COVID-19 Related Information
Dear Patients, Visitors, Family & Friends,
Though we are taking extreme precautions to mitigate any risks of the pandemic caused by COVID-19 for our patients and staff, we have still received many questions and wished to proactively address how we are responding:
- As of this writing, we are still open for business for emergency procedures
- We have implemented the CDC guidelines of ‘social distancing’ and zero-touch in-person meetings.
- Business personnel have been busy with extra cleanings of the office and other high-touch areas.
- We will immediately implement any new CDC guidelines as the pandemic unfolds.
There are simple things the CDC recommend you do to help keep yourself and others healthy while visiting our location:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
We will request that if you have a cold, temperature, or have been exposed to COVID-19, please cancel your appointment.
We will be following all the appropriate CDC protocols as mentioned in our update on March 27th below, but we are also putting in the following extra precautions for the safety of our patients and staff:
- Enhanced cleaning measures above OSHA recommendations
- Plexiglass barriers in the reception area
- Air sterilization techniques
- Medical grade air purifiers in office
- All team members wearing appropriate PPE, including masks, gowns, caps, gloves, goggles, and face shields
- Aerosol elimination systems for aerosol producing therapies
- Abiding by all social distancing and CDC recommendations
We look forward to continuing to serve our community and anyone with oral and maxillofacial surgery needs.
March 27th, 2020 UPDATE
As you know we consistently wear masks and gloves during treatment, plus we disinfect surfaces and sterilize equipment between patients. Those normal universal precautions, as well as a number of extra ones, as recommended by the CDC and ADA, have been implemented and are in place to keep you and our team safe.
