Dental Offices are being asked to do their part to mitigate the spread of the virus known as COVID-19 and minimize the burden on the potentially over-taxed emergency health-care system. The health and safety of our team members and patients is our highest priority. We are cutting back our patient schedule drastically and providing only essential and emergency treatment for the next few weeks. We consider all dentistry necessary to the health and well-being of our patients, but must prioritize and perform only the most urgent of procedures first.
We are seating and treating one patient at a time and thus providing social distancing between individuals in the office. We would like to ask our patients to do their part to mitigate unnecessary social interaction as well, by coming alone to appointments, and leave drivers and caregivers outside of the office if possible. We do ask parents or guardians to remain inside the building, and available if the patient is a minor.
Officials and leaders of our profession would like for us to continue to be available for patients who require attention. If you or your friends or loved ones need a Dentist, contact us, and we will do our best to meet your needs. It is our hope and we look forward to a full restoration of our treatment schedule on or before Easter weekend.
Meanwhile, we advise everyone to follow all recommendations given to us by the leaders of the CDC and the doctors from the Coronavirus Task Force.
