COVID-19 Office Announcement

Dear Sprayberry Family,

We hope that this post finds you and your family in good health. It goes without saying, but our world has been through a lot over the past couple months. Like most of you, we are both anxious and excited to resume our normal habits and routines.

We can’t wait to see your smiling faces and continue the work that we started together (or that we will soon be starting). While you will find that some things in our office have changed, the important thing has remained the same: our commitment to delivering beautiful smiles in a welcoming and safe environment.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our infection control processes allow you to receive orthodontic care in a safe and comfortable environment.

We have carefully considered and prepared for all of the new recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, before making the decision to reopen our office.

Changes You Can Expect

We ask that you join us in adopting these new practices:

  • Please bring your own mask (fabric masks are fine) to wear at your appointment.
  • We ask that the patient enter the building alone for their routine visits. We encourage parents to wait in the car. However, if a parent wants to be present, we will allow one parent to accompany their child. They will also be required to wear a mask. Additional family members must remain in the car.
  • When you arrive in our parking lot, please stay in your car. You will call the office number 334-821-5031 to let us know that you are here. We will then ask you the following pre-screening questions:
    1. Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19?
    2. Have you been exposed to anyone with COVID-19?
    3. Do you have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell?
  • Sprayberry team members will go through the same screening each morning and will have their temperature taken before we begin the day. They will be sent home if they exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19
  • Once you have responded to the pre-screening questions, we will meet you at the door to take your temperature. If your temperature is above 99.4° F you will not be seen and will have to reschedule. If your temperature is below 99.4° F, you will then be escorted to the clinic area.
  • The tooth-brushing sinks are now used for hand-washing, so please brush your teeth before you come.
  • We will not be scheduling future appointments at the front desk at this time but ask that you call us when you return to your vehicle to schedule your next visit.

If you test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of your appointment in our office, we ask that you please let us know, according to the guidelines outlined by the CDC.

Let’s Do This

We believe that what we do every day has a huge, positive impact on our patients’ lives and we look forward to not only taking care of our existing patients but also to continue to monitor the growth and development of children’s teeth and jaws.

We do not see any reason for COVID-19 to stand in the way of our ability to do our work, or our patients’ desire to have a smile that they are proud of!

We will miss all of the handshakes, high-fives, and hugs that we are accustomed to in our practice. Please know that we are smiling huge smiles behind our masks and that we can’t wait for the day when these precautions are no longer necessary!

See you soon!!
