We here at the office of Simmonds, Brady & Loi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Implant Specialists, PC (SBL Oral Surgery) want to address the recent concerns over the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
The health and well-being of our patients, parents, children, and staff remain our top priority.
SBL Oral Surgery would like you to know what we are doing, in an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible. We are asking any of our patients and escorts who display symptoms of the virus (fever, shortness of breath, cough), patients and escorts who have come into contact in the last 14 days with someone who has been confirmed to have the virus, or those patients who do not feel well to re-schedule their appointments. This policy also applies to our staff.
We are continuing to practice Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) standards regarding sterilization/infection control but have also increased our protocol to include consistent disinfection of all surfaces involved in human contact. These surfaces include (but are not limited to) countertops, desktops, computer keyboards, door knobs, light switches, phones, waiting room chairs…etc.
All patients must call our office from the parking lot prior to entering. When entering the building, all patients must be wearing a mask and need to utilize the hand sanitizer located in the waiting room.
In the meantime, we ask that you continue to practice excellent oral hygiene, get plenty of rest, maintain a healthy diet, practice social distancing, and wash those hands!
Thank you for your patience during this challenging time.
