New England Oral Surgery Associates
To Our Patients, Referrals, and Local Hospital Emergency Room Providers:
OUR SURGERY OFFICES ARE OPEN:
We are currently open to care for our patients, and to handle ALL surgery needs.
Due to the nature of our Oral&Maxillofacial Surgery practice, many patients require urgent care due to pain, swelling, and trauma. Many of these are pediatric patients that otherwise would seek care at the local emergency rooms. Oral&Maxillofacial Surgeons are the last line of care before a hospital visit is required for typical dental/jaw/face emergencies. We must be available. Our entire team has taken precautionary standards and procedures to the highest levels to ensure the well-being of our patients during this pandemic. We are taking extraordinary measures to disinfect the common areas in our office. Frequently touched surfaces are being disinfected regularly. These common touch points include all counter tops, patient check-in areas, door handles, bathrooms and of course treatment/examination rooms.
We are a surgical practice with extensive experience with infection control and safety for our patients and staff.
It is very appropriate to wear a mask as you enter our office. Please do not wear gloves in our office. These are not protective, and actually will increase the spread of germs to both yourself and others.
We ask that patients come to the office alone (without family members). Pediatric patients should come to the office with one parent and no siblings. Anyone that is accompanying you to our office should stay/wait in the car.
Many follow-up/post-surgery visits and clinical questions can be handled over the phone (even with FaceTime).
Our office is following all strict guidelines/recommendations from the CDC and the Massachusetts Dept of Health with respect to questions asked and travel history.
Our staff is here to help in any way possible. Please call with any concerns or questions.
WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO RESUMING A NORMAL WAY OF LIFE.
In Good Health,
