With the coronavirus outbreak, COVID-19, we’ve added unprecedented precautionary measures and more safety precautions that is required of us because the health and safety of our team and patients are our first priority.
In addition to us practicing Universal Precautions,
(1) Pre-Appointment phone calls:
- We are no longer taking walk-in Patients. Instead, a Patient must call or text ahead of time to make a dental appointment.
- If a Patient has a fever, coughing, sneezing or malaise, they are rescheduled after 2 weeks. (Difficult to turn away Patients with fever and malaise because tooth infections can cause these symptoms as well. This will be Ca 94608 a case by case basis and be determined by our Doctor.)
- If a Patient has traveled out of state or traveled outside the 9 Bay Area counties, they are rescheduled after 2 weeks.
- Communications with our Patients are by phone or text.
(2) Arrival at the Office (Front Desk area)

- All “hot spots” are disinfected wiped clean before and after Patient leaves our office.
- All general areas are being sterilized / disinfected fogged with hypochloric acid (non-chemical de-iodize saltwater fog) all throughout the day
