Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Our offices are open full-time.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
As a reminder, for all patients — surgical and non-surgical — we offer telemedicine/virtual visits accessible from the comfort and safety of your own home. We are also seeing patients in our office with enhanced safety/health procedures.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office closely adheres to infection control guidelines provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH), the American Dental Association (ADA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA).
You may notice some changes when it is time for your next appointment.
Here is what you can expect as we maintain a COVID-safe environment at PennDIOS:
- All patients are being screened prior to their appointment per CDC guidelines. Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions. You may be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- All employees and providers in direct contact with patients are being screened daily in the same manner as our patients and wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in accordance with PA DOH, ADA, CDC and OSHA and guidelines.
- All offices provide seating that complies with social distancing guidelines.

“I had 2 molars removed (17 & 18) and didn't feel a thing! Before I knew it, they were out! If I ever need oral surgery again there is no one else I will see. I would HIGHLY recommend him!”

“I was extremely nervous about implant surgery. Thanks to Dr. Dachowski and his staff, my experience was definitely “two thumbs up”! I recommend this team very highly!.”
