Safety Protocols

Learn more about how we minimize the spread of infection and the risk of COVID-19 transmission

With new guidance from the CDC and MO Heath Department, our office is changing our “normal” routines to do our part in minimizing patients' risk.

We will start slow to make sure we all have these new routines down. These guidelines and protocols are ever-changing and we are doing our best to stay on top of them to keep everyone safe. We apologize for any inconveniences this has caused everyone.

Thank you so much from all of us at Festus Smile Center for being understanding and flexible in these interesting times!

Infection Control Protocols

  • Patients will call when they arrive for their appointments and wait in their cars until we are ready to see them.

  • Only those with appointments may enter the office, except certain circumstances.

  • Upon entry, patients temperature will be taken and certain questions will be asked regarding any possible symptoms/exposure of COVID-19.

  • We will have limited patients in the office at one time and will also limit patient-patient overlap.

  • We will be wearing extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to minimize transmission and protect both patients and our team.
