Covid Safety Protocols


You and your child’s safety is our priority.

So what are we doing to keep you and the staff safe?

  • Air Filtration We have invested in new equipment and technology to meet and exceed the current CDC, ADA and OSHA recommendations. We have invested in the leading air filtration and purification systems for a healthcare setting. The IQAir Health Pro and the Medify Hospital Grade Air Purifiers are used to aggressively filter airborne viral particles to ensure the highest air quality throughout our facilities.
  • Pre-screening questions of patients. Please reschedule if you have any of the following:
  • If you have any fever or flu like symptoms
  • If you have traveled by airplane within 14 days
  • Contact with any positive or possible diagnosed COVID-19 person in the last 14 days
  • Universal masking in the office. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. You can choose to stay in your car and have us call you when we are ready to see your child. During this time, there may be less options of appointment times but we ask for your patience and understanding.
  • Please only one parent with the child to the appointment.
  • For older children, please wait downstairs or in your car in order to allow social distancing between families and staff.
  • Gloves, hand sanitizer and single use pens will be available for all patients. You are encouraged to bring your own pens.
  • Touchless temporal thermometer readings will be recorded when you enter. If you or your child has a temperature of 100 degrees F or higher, we will need to reschedule.
  • Staff’s temperature will be measured before working and must be below 100 degrees F to work.
  • N95 or KN95 masks will be worn by all the staff.
