Safety Precautions

We are open for all oral surgical care.

We appreciate your patience throughout the coronavirus crisis as we’ve had to adjust the care we were able to provide. With restrictions now lifted, we have resumed all oral surgical care and can get back to caring for you and your smile!

It’s understandable to wonder whether it’s safe to visit an oral surgeon during the coronavirus crisis. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to ensure your visit is safe. While we had to temporarily close some practices during the pandemic, we continued to operate at others in order to provide emergency oral surgical care to those in need. Our teams are well-equipped and experienced in keeping our practices safe. In fact, we’ve had no known exposures or positive COVID-19 cases at this time.

How We’re Keeping You Safe

We have always followed standard protocols issued by the CDC, ADA and AAOMS to help protect our patients and team members from communicable diseases like the coronavirus. 

In addition, we implemented the following measures and screening procedures to ensure your health and safety:


  • All staff and doctors will wear full PPE prior to interacting with patients
  • Gowns, ASTM 3 or KN95 masks with face shield, and surgical caps will be worn during all procedures.
  • Acrylic barriers are in place at the front desk to help protect patients and staff. Please stand directly in front of the barrier.


  • All team members wash hands frequently. 
  • Food items, magazines, books, toys and other clutter have been removed from common and clinical areas.
  • Countertops, door knobs, tables, chairs and other common surfaces are wiped down often.


  • Patients are asked to wait in their car as opposed to entering the welcome area. 
  • Visitors are limited to patients and, if necessary, one parent, guardian or translator.
  • We ask that all patients wear some type of face mask when entering the building. 
  • The following health and safety screening is conducted prior to every patient appointment:
    • Have you been sick in the past 3 weeks?
    • Have you had close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms?
  • Frequent  temperature checks are conducted: 
    • All patients’ temperatures are taken upon arrival.
    • All team members’ temperatures are taken daily.
    • Sick team members remain at home.
  • Team members maintain a 6-foot distance from each other.

While we are doing everything we can to ensure your safety, we also ask for your cooperation in keeping our practices safe. If you have a fever or are experiencing any symptoms of a communicable disease or have had contact with someone who has, please reschedule your appointment.
