Deer Park Elementary PTA

Thank you Deer Park Elementary PTA for allowing us to sponsor your first ever pumpkin drive thru! ๐Ÿš˜๐ŸŽƒ Deer Park Elementary

This Thursday should be a FUN night for our Deer Park Family!

๐Ÿด From 4-8 pm we are having our October spirit night at Mothers ๐Ÿง†, Surf Shack ๐ŸŒฎ, AND Froyo ๐Ÿฆ. Please join us for dinner AND to support the PTA with each meal!

๐ŸŽƒ From 5-6:30 pm, join us for our first ever pumpkin drive thru parade at Deer Park!! Teachers and staff will be lined along the school showing off their literary inspired pumpkins.

A special thanks to Geric & Torres Orthodontics for their generous donation to offset the cost of pumpkins for our staff and goodies for our goodie bags! Thanks to Rona's Cookies and More for offering a sweet treat to the teacher with the winning pumpkin, and to 7-Eleven, PDQ, Culver's, McDonald's, Tiffany Accattato, AND Mrs. Lefler for offering up goodies for our goodie bags! ๐Ÿ›

We hope to see you on Thursday! ๐ŸŽƒ ๐Ÿš— ๐ŸŽƒ

We took the Pledge. Have you?
โ€œFrom this day forward, I promise to respect those around me as well as respect myself. I am somebody, I can make a difference. I can make another feel loved. I can be the helping hand that leads another back to the path of hope and aspiration. I will not stand silent as others try to spread hatred through my community. Instead, I pledge to lift up those victims and show them that their life matters. I will be the change, because I am somebody!!!โ€ #antibullying #bullyingawareness #bullyingbites #westchaseorthodontist #torresortho #kindnessmatters

Dear Geric & Torres Orthodontic Patients,

We are excited to announce that our office is coming out of quarantine! We will be opening to see regularly scheduled visits on Monday, May 11th.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. We have always used universal precautions with the most state of the art equipment and we will continue to do so. ๏ฟฝFor the past month and a half, we have been closely following updates of added infection control recommendations made by the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO), American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The following are some additional steps we are taking to keep you, our staff and families extra safe:

Before your appointment:
- Check your health. If you or anyone in your household has or is (1) experiencing fever, (2) cough, (3) shortness of breath, (4) persistent pain/tightness of the chest, (5) recent loss of taste or smell, (6) traveled in the past 14 days, or (7) been in contact with someone who has tested positive or been diagnosed as having COVID-19 or another communicable disease, please reschedule your orthodontic appointment and consider contacting your primary care physician.
- Brush and floss before your appointment as our brushing station will be closed.
Please prepare for our restroom to be open on a very limited basis.
- If you have a mask and plan to enter the office, we suggest you to please wear it.
- If you consider yourself a high risk patient please contact our office so that we may accommodate your appointment.
During your appointment:
- When possible, please help us limit the number of individuals in the office by sending in only those who have scheduled appointments. Per federal guidelines weโ€™d like no more than 10 people in the building at a time.
- We will be screening everyone before entering the office including our own staff. The screening will consist of a temperature check and confirmation of the above wellness questions.
- We will ask that you wash your hands at our washing stations with soap and water for a least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer will also be available for your convenience.
- We will have every patient rinse for 30 seconds with diluted hydrogen peroxide to help reduce aerosols and cross contamination.
- We will alternate between each chair used while providing treatment, so that each patient seen is at least 6 feet of distance from each other.
- Proper personal protective equipment will be worn by all staff and extra precautions will be used to minimize risk of transmission.
After your appointment:
- You may reschedule at the desk or over the phone.
- As always, make sure to brush your teeth, stay away from hard and sticky foods, and wear your rubber bands.
- Continue to practice social distancing and proper hygiene to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We look forward to continue providing you with amazing orthodontic care while also keeping your health as our number one priority. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust, support, and patience and look forward to welcoming you back.
Dr. Rodney Torres and Team

During this COVID-19 office closure, the team at Geric & Torres Orthodontics is working diligently to stay connected and support our patients. We sincerely miss seeing all our patients and their smiles. If your appointment was rescheduled or if you are a new patient and would like to get a virtual consultation and treatment recommendations, please follow the instructions we created below.

Be sure to text or email your photos to (813) 563-1247 or [email protected] and set up your preferred contact method (text, phone call or Zoom video call) and time by clicking this link:

Please keep in mind, we are available for any orthodontic emergencies and you may text Dr. Torres at (813) 563-1247 at any time.

Thank you for your flexibility, patience, and understanding during these challenging times. We will all get through this together. Stay safe and we will see you soon!

To our Geric & Torres Orthodontic Family,

We regret to inform you that through the issuance of Governor DeSantisโ€™s Executive Order 20-72 this evening, our office will be closed for all non-emergency orthodontic procedures starting Monday March 23rd and expect to reopen on Monday May 11th.

It is very important that all patients understand that your orthodontic treatment will not be stopped due to this closure as trays or wires and elastics will continue to move your teeth. Please rest assured that as we comply with this mandate we will be here for you, readily available for any and all orthodontic emergencies that you or your child may experience. If you have an emergency or any questions about your orthodontic treatment, please contact Dr. Rodney Torres directly via text at 813-563-1247.

Please be patient with us as we contact all scheduled patients to reschedule their next in-person appointment and provide further guidance for the upcoming weeks. At the same time, keep following our page for updates and feel free to contact us through Messenger or text if you have any other questions or concerns.

We care about each and everyone of you and your families and urge that all stay safe during these difficult times.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, see you soon!

To our Geric & Torres Orthodontics Patient Family,

The health and safety of our patients, team members, and community is of utmost importance to us. We want to share what our office is doing in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please be assured we are closely monitoring developments and implementing several safety precautions regarding this coronavirus.

At this time our plan is to continue to serve the community without interruption. Being a healthcare facility, we ALWAYS practice universal precautions, meaning every patient is treated as if they may have an infectious disease. These precautions keep every patient safe, as well as our team. The office will be following the CDCโ€™s recommendations as we learn more about this virus. We have increased our disinfection protocol, and our deep cleaning schedule.

In addition we have asked our team members to refrain from handshaking during this time. We will also temporarily discontinue our self-serve coffee bar, arcade and self-check in. Please inform the front desk as soon as you arrive so that we may check you in. We will continue to provide our patients with the option of water bottles at each appointment.

As always during cold and flu season, we ask you to please reschedule your appointment if you feel ill, have suffered from a fever in the last 24-48 hours, developed a cough, or think you have been exposed to someone with these symptoms.

In an attempt to minimize the number of individuals within our office, we respectfully ask that only patients with a scheduled appointment, and an accompanying adult, come to the office. At this time we are requesting that all other guests of our patients wait in the car. We love meeting and interacting with your friends and family and consequently hope this is a very short term request.

As per CDC guidelines, it is important for you to wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer as needed. We will have hand sanitizers available upon your arrival.

We have also communicated to our team that they should remain at home if they are experiencing a cough or fever. We may experience some short staffed days in the future, and appreciate your patience during this time.

With the recent school closings, please rest assured that we are still here for you. As always, we will keep you updated of any changes. We appreciate your assistance with these guidelines.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
