Learn how we keep patients and staff safe!
Like many dental facilities, Health Partnership Clinic (HPC) in Olathe, Kan. has seen a decrease in the volume of pediatric dental services. We attribute this mostly because parents are concerned about coming to the dentist office in a pandemic. That’s why we’ve implemented many new policies and procedures and invested heavily in our dental equipment and personal protection equipment (PPE). The safety of our patients and staff is a top priority.
Oral health is just as important as medical health—and that doesn’t change in a pandemic situation. In fact, when you delay dental care for children, the teeth don’t get better on their own, and the problems get worse, and many times may need even more treatment.
At Health Partnership, we follow strict protocols to ensure the safety of our youngest patients so oral health doesn’t have to be delayed. Nader Rastgoftar, DDS, HPC’s general dentist, offers some insights about dental care during a pandemic and the commitment of the dental team.
Remember that regular dental checkups are a must. At HPC, we offer affordable and accessible dental care for children 0-18. To make an appointment call 913-648-2266.
