Aloha Smile Hawaii Ohana,
We are here for you. We understand times are changing. A New reality is upon us…
“Safety First” has been our #1 priority during the Phased re-opening.
Phase 1, May 11: Open part time, limited to essential services. Single provider, Dr Ogata.
Phase 2, June 1: Doctor Ogata, added Hygienist Teal for limited scheduling.
Phase 3, June 15: Doctor Ogata, Teal and added Hygienist Maria, staggered scheduling.
As of August 1st, we have all our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) organized and in stock.
Again, our priority is SAFETY FIRST. We respect the safety for our patients as well as ourselves.
We are pre-screening 100% of our clients before stepping into our office:
We send a text link or email with Covid-19 and health history forms to be filled out in anticipation of your visit.
Please Kokua (help), fill these forms and submit online 3 days in advance of your appointment.
For our Kupuna (elderly), in office help is available if online forms prove too difficult to negotiate.
We have both Air Doctor and Dyson Air Purifiers in every room and operatory. We have also invested in Vector Vortex External Oral Suction Device for added layer of protection.
We are defogging every operatory in between patients as recommended by ADA.
We are doing everything possible to disinfect and sterilize.
Your trust is literally in our hands and we gladly accept this responsibility.
Lastly, in light of the pandemic spread and increasing daily counts of Covid-19, we will be closely monitoring county and state recommendations.
We are empathetic to patient needs and we respect everyone’s decision to seek dental care, whether now or later.
We appreciate our Smile Hawaii Ohana and plan to continue providing even better care than ever before.
Me Ke Aloha and A Hui Hou
Dr. Lance Ogata and our Smile Hawaii team
