June 18th, 2021
Dear Patients and Families,
As of June 11th, 2021, we are pleased to invite *fully vaccinated patients to remove their masks once inside our suite!
Per building management, ALL patients and personnel, regardless of vaccination status, must continue to wear a mask into the building. Once inside of our suite, fully vaccinated persons may remove their masks upon verification of vaccination status.
*Fully vaccinated patients are asked to show proof of vaccination in accordance with Executive Order D 2021 103 Section D. *Fully vaccinated* means two (2) weeks after a second dose in a two dose-series of COVID-19 vaccine, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two (2) weeks after the single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
We must insist that those persons who have not yet chosen to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, or those who have not yet finished their COVID-19 vaccination series, please continue to wear a mask to all appointments (level 1 equivalent or higher). We are happy to provide a mask for you.
All patients, regardless of vaccination status, must wear masks in all communal areas outside of our suite.
This includes the restrooms and hallways within 6179 S. Balsam Way.
- Check-in Protocol for afternoon consultations and post-op appointments:
- Please arrive no earlier than 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment time in order to allow adequate time for check-in. You no longer need to call from the parking lot to announce your arrival for consultations or post-op appointments in the afternoon!
- Temperature screenings are no longer required in the hallway. Please let yourself into Reception and report to the front desk to announce your arrival. Please have your insurance cards, a form of ID, and your COVID vaccination card ready.
- Check-in Protocol for morning surgeries:
- At this time, we are still asking that patients checking in for surgery call us from the parking lot when you arrive. Please remain in your vehicle and call us at 303-933-8282 extension 0 to check in.
- Drivers are permitted to escort patients into the building to ensure the patient arrives safely to our office, but we will still request that all drivers remain in their vehicles while surgery is performed. Our surgical team will advise the driver when the patient is ready to be released from our care via phone. Please keep your mobile phone at the ready so that we can promptly reach you when the patient is ready to be discharged.
- No more than one (1) additional person is permitted to join the patient inside the office: In order to maintain a level of social distancing, we ask that patients come alone to their appointments; however, in the event where an accompanying parent/ guardian/ caretaker may be required, one (1) additional person may accompany the patient. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent to all appointments. The same check-in protocol will be implemented to all personnel entering the office.
- We ask that all patients please stop at the restroom located to the right of our suite and wash your hands thoroughly for 20 seconds prior to entrance.
Please note: If you have recently had a fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or any two (2) of the following symptoms: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, we will happily reschedule your appointment. The safety and health of our patients, team and community is our highest priority!
We thank you for your trust in us and greatly appreciate your compliance, patience and understanding through this time. Together we will all get through this.
Protocol may change over time and we will do our best to communicate such changes.
Dr. Daniel Esposito and Implant and Oral Surgery Center Team
