Dear Valued Patients, we will be doing our best to keep our doors open during these cautious times and plan to keep all scheduled appointments.
We care deeply about your health and well being. We have been closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC as well as the American Dental Association.
Due to these recommendations, we ask that If you have flu or cold-like symptoms such as a cough or fever, newly developed shortness of breath, or if you have recently traveled to an area outside the US with known Coronavirus (COVID-19) or been in contact with someone who has traveled or contracted the virus, please call us at 843-986-0177 to reschedule your appointment.
While our staff follows strict infection control guidelines at Lowcountry Family Dentistry, we wanted to make sure every possible measure was taken to ensure your well being.
After a review of our protocols, we will:
- Remove all magazines and books from the lobby and operatories.
- Sterilize all hard surfaces throughout the entire office with medical grade sanitation wipes multiple times throughout the day. This includes, but is not limited to countertops, chairs, door handles, and faucet handles.
- Post signs at entrances with instructions to patients with symptoms of respiratory infection to return home, call the office, and reschedule their appointment.
- Make lobby coffee machine unavailable to patients.
Our goal is to provide all our patients with a safe environment to receive dental care. While, rescheduling may inconvenience both our patient’s and our office, we do believe these simple protocols will help ensure everyone’s safety.
