dental patient check in process during COVID-19

The check-in process is often the first point of an in-person contact between the dental team and patients. After reopened, practices can follow our 7-step guide below to reduce the risk of cross-contamination in the dental office. Our guide follows recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA).

The New Patient Check-In Process for Dental Offices

Step 1: Ask patients to call you when they arrive and wait in their cars.

Step 2: Call patients to come in the office when it’s their appointment time.

Step 3: Have hand sanitizer available for use.

Step 4: Check their temperature with a thermometer. Remember to disinfect the thermometer between uses.

Step 5: Ask them to complete a patient screening form to identify potential COVID-19 cases. Read our article on dental patient screening during COVID-19.

Step 6: Consider giving pens to patients rather than reusing. If reusing, remember to disinfect them between uses.

Step 7: Use wipes or cleaners to clean touchable surfaces, clipboard, counter, etc. after each appointment.
