COVID-19 ALERT: A MESSAGE FROM YOUR DENTAL TEAM
Due to confirmed cases of COIVD-19 within the community, the Dental Clinic has been advised to cancel all scheduled appointments August 10-13 unless it is for an emergency. All patients will be contacted via our patient notification system. If you have any questions regarding your scheduled appointment, please call (360) 466-3900. It is our top priority to keep our patients and staff safe. If you experience a dental emergency, please call us so you can be triaged over the phone first. Our waiting room remains closed during this time.
Thank you for understanding,
Your Swinomish Dental Team
» The health of our patients and team is our top priority. If you or anyone you have come in contact has been sick in the past two weeks, please reschedule.
» Please call (360) 466.3900 or text our office from your vehicle upon arriving for your appointment. We will have a team member greet you at the front door when it is time for you to come in for your appointment.
» When entering the clinic, please wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer we have available.
» Everyone that visits our office will be asked a quick set of COVID-19 related screening questions and we will check your temperature. Patients with answers that indicate symptoms or recent exposure to COVID-19 will need to be rescheduled at an appropriate future date and time. The same screening will be completed on each Swinomish Dental Clinic team member on a daily basis.
» We have a policy in place limiting visitors. One parent or guardian may accompany a child for appointments. Please bring your own mask to wear while in the office. Please have other family members or friends wait outside or in the car. We appreciate your understanding.
» We will continue following all of the WISHA disinfection and sterilization guidelines. In addition, we will frequently disinfect common areas, door handles, and shared items.
» Social distancing guidelines will be maintained in the office. All treatment chairs are positioned at least 6-feet apart. Our waiting room will remain closed.
We truly appreciate your understanding with the new changes in the office. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about our new changes and we will try to accommodate you.
