Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Office closed until April 6 due to coronavirus precautions:
Our office will be closed for patient care effective Thursday March 18 – April 3 due to the coronavirus. Local and national dental societies have recommended the shutdown due to the large amount of aerosols generated while doing dentistry. This includes routine cleanings.
While our office takes standard precaution in sterilizing instruments and disinfecting surfaces, we all must do our part to keep our community from spreading this virus.
We will be available by phone on Monday – Thursdays from 8:30am- 12:30pm. If you are a patient of record and a dental emergency arises during the office closure, please call the office during these hours. Our team will then make a decision on making an appointment and possible treatment. Alternatively, our doctors may be in contact with you for emergency exams. Please read the following consent form as related to the practice of teledentistry (Teledentistry Consent)
If you had a scheduled appointment during this 2-week period, our office will be in contact with you to reschedule. We understand that these cancellations may be an inconvenience to you, but ask for your patience as we try to reschedule your appointment.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
