We’ve all had at least one or two…sometimes more…appointments put off over the last couple of months. Well visits to the doctor, haircuts (don’t get us started on dearly-missed haircuts) and, of course, visits to the dentist. As Governor Baker’s plans to reopen businesses have unfolded and Phase 1 went into effect last week, we had the opportunity to be a part of our favorite dentist’s office safety plan to reopen.
Hastily erected plexiglass barriers have been used as barriers between check-out clerks at our local grocery and drug stores over the last month or so. Now, in order to open safely, offices are doing the same thing for their front desk staff – including in the reception area of our dentist’s office in Cambridge.
Rather than erect an easily-broken and flimsy plexiglass shield, our own Asher Greenberg redesigned the front reception area with new safety standards in mind. Asher brought in Matt Smith, Special Projects Manager from Allstate Glass Co. for the installation. As you can imagine, we rushed to get this project done so that the dentist could open as soon as possible. In fact, the first patient checked in just as we were leaving! Time to reschedule that dental cleaning!
