IMPORTANT NEWS - August 24th, 2020

Dear Dental Office,

As we all have found ourselves living and working in the “new normal,” we continually strive to make our service more streamlined to assure continued high quality service and competitive pricing.

To continue full compliance with the current DOT and CDC guidelines, we will be changing our pickup policy at all offices, effective September 8th, 2020.

1. Starting September 8th, 2020, all requests for same-day-pickups must be place before 10:00 AM that day. Any requests placed after 10:00 AM will be serviced the next business day (with the exception of pickups on delivery; when a driver is at your office making a delivery he will also be able to make the pickup automatically).

2. To minimize contact, we ask that all offices have the pick up (box or bag) completely sealed and ready for pickup. The package must be sealed and labeled clearly stating which lab it is going to.

3. Optionally, to further minimize contact and create as little disruption to your employees as possible, we would like to set up a designated place to facilitate the package exchange.

Starting September 8th, 2020, we will offer placement of lock boxes located at the front or back door of your office. Please contact Green Light Express for pricing and availability.

Thank you for your help in making the pick-up and drop off process mutually safer, more efficient and less disruptive to your employees and clients.
