Green Lake Oral and Facial Surgery has always prioritized our patient and employee safety with the highest regard. We will continue to follow guidelines issued by OSHA, CDC, Washington State Board of Health, and the ADA to protect the health of our patients and team. Extensive sanitizing protocols after each use of treatment surfaces will continue.
Prior to the start of your appointment, we ask you to complete the COVID screening included in your new patient registration packet or you will be given the form upon arrival. When you arrive at the appointment, there is a desk with hand sanitizer and masks if you are not already wearing a face covering. We ask you to please use hand sanitizer and mask yourself before entering the office. The front desk will also be taking your temperature.
Green Lake Oral and Facial Surgery kindly asks that only the patient comes to the appointment unless an escort is required for surgery or due to the patient being a minor. If an escort is required, we ask that there is only one per patient. Our waiting area will be utilized as a foyer and escorts or parents have the opportunity to walk across the street and enjoy Green Lake. We will text or call parents/escorts when it is time to return. Our staff will continue to sterilize all areas and items between every single patient, including all door handles, pens, counters, etc. As a staff, we are utilizing face shields, hair coverings, and N95 respirators and all required PPE protocols. We are fully stocked with PPE to treat our patients safely. We enhanced the filters on our HVAC systems as well as placed medical grade air filters in each of our treatment rooms.
Green Lake Oral and Facial Surgery is happy to answer any further questions you may have in regards to COVID and what the office is doing to protect patients and employees alike. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office with any additional questions.
Green Lake Oral and Facial Surgery team is fully vaccinated from COVID-19. The vaccine is effective and we are so grateful to science and for the privilege of getting the vaccine. In celebrating receiving the vaccine, we also take time to remember all the lives that were lost. We can’t thank all the nurses, volunteers, and staff enough for making this possible for us and for everyone.”
