With the recent news and spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we know our patients have questions. As dedicated healthcare professionals, we want you to know that we are committed to the health and safety of our patients and staff. 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.
Although our practice remains open, we are reducing the number of elective appointments performed during this time. This is a temporary measure, but one we believe is necessary to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our patients and staff. We will continue to treat patients who are experiencing dental swelling, pain, or are currently taking antibiotics. Patients with scheduled elective procedures may be notified and asked to reschedule to a future date.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as cold or 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.
