Covid Safety

Order of the Health Officer of the County of Santa Clara

In compliance with the Mandatory Directive on travel for Santa Clara County, we ask that any patients that have traveled, whether by air, car, train, or any other means, directly or indirectly from a point of origin greater than 150 miles from the County's borders, and have not completed their self-isolation quarantine to reschedule upcoming appointments. We thank you for your understanding and help to creating a safe environment.

Letter to our Patients addressing COVID 19 Protocols

Dear patients of Pediatric Dentistry of Los Altos, 

We are excited to welcome you back to our office! After 3 months of shelter in place we have now fully re-opened. Safety and health is of the upmost importance to us and we have always taken the necessary precautions to keep our patients safe. 

However, now with the current times we have implemented the guidelines from the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure the safety of our patients as well as our staff against COVID 19.
 
Please see below changes you will see at your child’s next appointment.

Pre-Screening Patients
o We screen all patients daily for fever and cough. We also ask that you fill out check in forms 24 hours prior to your child appointment. 
  
Social Distancing in Place
o Registration is temporarily located at the check in window on the front right side of the building.
o We have currently have reduced the amount of patients we are seeing and continuing to allot time in between each patient for disinfecting of all the clinical areas.
o Unless deemed essential by our doctors, no companions will be allowed back into the treatment rooms. We are trying to limit the number of people in the office at once. 
o Lobby and Restrooms are currently closed. 

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
o Our clinical staff will be utilizing extra PPE, such as face shields, gowns, head coverings etc. 
o As we strive to create the safest environment possible for you and your family, we will be billing your insurance for the additional PPE cost. Please note that out of network insurances will not cover this cost, so we have reduced it to $10 when it will be applied to our patients directly.

Other Precautions and Measures 
o Use of Anti-Microbial Rinses
o Installation of HEPA Filters & Air Purifiers with UV Lights 
o Use of Extra & Intra Oral suction 
o Requirement for all patients/ visitors to wear masks
o Contactless Payment made available with Apple Pay 

Thank you very much for understanding and your continued patronage.

Sincerely, 

Dr. Gorgani and Dr. Yee
