Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Virtual and In-Office Consultations Available
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. 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.
Our office is now open for emergency, urgent, time sensitive essential procedures along with elective procedures in accordance with recommendations from all relevant governmental agencies along with the American Dental Association and the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons. We are open during our normal office hours and look forward to being able to serve you as the need arises.
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, gastrointestinal symptoms or sudden loss of taste or smell. In order to insure the safety of all of our patients, someone from our office needs to screen you over the phone to make sure that you do not have any relevant findings that may require that we re-schedule your appointment. Please be sure to call us back if we do not connect with you during our screening phone call a day or two before your appointment.
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.
