We recognize the trust you place in us when visiting the practice and want to share with you the actions we are taking at SF Oral Surgery to keep you and our team safe with the current threat of COVID-19.
As an oral surgical practice, we adhere to strict hygiene protocols in our common areas and our standard sterile protocols in our surgical suites as part of our daily practice. We have also implemented enhanced cleaning measures to ensure we’re taking the appropriate precautions to safely see you in the office
Our office remains open for EMERGENCY patients only.
Our practice is temporarily modifying our appointment hours to maximize social distancing, as recommended by the CDC. The American Dental Association and California Dental Association have released an urgent recommendation to suspend all non-essential & non-emergency dental visits for at least three weeks. Please see current CDA updates & recommendations here: https://www.cda.org/Home/News-and-Events/COVID-19-Coronavirus-Updates
The CDC has recently updated new prevention guidelines to help protect yourself and your community!
Existing appointments of a non-emergency nature scheduled within the next two weeks will be moved to a different day/time to ensure public safety.
While there have been no reported cases of exposure to COVID-19 at the practice, the best way to avoid catching COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
WHAT WE’RE DOING TO LIMIT EXPOSURE:
- Practicing social distancing by decreasing the number of available daily appointments to strictly emergency patients.
- Decreasing our in-office staffing levels and providing work-from-home alternatives.
- Providing hand sanitizer in all areas of the office, and repeatedly disinfecting all flat surfaces, doors, handles, etc.
- Increasing the frequency of professional office deep cleaning.
- Opening office windows to promote ventilation.
- Temporarily reducing hugs and handshakes. ☹️
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Contact us to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, nasal congestion, and/or body aches. Please do not be concerned with canceling or rescheduling less than 48 hours prior to your appointment. Considering these events, we will NOT be implementing any penalties for last-minute rescheduling.
- If you have traveled internationally, wait AT LEAST two weeks before your next appointment.
- Practice common safety measures, including frequent hand washing, covering your nose and mouth with a tissue if you sneeze or cough, and staying home if you are sick.
- Drive to our office rather than take public transportation.
- Exercise patience with any scheduling inconveniences. We are implementing these precautionary changes keeping safety at the forefront.
We encourage everyone to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
