Stormberg Orthodontics Welcome Back Video 2020

May 11, 2020

Welcome Back!  Stormberg Orthodontics will officially reopen very soon and we want to welcome all our patients and their families back to our practice.  As we open our practice, you will notice some changes we have implemented to keep everyone safe.  The attachment included with this letter will spell out specific protocol that will be used every day in bringing our patients into the office.  We will also have information on our website, www.orthosandiego.com, and our Facebook page.  Please visit these two valuable platforms for any questions you may have before you come in for your first visit with Stormberg Orthodontics.  Over the next few weeks our Team will be contacting all the patients that had appointments cancelled or rescheduled during the stay-at-home orders from Governor Newsom.  We will be fair in how we approach rescheduling our patients and start with the patients first affected on March 17th.  This way we should be able to get to all the patients affected over a 6 to 8 week period to catch us up.  We ask for your patience during this time, which I am sure you will understand.

Finally, I want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding over these difficult 8 weeks.

Thank You,

Kurt Stormberg, DDS, MS

Diplomate, American Board of Orthodontics

  1. For staff and patient protection
    1. The patient will be the only one that can come in for their appointment.The only exception is for patients 12 y/o and younger, then they may be accompanied by one parent or guardian.Parents or guardians of patients older than 12 should remain in their vehicles and we will call you after appointment to discuss the patient’s progress.
    2. Any patient or guardian who has symptoms of the COVID – 19 virus (dry cough, elevated temperature, loss of taste or smell, sneezing or cold symptoms) or have been around persons who have COVID – 19, we would like you to call and reschedule your appointment until you have completed quarantine.
    3. Any patient that has traveled outside the United States or in highly infected areas of COVID – 19 in the last two weeks should complete 14 day quarantine prior to their orthodontic appointment.
    4. All patients and parents/guardian will wear a mask and wash their hands (hand sanitizer station will be provided) prior to entering the office.
    5. Patients will enter in one entry point and then will exit from another door after their appointment.Appointments will be scheduled with a phone call immediately after your appointment.
    6. All patients and/or guardians entering Stormberg Orthodontics will have a temperature screening/health questionnaire prior to going back to the operatory.
    7. Our reception area, coffee bar and game stations will be closed until further notice to prevent any COVID-19 contamination between our patients and families.
    8. Our tooth brushing stations will also be closed so please make sure you brush and floss prior to your appointment.
  2. For patient protection
    1. All proper personal protection equipment (masks, gloves, eye protection, face shields, etc.) is used by Stormberg Orthodontic Team members to make sure we do not spread the virus to our patients.
    2. Our sterilization methods are of the highest standards and are more than effective against COVID-19 virus.
    3. Normally you would see our operatory in an open bay configuration.During the pandemic there will be partitions (barriers) between chairs to prevent any cross-patient contamination.
    4. We will see fewer patients at a time until further notice to minimize the number of people in the office at one time.
    5. We will continually disinfect all common surface areas and door handles throughout the day to minimize any surface contact contamination.
    6. The front desk will have sneeze shields in place to protect patients as they transact any business with our administrative team members
