Announcement from Dr. Ellis Wong
The office is open:
As the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives, we have been faced with questions about how to handle safely routine appointments. While the Stay at Home mandate was initiated, as many of you know, Dr Wong closed his office. During the time in which the office was closed, Dr Wong kept up with the most current information that was available at that time. With the available information and conversing with other Dentists, Dr Wong felt very comfortable opening with new procedures and policies in place to protect his staff and his patients. Your health and safety are a priority of ours; we take this very seriously.
Dr. Wong has received his second COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine on January 13th. Our entire staff is now vaccinated. Our office is mask mandated; no one should enter our building without wearing a mask and all of our staff are required to wear a mask at all times. You will keep the mask on at all times except when instructed by staff during procedures. This will ensure minimal exposure to aerosols that are released into the air during dental procedures. Dr Wong has also purchased air purifiers and extra-oral suctions for each operatory; they filter the air and vacuum any aerosols you release during your appointment. Staff regularly disinfect all surfaces like door handles and counter tops to eliminate cross contamination. As an office, we have all agreed to get tested every week and practice social distancing while not in the office.
We have begun scheduling patients again; it is imperative that you let us know whether you are experiencing any symptoms such as coughing, fever, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, or difficulty breathing, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 before you schedule your appointment. When it is time for your appointment, it is very important to arrive ALONE and at your appointed time. We cannot accommodate more than one patient in the lobby. Dr Wong has organized his schedule so that everyone remains 6 feet apart and to avoid having too many patients in a hallway or lobby.
We are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff; please have patience and understanding during these times. We understand change can be difficult but the quality of service and care we provide has not changed.
