Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Based on the new government regulations in adhering to dental and medical practices, effectively immediately and until May 6, 2020 we will stop seeing any patient that is not a true dental emergency.
True dental emergency is described as:
1- Dental toothache or pain.
2- Active infection/swelling with or without pain.
3- Traumatic injury to teeth.
In the event you have a dental emergency, please rest assured our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely and we will keep you updated regularly.
Patients that are already scheduled for treatment, that are currently asymptomatic, will be rescheduled for the time being and until further notice.
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.
Upon checking in, we are asking patients to fill out any necessary paperwork in their car and wait to be called in. This will help limit contact in our waiting areas. 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.
