COVID 19 Policy
We are well aware and completely informed about the COVID 19 outbreak. By being updated with the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the local and state health department, we are ensuring the complete safety of our patients and staff at Rolle Oral & Facial Surgery, and controlling the spread of the virus. As a precautionary step, we have asked our patients to call and reschedule the appointment if they show any flu-like symptoms.
We are presently open and operational for the patients who are suffering from swelling, pain, dental trauma, or some other immediate concerns of teeth and oral cavity. Even if you cannot reach your local dentist, you can come to us without any referral form. We are taking all precautions and diligently following CDC guidelines to control the disease and the spread of the virus by keeping the number of patients per hour and the waiting room volume in check. We also sterilize every room and all our instruments with recommended personal protective equipment. Being a recognized healthcare provider organization, we remain open even if there is a state lockdown imposed in NC. With our service, we ensure that you don’t have to rush to the ER with dental issues, pain, swelling, and other such immediate concerns.
We are offering to minimize interpersonal contact by offering online forms or the paperwork that you can finish sitting in your car when you are coming for a scheduled consultation.
