We want to inform you that we are following the American Dental Associations guidelines and limiting care in our office due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. We will be contacting you about already scheduled appointments. We will be available for non-invasive care and emergency care.
If you have a dental concern as well as respiratory symptoms, such as a dry cough or fever, it is important you let us know BEFORE you come in.
Also, you have an appointment during this time and you develop Covid-19 after you are seen, per the CDC guidelines, please let us know.
Call our office if you are experiencing a dental concern. Thank you!
Each of you is very important to us and we want you to know that the decisions we have made are not made without much discussion and discernment. None of us have ever faced disruption of this magnitude in our lives. We will get through it and we will be all working together as a team again soon to serve our dental family.
We, as a country, do not know what is going to happen for sure. We do know that many of our fellow citizens are going to get sick and some will die. There will be a disruption in happiness and security for many. We will be stretched in ways we may not be able to comprehend. We encourage everyone not to borrow tomorrow’s perceived troubles onto today. Live in the present. We all have to give up our “familiar” and step out into the unfamiliar where we can find new possibilities because we are all hard-working survivors.
In closing, we just would encourage each of you to focus on helping someone each day so that your mind can be relieved of your own fears. Please stay safe! Safe means isolation and hygiene are paramount. Please check in with each other, family members, older adult neighbors and us via our website for updates.
