Welcome! Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, families, staff, and the surrounding community. Although Douglas County is at stage 2, “SAFER-AT-HOME”, we are abiding by the social distancing whenever possible in the office.
We have increased our infection control in the office to be compliant per the CDC and ADA guidelines to PROTECT YOU due to the Coronavirus. The virus is an airborne pathogen. We have increased times of our appointments, stagger patient appointments when possible, staff’s temperatures are taken daily, use of heavy-duty masks, face shields, and change of lab coats for every patient having procedures done. In addition, a plexiglass barrier has been placed at the front and side desks, provide hand sanitizer, reconfigured the waiting room to allow 6 feet between chairs, and have air purifiers in the waiting room and all the operatories. Our office has been disinfected during our time away.
CHANGES TO OUR OFFICE PROTOCOLS: Every patient will be screened by phone prior to and at check in with questions such as “do you have a cough or fever? Have you traveled outside the U.S.,” etc. (A copy of those questions is under the tab “Download Pre-appt Screening” on our website. You will have your temperature taken. If it registers 100.5*F or higher, you will be immediately excused from your appointment. You need to follow up with your physician and she/he will recommend treatment as needed. We will contact you in a couple weeks by phone to follow up. If someone is driving you to the appointment, their temperature will be taken also. If possible, we ask the other person stays in their car while the patient is being treated. We will text you when to return for pickup. WEAR YOUR MASK TO THE OFFICE. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER WITHOUT ONE. IF YOU COME WITHOUT A MASK, YOU WILL HAVE TO CALL OUR OFFICE TO RESCHEDULE. Our front office will also wear masks. We are not providing masks due to short supply.
HIGH RISK PATIENTS: Recommended to wait at least 2 - 4 months for “non-emergent” treatment. Certain patients are at high risk of getting seriously ill during this time. The CDC recommends patients over 65 yrs. old, living in a nursing home or long-term care facility, chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma having to take medications regularly, heart conditions, undergoing cancer treatment, smokers (cigarettes, marijuana, etc.), bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, prolonged use of steroids (i.e. Prednisone taken regularly for 2 yrs.), other immune weakening medications, severe obesity, liver disease, diabetics, and chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis. People of all ages with underlying medical conditions particularly if not well-controlled. The CDC recommends these patients to postpone “non-emergency treatment” (dental cleanings, etc.) for at least 2 months after the “Safer-at-home” stage has re-opened. If you have any of these conditions, please ask your physician for advice and use your own judgment to choose to come in or not.
We appreciate your willingness to allow us to do our part to ensure the safety for all of you.
