To our dear patients and families,
Summer has arrived!
We just want to provide an update about COVID precautions and policies in our office. Following the recommendations of King County Public Health, the Washington State Dept. of Health and the CDC, we encourage everyone to keep up-to-date with recommended COVID vaccines. We remain vigilant to prevent exposure and transmission of COVID-19 and other illnesses through facility cleanliness, improved ventilation with HEPA filtration units in our operatories and waiting room, and good hygiene practices among our staff.
We are asking you, our valued patients and families, to self-assess and assess your children for possible COVID like symptoms, (not limited to but including headache, cough, fever, runny nose and congestion, gastrointestinal symptoms, loss of taste and smell) and/or a known close contact exposure or a positive COVID test in the last 14 days. In these instances, we are asking you to re-schedule appointments as needed to reduce transmission of any of the illnesses that are out there!
We have hand sanitizer for your use, but are no longer requiring masks for patients and families while in our office. Our clinical staff will continue wearing masks and we follow the guidelines for universal infection control as we always have. If you are concerned about your own possible exposures, please wear a well fitting mask while in our office. We want you to be comfortable here! You can voice your concerns and we will continue to re-evaluate our policies.
Have you met Dr. Misa Yoshioka yet? She is a full fledged board certified pediatric dentist and is working Mondays and Fridays in the office. Dr Sata will now work Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays and enjoy sharing call with Dr. Yoshioka every other weekend!
Keep an eye out for our dental assistant, Amaris. She is featured in a Metro transportation ad. We have seen her on TV, the side of buses and a big billboard. It gives us such joy to see her outside of the office. I spy, with my little eye- Dr Sata's dental assistant!
We are looking forward to seeing you for your child's dental care. We are happily accepting new patients!
Please call us to schedule 206-522-1565.
Dr. Sata, Dr. Yoshioka and our awesome team!
P.S. The plushie animals are back from vacation!
