Senior and High-Risk Patient Hours 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays

Over the next few weeks, we will slowly start to reopen our practice. As most of you know, most dental problems get worse overtime, and we want to treat dental issues before they become bigger problems. We want to ensure our patients that we are taking COVID-19 (and all infectious diseases) seriously and are adding extra precautions to protect you and our team.

We are offering special hours and accommodations for our senior and high-risk patients:

  1. Special hours: We are reserving 9 AM – 11 AM on Mondays and Thursdays for our seniors and high-risk patients.
  2. Mobile check-in: There will be no need for you to come into the waiting area. When you arrive, text 843-779-9096 or call 843-203-5429 to let us know that you are here. We will come to your car, bring you in the side door, and take you directly into a treatment room.
  3. First in room: You will be the first patient using the treatment room in at least 36 hours, since we are not normally open on the weekends or Wednesdays.
  4. Paperwork: Any paperwork that you need to complete will be sent to you via email or text so that you can complete it on your own device. We will also allow you to complete the paperwork in the treatment room using paper or a disinfected iPad.
5.
  5. Mask: If you do not have a mask, one will be given to you to enter and exit the office. Our team will keep masks on when we are within 6 feet of you. Since we will be wearing masks, please forgive us if it makes communication harder and please know that we are still smiling underneath.
  6. Closed rooms: Each of our treatment rooms are closed with walls and doors and have their own air return vent. Closed rooms are very effective at keeping potential diseases from spreading from room-to-room.
  7. Check-out: The check-out process will be performed in the treatment rooms. After you are finished, you will leave the office through the side door and avoid the waiting area.
  8. Additional screenings: We will be screening all patients and team members for travel, symptoms associated with COVID-19, and contact with anyone showing symptoms associated with COVID-19 or contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case. The temperatures of all patients and team members will be recorded.
  9. Mouth rinse: All patients will use a mouth rinse to destroy viruses and kill bacteria before treatment.
  10. Limit office traffic: We will require all non-essential families/friends to stay at home or wait in their vehicles during appointments.
  11. Infection control: We will continue our normal practice of following universal precautions, as we always do. This means after every patient, the room will be disinfected with chemicals that have been shown to be effective against the coronavirus in 30 seconds (Optim1), the instruments will be sterilized, and our team will continue to wear appropriate protective equipment such as mask and gloves.
  12. Addition cleaning: More frequent sanitation processes for the reception area and bathrooms.
  13. Suctions: As many of you know, we have always used special suctions. Not only do these suctions isolate the area being worked on and protect patient, they also prevent the spread of disease.
  14. Clean air: We have added additional air purification systems to our office.
  15. Stono Dental Care is taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our patients and team. Thank you for your patience and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

    Take care,
    
Andy Game, DMD, MBA
