Duringer Orthodontic Lab’s Continued Vigilance regarding Covid-19

While we’ve all been experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic for some time now, and we’re seeing some hope for a return to our normal lives at some point, it is clear that we will have to maintain a high level of vigilance and active preventive measures for some time to come.

We wish all our clients good health during this time. And to ensure maximum transparency and clarity in reassurances provided by our company, Duringer Orthodontic Laboratory is issuing a detailed communication regarding our interim policies and actions related to the impact of COVID-19 outbreak on our clients and employees. As the situation evolves, DOL will update this information as needed.

Interactions with Clients and the Dental Community

Security: The security and integrity of the information clients rely on us to protect and manage will continue to be a top priority. The usual high standard of care DOL provides in that regard will remain unchanged.

Flexibility: At this time, unless instructed or arranged otherwise at the client’s discretion, we will continue to provide service as scheduled. To modify service, please contact DOL Customer Service at 510 756-5235 or info@duringerortholab.com.

Employee/Client Interactions: In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have implemented explicit policies, instruction, and training to minimize the need for interaction among clients’ employees and others, including our employees adhering to the following:

  • Not reporting for work should they feel any symptoms, including but not limited to fever, difficulty breathing, headaches, or muscle aches.
  • Declaring their fitness for duty each day upon arrival at work, which is also subject to supervisor evaluation
  • Frequent sanitizing of hands and, where possible, wearing sanitized gloves and face masks
  • Washing of any, and all equipment that is used to service clients
  • Maintaining all existing policies related to data security, including authorized access to records and media already transferred to employees’ custody.

DOL will continue to do our best to promptly address all inquiries and requests. If, due to staffing limitations, we cannot respond immediately, we will do so as soon as possible. We thank our clients in advance for patience during this time.

Employment Policies

We have instructed our employees that no employee should come into work if showing symptoms of influenza, including but not limited to fever, difficulty breathing, headaches, or muscle aches. There will be no discrimination or negative repercussions for appropriately reported absences. Furthermore, should a family member or close personal associate with whom an employee has regular direct contact shows such symptoms, employees are required to inform their supervisor, and may be required to stay away from work. This may lead to the lab being less available for brief periods of time. Also, all of our staff maintain up-to-date vaccinations.

Questions & Comments

We encourage you to contact us with any questions, either by phone (510-756-5237), or by email: info@duringerortholab.com.
