PATIENT SAFETY PROTOCOL
At Vaca & Kirby Dental/SLEEPwell Longview the health, safety and well-being of our patients and staff are our top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experience surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients as the situation evolves.
We are taking additional precautions given by the CDC in regards to sanitation and standard disease control to provide a safe environment for you.
In light of COVID-19, our doors are only open for emergency dental patients,
and have suspended any non life threatening emergency patients until April 21st, as recommended by the Texas Dental Association. Our top priority is your
safety and taking all measures to meet your needs.
This page will be updated with any schedule changes and further updates.
To further safeguard our patients and community, here are our safety protocol measures:
- If you are feeling ill, are experiencing any of these symptoms or have in the last 48 hours (fever, cough, sneezing, shortness of breath) we will reschedule your dental appointment and advise you to contact your physician.
- Please call to reschedule your appointment if you have traveled outside the United States in the last two weeks to an area affected by COVID-19. This includes: China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Lorea, Taiwan, Thailand or Vietnam.
- We’ve increased our sanitation measures including all clinical staff wearing dental masks (which offer extremely high levels of protection against the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses), and we have included additional sanitation rounds throughout the office. This includes "double wiping" treatment areas and common countertops, doors, and restrooms after each patient.
Our phones are open and ready to answer any questions or concerns you have.
Thank you for being our patient and trusting us to be your dental and sleep providers.
Stay safe, stay warm, and stay healthy!
