Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Dr. Epstein and Keegan are pleased we are now seeing patients for elective routine oral surgery as well as emergency care. We are taking a variety of extra precautions to keep you safe.
We are limiting the number of patients and escorts in the office. We are essentially keeping our waiting room, “no waiting.” When you arrive, please call our office to receive instructions as to when to come in. Patients and their escort, if applicable, are asked to wear nose and mouth covering when in the office. Some patients may be requested to have Covid-19 testing prior to their surgery, in accordance with best practices.
We are screening ourselves and staff every day for Covid-19 symptoms and are using the latest proven techniques and procedures for cleaning and wearing protective equipment in order to minimize any disease transmission. We are doing everything we can to make your experience as safe and comfortable as possible.
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 by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. 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.
