Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions… As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control. We follow all Standard precautions set by ADA, OSHA, FDOH, CDC, to keep our patients and employees safe. For instance, wearing personal protective equipment per patients like face shields, level 3 face masks, using high-standards disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials. In our office, we have HIPA air purifier, to ensure clean air and reducing the aerosol in the office by using high speed suction.
We decreased our volume of patients per day, to make sure patients do not have to wait for us in the lobby. Patients wait in their cars until we are ready to receive them. Then we take body temperature with a laser Thermometer. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household, has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
