We understand the concern surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) and the uncertainty of the situation as it is changing daily.
Palmetto Kids Dentistry will continue to operate on a normal schedule at this time. We will continue to treat patients that are showing no symptoms of the COVID-19 virus.
We will be enacting some new policies to protect our families and staff at this time. No staff will be allowed to work if they are exhibiting any symptoms and they will be screened each morning. We also request that no patient come to an appointment exhibiting any symptoms of the virus. There will be no fee to reschedule an appointment.
We will be screening each child and any family member that comes into the office. Please be prepared to answer these questions and have your temperature checked upon entering our office. We are limiting the number of guardians/parents allowed to accompany child in the back to one. We are also allowing patients to remain in their vehicle after check in and we will text you when we are ready to take you and your child back.
Finally, we will have hand sanitizer available in all areas as needed. We are taking the extra measures to keep our offices sanitized and are adhering to ADA guidelines. We have eliminated all toys, etc from the waiting area until further notice to prevent the spread of any germs including COVID-19. It is standard protocol for us to sanitize all surfaces of our patient rooms with medical grade cleaner before and after all patients.
Our thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone during this difficult time. If you have any questions or need to reschedule, please feel free to call us at 843-284-6497.
