Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Return to Elective Care Pledge
Over the last eight weeks, the doctors and staff of Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery have worked tirelessly to provide a place for patients to receive safe emergency dental care. During this time, our community has been through a lot, and we all are looking forward to a time when we can resume our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. As we shift our focus back towards resuming elective care, we are emphasizing three areas: preparing, preventing, and protecting.
In order to continue to provide exceptional quality care, we have been diligently preparing our office and processes to keep our patients, staff, and providers safe. This will become evident from the initial phone call and in-office screening, physical changes in our office including social distancing in our waiting room, and virtual registration. Our staff will proudly direct you through this process to ease the transition.
Preventing the transmission of COVID-19 is critical to safe care. At Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we have implemented a universal masking policy. Please feel free to bring your own mask, however, we will happily provide you with one prior to entering our building. Also, in order to reduce potential contact, we will be limiting visitors to patients receiving care, one guardian of a minor, or one individual providing care to a person with a disability. Also, we are happy to provide virtual consultations.
Protecting our patients is our top priority and infection control is the most effective tool in accomplishing this goal. At Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we have always been committed to exceeding the highest standard of infection control so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere or exceed to each agencies’ recommendations. You will notice enhanced cleaning measures including repeatedly wiping all common surfaces, whole office deep cleaning with hospital grade products, enhanced personal protective equipment, and medical grade HEPA filters in all of our procedure rooms.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. For more information or to make an appointment, please call our office at 708-448-8670 or visit our website at www.midwestomspalos.com. Thank you for trusting us to provide you with safe care. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to seeing you again.
