Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Dear patients and members of our community,
Sexton Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery would like to update you about COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its impact on our practice. We would like our patients to know about some of our safety policies in light of the current events. First and foremost, as healthcare providers and the fact that we are a surgery center, Sexton Oral Surgery has always followed the infection prevention and control guidelines as directed by the highest standards of OSHA and the CDC. The use of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves has always been a standard practice here. All equipment is sterilized after each patient encounter and sterilization equipment is monitored daily. All consultation and surgical rooms are disinfected after each patient encounter. In addition, all high-touch surfaces at our offices, such as doorknobs, phones, and computers, are frequently disinfected. We also utilize the latest air-filtration technology throughout the office including each consult and surgery room.
We have also implemented some new policies to further protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. When you enter, your temperature will be checked, and a screening questionnaire performed. In addition, we ask that you bring only one additional family member with you to your appointment and that he or she wait for you in your vehicle during your appointment. This will help reduce the flow of patients through the office and minimize contact with others.
Finally, if you or someone in your household is experiencing cough, fever, difficulty breathing, or other flu-like symptoms, please call us to reschedule your appointment.
Please know that the safety of our patients and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Thank you for your understanding,
Drs. Sexton and Weiskopf
