Engstrom Orthodontics response to Covid-19

Engstrom & Hamilton Orthodontics response to Covid-19
Posted on 04/30/2020

In these uncertain times Engstrom & Hamilton Orthodontics has taken a proactive approach to all things Covid-19 related and we would like to share some of the steps that we are taking to keep our patients and our staff safe.

Engstrom & Hamilton Orthodontics routinely follows OSHA safety guidelines with PPE and sterilization; however, in light of the current pandemic we have added additional safety measures that you will see in our office. Our safety measures begin before you ever enter the office, with a quick prescreen checklist for symptoms and exposure as we are personally confirming appointments.

Our new in office measures include:

  • NO TOUCH APPOINTMENTS…the doors are open, we check you in, there is nothing out to touch…except hand sanitizer (which is strongly encouraged)
  • We are asking everyone except the patient to wait in the car
  • There are no magazines in the waiting room
  • The waiting room has been re-arranged to allow for social distancing in case someone MUST come in.
  • We are taking temperatures before the patient goes into the clinic
  • Patients are rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash prior to their appointment
  • Our schedule has been modified so that there are no more than 2-3 patients in the clinic at a time, which allows for a minimum 9 foot distance between patients.
  • We have clearly designated points to stand and speak with the front desk personnel if the need arises.
  • We will be offering remote new patient exams free of charge

Dr Todd Engstrom, Dr. Phillip Hamilton and the team at Engstrom & Hamilton  Orthodontics will continue to do our part to keep our community healthy.
