Dental Infection Control in Guilford, CT

At Friedler Dental Group in Guilford, CT, we understand the impact COVID-19 has had on our lives. Now that we’re starting to see patients at a gradual pace, we’ve taken a few precautions to keep you and your loved ones, and our team as safe as possible.

General Measures

  • We will operate with social distancing in mind to maintain the recommended distance between our patients.
  • Waiting times will be minimized, and patients should wait in their cars upon arrival until we give you the green light to come up to the office.
  • Our hospital-grade filtration system will prevent the spread of the aerosol particles during dental procedures.
  • All of your information and visits will remain private in compliance with HIPAA protocols.
  • We ask you that you arrive at your appointment unaccompanied. Visitors will not be allowed.


  • Patients will be screened for the symptoms of COVID-19, recent travel, and recent contact with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases.
  • We ask that our patients wash their hands upon arriving at our office.
  • Your temperature will be taken, and we will also measure your oxygen saturation using a pulse oximeter (completely painless).
  • Patients who think they might have COVID-19 or have been in contact with confirmed or suspected cases should reschedule their appointments at a later date.
  • Please consider rescheduling if you’re immunocompromised or a high-risk group for your own safety and wellbeing.

Face Masks

  • Our clinical and administrative staff will be wearing face masks.
  • Patients are required to wear face masks to their appointments.
  • Surgical masks and homemade fabric masks will do; you do not need an N95 mask.
  • Let us know if you need a face mask as we have a limited supply of extra masks.
  • You can remove your mask in the dental treatment room as our HEPA air filtration equipment makes our dental operatory safe.

Appointments and Emergencies

Patients experiencing dental emergencies should call our office for a phone assessment before coming in.
