Dear Friends and Families,
It has been quite a challenging year for most of us in many ways. We hope that this communication finds each of you and your families healthy and well. I would like to begin by thanking all of you for your ongoing support, words of encouragement, and cooperation during your visits to the office over the last year.
The CDC has recently issued new guidelines that some may find confusing. We at Miami Healthy Smiles take our patients, staff’s and family’s health seriously and will continue to provide the best and most efficient services possible, while still maintaining a healthy environment for all. In order to be in compliance, as well as transparent, we are taking the time to communicate our updated office COVID safety policies during this new time of transition.
With this in mind, we would kindly request that each of you continue to wear face masks during your visit to our office (CDC recommends continued face mask use inside health care settings). Exceptions will be made only for those who find this uncomfortable BUT have met the CDC requirements for vaccination. Proof of vaccination and fulfillment of the vaccination requirements and standards need to be met (the applicable dose for the type of vaccine as well as the required 14 days following the last vaccine shot).
Keep in mind, that no vaccine is 100% effective, and therefore, one should act responsibly in the meantime. Each of us is responsible for our actions and how this will impact our families, friends, and community. Simple understanding and consideration are appreciated.
Again, we appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we navigate through this period in time. We may be wearing our masks, but we still have a smile underneath.
Miami Healthy Smiles, Doctors, and Staff
