PRE VISIT TESTING FOR COVID 19
We will practice the hospital/surgery approach of pre-visit testing as part of our safety protocol until COVID -19 is no longer present in our community.
HOW THIS WORKS (please read carefully):
- Helix MDx Lab, working in conjunction with the Washtenaw County Health Department, has arranged drive-up testing for the dental community and our patients in the Briarwood Mall parking lot adjacent to the old Sears location at light post marker #16.
- HelixMDx uses an RT-PCR (reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction) COVID-19 test that tests at 40-45 cycles of PCR, which is a very sensitive test, to help reduce the risk of a false-negative result. A false-negative result means that the test shows a negative result even though the person tested actually is infected with COVID-19.

YOU DO NOT NEED AN APPOINTMENT TIME TO BE TESTED AND THE LAB WILL NOT CONTACT YOU AFTER YOU SIGN UP...just please show up at the Helix MDx Dental Testing Site in the Briarwood Mall parking lot adjacent to the old Sears location at light post marker #16 as outlined below. Dr. Griffith's office will contact you by phone with test results if positive. Please come to your appointment if you do not receive a call.
