Covid-19 Safety Protocol
First and foremost, we hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We are pleased to announce that we are open for dentistry following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA).
While the conservative, caring and straight-forward treatment that you’ve come to expect and deserve won’t change, we will be implementing changes outlined in this video.
We are also implementing a travel policy for staff and patients that postpones routine office visits for those who have visited recent COVID hotspots. Please see below for more info if you have traveled outside Wisconsin in the last 14 days. We invite you to call us if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your help and understanding.
Sandvick DDS Patient Travel Policy
If you have traveled outside of Wisconsin in the last 14 days and have visited a "hotspot", we will ask you to postpone any routine office visits for 14 days after returning to WI.
Hotspots are defined as the following:
A hotspot is a state that is in the top 15 of the United States for new cases in the past week, based on a 7-day rolling average per 100,000 residents. This will be determined once a week based on data from Johns Hopkins/Washington Post. This criteria identifies a state with a high density of new cases.
What this means:
Travel to one of these states, by any means of travel, OR travel through one of these states (connecting flights, driving routes etc). Both qualify as travel to a hotspot.
Any patient traveling to a hotspot as defined above will be asked to not enter the office until a period of 14 days has passed symptom free. The only exception to this policy would be an emergency as determined by one of the Sandvick DDS doctors.
Sandvick Travel Policy: 9/21/20
As of now, these are the hotspots:
1. North Dakota
2. South Dakota
13. Puerto Rico **NEW**
14. Idaho **NEW**
Removed from last week’s list: South Carolina & Georgia
