Healthy Smiles started an exciting program recently, an Urgent Dental Care Mobile Center. They are providing FREE Emergency Dental Services and would like to offer urgent dental services to the Dos Palos Oro Loma Joint Unified School District and community.
There is a definite need for urgent care with children and adults who are going through pain during this pandemic outbreak with no resources and no financial assistance. The program is safe and effective to provide direct emergency dental services with the implementation of COVID-19 infection control per the ADA and CDC. In addition to that, they have taken additional measures for infection control. Each patient is given a hand sanitizer before being seen along with a mask if they do not have one.
Below is an outline of the program:
- They will only see patients with appointments every hour. Only two members of the family is allowed to come to the appointment.
- Tents are set up for triage and patient waiting area with a physical distancing layout. The waiting area is set up for a maximum of four people.
- X-rays are taken outside near the triage tent. After the doctor diagnosis a need for emergency care, the patient is taken into the van for treatment. There are only three people in the van each visit. The doctor, dental assistant, and the patient.
FREE Emergency Dental Services Available by Appointment Only. Call Healthy Smiles at 559-229-6437.
