To ensure our staff and patients enter without problematic symptoms, we’ve added a screening procedure here at Regents Dental. As you enter the office, you will be asked questions regarding travel, exposure, and potential symptoms, as well as have your temperature taken with our contactless digital thermometer. A temperature must read under 100 degrees, following all CDC, ADA, and OSHA guidelines, to proceed to work, or have treatment. We ask all patients to please wear a mask both entering and exiting our office for the time being.
We have invested in a few advanced pieces of technology to ensure the safety of our staff and patients. HEPA Air Purifiers provide the highest levels of particle filtration of any air purifier technology. Using a HEPA filter, HEPA filters, or High Efficiency Particulate Air, consist of tightly woven fibers that can capture microscopic airborne particles and are rated to remove up to 99.97% of particles, 0.3 microns and larger that are created by any aerosols in the dental office. In other words: this will keep our air clean and sterile during your time with us, providing a safe environment for you or your loved ones. We are proud to have several HEPA filters throughout our office!
For the health and safety of everyone who enters the office, our team will be fully equipped with face shields, gowns, protective gloves, masks, and more PPE. During our time away from normal routine hours, our staff has received advanced training on the correct way to implement these pieces, as a means to insure your safety. We are very proud to provide the very safest of environments for our patients and staff.
Self Quarantining Questions:
During this strange time, we all need to be extremely careful with how we approach what would be normal social interactions. Here at Regents Dental Group, Dr. Eskeland and Dr Lockwood and the entire staff have gone to extreme measures to ensure the safety of our emergency patients, community and team members. With that being said, there are still certain things which will require our patients to practice self-quarantine. Before calling the schedule an appointment, please be sure to ask yourself the following self quarantine questions:
1) Do you have a cough?
2) Do you have a body temperature of 100.4 degrees?
3) Have you recently noticed less taste or smell to foods?
4) Do you have difficulty breathing?
5) Have you traveled outside San Diego in the last month?
6) Do you have flu-like symptoms such as muscle aches, weakness, congestion or headache?
7) Have you come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19?
Thank you for taking these precautions - anyone who answers yes to any of the above, should continue to self quarantine! We strive to protect you and others from transmitting the coronavirus. Stay safe everyone!
WELCOME to Regents Dental Group! We pride ourselves on maintaining a healthy environment for our patients and staff.
If you are experiencing a fever, productive cough, or have traveled within the last 2 weeks, please advise our staff prior to scheduling.
The following is information directly from the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROLL(CDC):
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP IN KEEPING OUR ENVIRONMENT SAFE FOR YOU AND OUR STAFF……
