Happy 2021 from Simsbury Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry! We are ready for a new year, new goals, and exciting times ahead. On today’s blog, we look ahead to the months to come and share with you our goals and hopes for what the new year will bring.
As we enter into the new year our team will continue to adhere to strict health and safety protocols in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. The health and safety of our patients, their families, and our team is our top priority. For this, we will continue to monitor local statistics, follow state and federal guidelines and mandates, promote good oral hygiene, especially for those who are unable or not yet ready to visit the dentist, and be good role models for mask-wearing and handwashing with our little patients. With the availability of the vaccine on the horizon, it won’t be much longer until we have a return to normalcy. Until then, let’s all do our part to stay safe and healthy!
We are so pleased to announce that our team will receive our COVID-19 vaccines this month! It is the next big step in the fight to get control over this virus that has dominated our lives for too long. We will still need to wear PPE and maintain all of our safety and sanitation protocols, however.
As for our team’s personal goals in the new year, we would all like to focus on our health and stay physically active as much as possible. We want to get off the couch and move more! 2020 was a very sedentary year for many of us and with the cold weather, it makes it harder to get out and exercise. Through the remaining winter months, we are going to incorporate more indoor activity with our families, even if it means just taking more laps around the house!
We, as a business, would like to do more community outreach in the year new. While we can’t visit area preschools or daycares to promote good oral hygiene like we normally do, we created a video they can show to their students in February for Children’s Dental Health Month. Other office goals include keeping our appointment calendar full, staying on top of potential cancellations, continuing office training, and trying our best to anticipate issues before they arise and become problems.
On this month’s blog, we’d love to highlight Kay and Alison from our amazing hygiene team! These two fantastic hygienists really know how to keep their patients laughing and we so appreciate them! Our patients are so happy to see them and they always leave with a huge smile on their faces!
Be on the lookout for our next quarterly promotion! The prize will be $500 to RidgeLine Bikes. To enter, write a review and get 1 entry, refer a friend, and get 2. The drawing will be held on April 1, 2021, just in time to get out and enjoy the warmer weather.
We hope you’re all having a phenomenal start to the year and we can’t wait to see you in the office!
