On Tuesday, November 4 our team participated in an Intruder Safety course taught by Sgt. Matt Partain and designed for the protection of our team, patients and parents. After studying the office and its access, the surrounding area and any potential safety hazards, Sgt. Partain designed a presentation specifically tailored to Uncommon Orthodontics.
Team members learned to identify and diffuse potentially dangerous situations and to confidently deal with escalating or toxic circumstances. Protocols were established for both scenarios and a team member was designated as Safety Officer. The Safety Officer will hold regular meetings, supervise scheduled practices and conduct in-house drills.
Uncommon Orthodontics is committed to the “well being” of our team, patients and families…and physical protection is no exception. Our EF5 rated storm shelter will serve as both a weather and an intruder safety protection…don’t be too surprised if we hold a drill while you are in the office! In the unlikely event that your safety is compromised by a weather or an intruder related event, you may be confident that “we’ve got a plan for that!”
