COVID-19 Guidelines

Hello Treehouse Kids Dentist family and friends!

After many meetings and much discussion we have formulated our new plan on how to best navigate our practice in these changing times. We appreciate your patience with us as we have discussed many intricacies and details to keep both your families and our staff safe during this pandemic. We are so anxious to see you all again!

As many of you know, Governor Brown has allowed medical professionals to return to work. We are returning to modified appointment schedules. We encourage you to call our office to discuss the best time to bring your children in.

This is a new world. We have adapted protocols from direction of the American Dental Association (ADA), the CDC and our dental equipment suppliers.


Stacy, Jamie and Kaitlyn, our amazing front desk gals, will be calling to confirm appointments. During this call some important information will be given to you.

  • We will be screening all patients on the phone and again at the appointment with a patient screening form given to us by the ADA
  • When you arrive, we ask that you wait in your car and give our front office a call. (541) 515-6631. Someone will bring out any necessary paperwork to your car. We will supply you with a new pen that you are free to keep! When it is time for your appointment, our staff will come to your vehicle.
  • We ask parents to bring their own masks for their families, as we do not have enough to supply to you. Only masked family members will be allowed in the clinic area to minimize airborne pathogens. If you wait in the waiting room you will notice chairs that are appropriately distanced from one another.
  • We can only allow one adult and one child in the office at one time, unless multiple children are receiving treatment at one time. Parents with young infants are free to bring these children with them.
  • Our schedule has been modified to allow extra time to sanitize and to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.

Coming in to the Clinic

  • When you come into the clinic, we ask that you don your mask.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available to you upon entry into the clinic. You are free to wash your hands in our lobby bathroom as well.
  • We will again ask about any symptoms that may have developed since our confirmation call. If you have any symptoms you may be asked to reschedule.
  • Temperatures will be taken at the beginning of the appointment prior to going back into the clinic area.
  • Again, one parent is allowed back into the clinic area with the child.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to open any of our play areas at this time, which we all know it will be very difficult to resist the treehouse slide in the lobby area. We have also removed all reading material and toys that children play with. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

We want families to be aware of what we are doing at Treehouse Kids Dentist to create the safest environment for you and for our staff.

  • We are installing HEPA-Rx filters from Surgically Clean Air throughout the clinic. These amazing filters clear the air of not only pathogens (bacteria and viruses) but also harmful chemicals and unwanted smells.
  • We are also purchasing new extra oral suctions that greatly reduce aerosols that are produced from dental procedures. They will rest next to the patient’s mouth and will be unnoticeable to your child.
  • Your dental staff will look different. We will be donning full length material gowns that we will launder on site. We have chosen these gowns for both safety and to cut down on environmental waste. We have ordered respirators that we will cover with masks to conceal their daunting appearance. We will also be wearing face shields during actual procedures. Stay tuned for photos of us so that you can prepare your child for our new look.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this new world. We are hopeful that in the near future we will open up all our play areas, coffee bar, and chalkboard wall soon. We wish you all health, love and peace.

Love, the Treehouse Gang
