Special Covid-19 Changes In Our Office
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we all have to adjust to a “new normal”. Sometimes changes happen for a good reason. We are doing the best we can in the office to ensure the safety of our patients, staff, the doctors and all the families we have to return to at the end of the day. You will notice these additional safety measures in our office on top of our OSHA-abiding procedure room standards:
– Personal protection equipment (PPE) which is FDA approved masks, face shields, gloves, scrubs, disposable isolation gowns, hair and shoe covers.
– High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters with UV light and ionic air purifiers are installed into our state of the art surgical rooms.
– Adequate scheduling to minimize contact between each patient.
– Proper physical distancing for those in the waiting room (no more than 2 patients allowed to wait in the room and no more than 1 escort per IV sedation patient, minors, or elderly).
– Sneeze guard plexiglass shield installed at the welcome/front desk.
– Every patient and escort will receive a temperature check upon entering the office. Anyone with a fever over 100F will not be permitted to enter the office. We will redirect you to the nearest hospital for care.
– Every patient will have to fill out a questionnaire regarding recent sick contacts, or symptoms of Covid-19, and sign a waiver that there is always possible unknown risk when visiting a medical office such as ours.
We thank you for your support and trust in our office. We aim to do the best we can to deliver the best medical/dental care possible. If you have any questions regarding our office, please feel free to contact us.
