OFFICE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

CoronaVirus (COVID-19) Update

 

At Elegant Smiles of Sea Girt, the health and well-being of our patients, employees, and community are our number one priority.  With the news of the rapidly spreading Corona Virus (COVID-19), we want to advise you of additional policies, above and beyond the CDC and WHO guidelines, we are taking to ensure the health and safety of everyone. 


Our office is CLOSED until further notice.  Dental emergencies will be accomodated by appointment only.  If you are experiencing intense pain and/or swelling, please call 732-701-7122.


Any patient or staff member who currently has -OR- had in the past 2 weeks any of the following symptoms are NOT PERMITTED to enter the office.  These symptoms include runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever or difficulty breathing.  Also, if a patient has traveled outside of the United States in the past 2 weeks or had known-contact with a carrier of COVID-19 virus, please do not enter the office. 


Our office is temporarily suspending cancellation/missed appointment  fees to patients experiencing the symptoms listed above who have to reschedule their appointments without 24 hour notice.


All patients must use hand sanitizer (provided by our office) prior to being seated in one of our operatories. 


Every patient’s temperature will be taken prior to being treated.  If a patient has a fever, they will be immediately sent home and advised to call their medical doctor.  That patient cannot schedule another appointment for at least 2 weeks unless they provide medical documentation demonstrating that they do not carry COVID-19 virus. 


All patients are required to rinse with hydrogen peroxide which kills the corona virus prior to any treatment. 


We follow the latest infection control guidelines and use "Universal Precautions" in our treatment rooms.  We use steam-heat sterilization for all our instruments; barrier sleeves and barrier tape is replaced between every patient.  Every inch of every dental chair, countertop, sink, button, knob, etc. is fully disinfected after every patient with approved chemical disinfection sprays and wipes. 


Masks, gloves, and eye protection are our standard attire in the treatment operatories.


We continue to focus on the utmost cleanliness of our reception and consultation areas and have increased our surface disinfection of reception area chairs, doorknobs, countertops, bathroom faucet handles, etc. throughout the day.  Magazines have been removed from the reception area and throughout the office.  We even removed every pen from the front desk with the exception of 1- which is disinfected after every patient finishes checking out after their appointment.


All toothbrushes and toothpaste located in the bathroom have been removed.  If a patient would like to brush their teeth prior to their appointment, they can request a toothbrush and toothpaste from the front desk.  A touch-less soap dispenser has been installed in the bathroom.


Brook 35 Park Condominium Association is disinfecting all common areas i.e. foyers, hallways, elevator, stairwells, etc. every night after all of the businesses have closed.


We ask that you do not bring anyone else with you to your scheduled appointment.  Only 1 parent/guardian is allowed into the office during their child’s appointment.  Please do not bring any siblings to your child’s appointment.


Thank you for taking the time to review our new guidelines.  Remember to wash your hands, do not touch your face, and stay healthy…

 

I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment-



Dr. W. Scott Steiner
