Coronavirus Update in Oceanside, CA

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to announce that we will resume all services in our office on Monday May 18th! Thank you for your patience as we have complied with state and local mandates and guidelines for the last 8 weeks. We look forward to resuming preventative and routine care. As we get back to business “as usual”, there will be a few things that are “unusual” for a while. Safety for everyone is our highest priority. Consequently you will see some new policies and practices when you return.

  1. We have reduced the number of seats available in our waiting room. While we have always strived to value your time, we will now make an extra effort to make sure the number of people in our waiting room is limited. In return, we ask that you minimize the number of people accompanying you at your visit. If you don’t want to spend any time in our waiting room, just call us when you arrive in the parking lot, and we will call you back when your room is ready!
  2. Before entering the office we ask that you wash your hands thoroughly and wear a mask or cloth face covering. The hand sanitizer available in the reception area is not a substitute for hand washing, but a bonus!
  3. After entering the office we will take your temperature with a touch-less thermometer and ask you a few health screening questions. If you happen to be running a little warm, or answer yes to any of the questions, we will likely ask you to come back another time.

In addition to these precautions, our staff members will be using enhanced protective gear and equipment, all in our effort to minimize the potential spread of infection.

Over the next few weeks we will be in touch with patients who had to postpone preventative and routine visits to reschedule those appointments. Thank you for your patience while we work through this process. Please note that we understand that everyone’s level of comfort is different, so if you are not comfortable with a current appointment and want to put it off a little longer, we are happy to accommodate you.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

All of us at Surfside Dental
