Coronavirus COVID-19 Safety Updates

At Dr. Stratford-Jones’ dental office, the safety and well-being of our patients continues to be our primary concern. In an effort to safeguard the health of our dental patients and staff as the COVID-19 coronavirus situation continues to evolve, our dental practice is taking the following steps to ensure that Dr. Stratford-Jones’ dental office remains a safe, trusted place for our patients to receive dental care.

  • We will continue to see patients if they are not showing symptoms such as fever, persistent coughing, or shortness of breath.
  • Patient Screening: Upon arrival, we’ll be conducting forehead thermometer temperature checks on everyone prior to entering the office.  Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher, will be rescheduled.
  • Patients Only:will be permitted into the office with the exception of our younger patients. In those cases, we’ll allow only one (1) parent or childcare provider to enter with the patient
  • Modified Check-In Process: We will send any paperwork needed prior to your appointment and ask that you please complete it prior to your visit.
  • After Check-In: We request that patients wait in their vehicles in order to limit the number of people in the office at any given time. You’ll receive a call or text when Dr. Stratford-Jones and staff is ready to see you
  • Sanitizing & Disinfecting –all public spaces, including treatment rooms, restrooms, and waiting-rooms are being sanitized with Medical-Grade Disinfectant sprays after every patient is seen (per CDC guidelines), including high touch areas such as chairs, counters, and equipment.
  • Protective Barriers– placed on items such as armrests, curing lights, overhead lights, computer keyboards, and suction tips.
  • Sterile Instruments– dental instruments are sterilized after every patient. CDC protocols are strictly adhered to in assuring proper sterilization of dental instruments.
  • Staff Screening: No staff with a temperature of 100.4 or higher, or showing symptoms such as coughing, sneezing or trouble breathing, will be permitted in the practice. In addition, any staff member that has traveled to a CDC Level 2 or 3 region will be required to self-quarantine before returning to work, although we are highly recommending team members not travel at this time.
