Covid-19 Update

Dear Patients of Glastonbury Family Dental,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last two years. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

You will see some changes at our office as it is our goal to provide dental care in the safest way possible during the pandemic. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you before your appointment to ask some COVID-19 screening questions. When you arrive at the office you will have your temperature taken.
  • We ask that you arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment time. It is very important you arrive on time to allow for the extra precautions we are taking due to COVID-19.
  • We have hand sanitizer that you may use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office.
  • Other steps we have taken: We will be updating staff temperatures and medical history daily. We have purchased HEPA air filters with UVC sanitation for use in many areas.

We are looking forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we have taken to keep our staff, and every patient, safe in our practice.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Sincerely, Nimesh L Patel, DMD, Jeffrey A Cohan, DMD and the entire staff of Glastonbury Family Dental (860.633.6246)

Smile! You're in good hands.

We would like to welcome you to our office. We take great satisfaction in helping you maintain optimal oral health. Our practice is devoted to comprehensive and preventive patient care.
