“I enjoy working with the patients at my office. Bringing back your ability to comfortably smile is what drives my passion!”

Some of my highlights

This taught him all of those great skills and attitudes that our farmers are well known for – honesty, integrity, family values and hard work. He, his wife and four children return to Quincy frequently to spend time on the farm. After graduating from Brigham Young University, and then Marquette University School of Dentistry, Dr. Child worked in Klamath Falls, Oregon as the Community Service Director of the Community Health Center. He has been practicing dentistry in Spokane since 2003, and takes great pride in providing his patients with unsurpassed, quality dental care in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

To our valued patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward with hope.

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are designed to keep you 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 follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act (WISHA).  We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

We’ve made a few changes to help protect our patients and staff.
For example:

  • Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
  • Use hand sanitizer that will be available when you enter the office.  Each patient will be asked to complete a Covid-19 screening questionnaire upon check-in, after sanitizing.
  • Our waiting room no longer offers magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • We ask that you not bring additional guests with you so we can reduce the number of people in the reception area with respect to social distancing recommendations.  If your appointment requires you have a driver, your companion will be asked to wait in the car and we will notify them when your appointment is nearing completion.
  • Air purification units have been installed in treatment rooms that create the potential for aerosols.  This is a new sound around here, you are welcome to listen to music on your own device if you would like.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 509-468-1685 or visit our website at www.childfamilydentistry.com.

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

Sincerely,

Dr. Brent L. Child and Team
