Read on below to learn more about our new Practice Protocol for COVID-19. We hope everyone is staying safe and well during this coronavirus pandemic! 

We wanted to share with you our new COVID-19 Protocol for our office, so we encourage you to watch this video and visit our YouTube Channel here to keep up with the latest measures we have in place for our patients to keep our community safe! 
Dr. Stormberg has also added in Air Scrubbers, in the A/C units across the office, that circulate the air ~100 times an hour to clean out all vented air indoors. We also fog the office every night for extra protection. We are constantly monitoring and finding new methods to ensure maximum safety and hygiene practices for all. 


For Staff Protection:

Our minor (under 18 years old) patients may be accompanied by one parent or guardian.  We do limit how many people can be in our office/at our chairs for all of our safety.  Once the minor patient's appointment is completed,  we will call or visit with you in your car to discuss the patient’s progress.

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.

Any patient that has traveled outside the United States or in highly infected areas of COVID – 19 in the last two weeks should complete a 14-day quarantine prior to their orthodontic appointment.

All patients and parents/guardian will wear a mask and wash their hands (hand sanitizer station will be provided) prior to entering the office.

Patients will enter/check in and exit/make follow up appointments through the front desk.  Appointments will be scheduled with a phone call or at the front desk immediately after your appointment.  This ensures you get a time/day that is convenient with you. 

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.

Our tooth brushing stations will also be closed so please make sure you brush and floss prior to your appointment.

For Patient Protection:

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.

Our sterilization methods are of the highest standards and are more than effective against COVID-19 virus, with weekly testing.

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.

We will see fewer patients at a time until further notice to minimize the number of people in the office at one time.

We will continually disinfect all common surface areas and door handles throughout the day to minimize any surface contact contamination. 

Ultimately, we want to make our patients and their families feel comfortable and secure in our practice as we continue to create beautiful smile!

Finally, if you have any questions or concerns prior to your appointment please feel free to contact us at (619) 462-4462.
