Keeping the Tend community safe

A safer dental visit begins before you come in

Pre-visit health check

We'll get in touch to ask if you've been sick, or around anyone sick. If you have, we'll ask you to reschedule—and make doing so super easy. This helps keep everyone healthy.

Contactless check-in

We'll collect your insurance and credit card info digitally. This helps ensure a contactless check-in, with nothing changing hands. It also saves you time, for a shorter, safer visit.

We put safety first when you arrive

From an on-site temperature check to staggered visit times, we prioritize your health at every step.

Temperature check

We'll take your temperature with a contactless thermometer. Feverish? We'll ask you to reschedule.

Masks provided

We require masks in the studio. If you forgot to bring your own, we'll provide you with one.

Social distancing maintained

We'll require everyone to maintain six feet of separation as they move through the studio.

Staggered visit times

For safety, we ensure minimal overlap in the hallways, so the studio will feel calm and quiet.

Zero waiting

You'll be seen right away, so you won’t need to wait in any common areas.

The Brushery temporarily closed

We are redesigning The Brushery to be a single-occupancy space that is sanitized after each use.

A clinical experience that’s safer for everyone

You’ll be cared for in a sanitized space, with sterilized equipment, by a clinical team in enhanced PPE.

Sterilized equipment

All of our clinical equipment is either single-use or thoroughly sterilized.

Enhanced PPE

Our clinical team wears gloves, masks, and for enhanced protection, face shields.

Anti-viral rinse

We’ll ask you to rinse with hydrogen peroxide to reduce the viral load in the mouth.

Same-day dentistry

To reduce trips to the studio and germ exposure while in transit, we offer treatment right away.

Follow-up health check

Two weeks after you come in, we'll reach out to see if you’ve shown any symptoms of illness.

Protecting our team

We provide our team with daily health checks, masks for commutes, laundry service, and more.


Real-time safety updates

We are closely monitoring the CDC, ADA, and OSHA. As they update their guidelines, we will update our safety practices in real time.


Other Services

Virtual visits

Not sure if you need to be seen? We’re offering free virtual visits with our Head of Clinical Development, Dr. Marc Schlenoff. He’ll talk to you about your concern and provide a recommendation on how to proceed.
