed to enter without a mask.
  • You must maintain social distancing in the office just as you would outside the office. The exception, of course, is when you are being treated, when we take other precautions for your safety.
  • Tissue paper dispensers are located outside and inside the office so that you can use the tissue paper to touch door knobs.
  • Upon entering the office, go to the front desk to have your temperature taken with a touchless thermometer. Our staff will also have their temperatures checked everyday.
  • All of our rooms have air purifiers to filter the air.
  • When you enter the treatment room, we will ask you to rinse with an antiviral solution for 30 seconds and then gargle for 15 seconds more before spitting.
  • You will also coat your hands with a special molecular iodine solution that is antiviral and antibacterial and will protect you for several hours. (For more information, see
  • Our clinical personnel will be wearing masks and face shields and other PPE.
  • At the end of your visit, you will go to the check out desks, which now have splatter plexiglass to prevent aerosol transmission. New credit card terminals will only require that you depress a ""Yes" or "No" button with a disinfected pointer stick.
  • For your convenience and added safety, we now also offer credit card payment from our website.

We believe that all of these guidelines and routines will ensure a safe environment for our patients and staff.
