The CU School of Dental Medicine is closely monitoring the guidance from the CDPHE, CDC, U.S. Department of State. The CU Anschutz Medical Campus also has additional COVID-19 resources online.
As a precaution, the CDPHE and the CDC have provided these tips to help prevent the spread of coronavirus:
Again, your health and safety and the health and safety of others are important to us.
The CU Dental clinics are open for care by appointment only. The CU Emergency Clinic is open for walk-in appointments on a first come, first serve basis.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will see some changes to our protocols. We did this for your safety and the safety of our dental providers. As a healthcare facility, we require everyone to wear a face covering/mask while in our building.
What to Expect Before/Day of Your Appointment
Appointment Confirmation: CU Dental will send you an email before your appointment. Please use the link included in the email to confirm your appointment. If you do not, you will receive a confirmation text and may be subject to messaging charges based on your plan.
Health Screening Questions: When you arrive for your appointment, we will ask COVID-19 screening questions.
If your answer is “yes” to any of the following, please contact your clinic to reschedule:
Do you have ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS (not related to hay fever or seasonal allergies)?:
- Have you had close personal contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case in the last 14 days or anyone who is symptomatic?
- Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
Physical Distancing: Appointments will be managed to allow for physical (social) distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
Kiosks: If you use the kiosks to check into your appointment, we ask that you wipe it down after use with the sanitizing wipes provided.
Be Prompt: We ask you to be on time for your appointment. If you’re late, we may need to reschedule your appointment. Please call your clinic if there is an issue.
Vaccinations: Regardless of your vaccination status, you will be required to follow all School of Dental Medicine safety protocols.
