Important Information about Coronavirus COVID-19
Commonwealth Oral & Facial Surgery is committed to providing a safe environment for you, as well as all of our other patients and staff.
We are happy to announce our offices are open! The health and safety of our patients and our staff is our number one priority. With that in mind, we will be continuing all protective measures following the Center for Disease Control the American Dental Association, and the Virginia Dental Association guidelines for cleanliness, disinfection, and sterilization.
We have reconfigured our schedules to allow for more time for cleaning in-between patients. Social distancing, face masks, and hand washing are now, and for the foreseeable future, an integral part of our everyday lives.
We believe that with careful planning, social distancing in our waiting rooms, staggered appointment times, and thorough exam/procedure room cleaning between appointments, that it is once again safe to provide elective surgeries. We have also expanded our Teledentistry virtual appointment capabilities to allow patients to have consultations in the comfort of their homes and reducing visits to the office. Learn more about scheduling Teledentistry appointments here.
We are here for you and if you have concerns about any symptoms of COVID-19 (respiratory distress, fever, and shortness of breath), or recently traveled to an area where COVID-19 is known to be prevalent, please contact our office before coming in.
What to expect at your next appointment:
Please fill out your registration form and health history online prior to your visit.
We will miss seeing your smiling face but we ask that you bring a mask to wear while in our office. A mask will be provided upon arrival if you do not have one. We will ask a series of screening questions, provide hand sanitizer for you to use, and provide you with a pen that you can keep for filling out and signing forms throughout your visit.
When you arrive, you will be greeted at our door by one of our team members who will take your temperature, as well as the temperature of the parent/guardian that is accompanying minors. We will ask for a contact phone number and request that you remain in your vehicle until the room is ready. Only one pre-screened visitor can accompany the patient into the office. The visitor will be asked to wait in the car during the procedure.
Our staff will be wearing masks and appropriate PPE for all procedures. We have secured PPE supplies and done extensive training with our staff on the protocols for use of this equipment. The temperature of our staff is taken each morning and we have guidelines in place to ensure that anyone with flu-like symptoms, a fever, or any sickness, will be required to stay home.
