COVID-19 Update

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.

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.

In healthcare settings, 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, and thorough exam/procedure room cleaning between appointments, that it is once again safe to provide elective surgeries.

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, please come into the office to be checked in. 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. We have guidelines in place to ensure that anyone with flu-like symptoms, a fever, or any sickness, will be required to stay home.
