Hello to each of you,
Our aim is to make a positive impact towards the health of our community. With this in mind, we are closing our practice for non-essential care for the next 14-days and week to week afterwards till we get through this. Our intention is to allow this disease process a chance to level out, reduce the strain on our medical providers and allow life to return to normal sooner than later.
Non-essential care can be defined as hygiene visits (with the exception of those needing medical clearance for mandatory surgeries), fillings and crowns, and extractions when no infection is present. We WILL be available throughout this time to address emergency care: broken tooth, swelling of the face, extreme temperature sensitivity and signs of infection. If you are not sure if your concerns are a “true emergency” we welcome your call. When in doubt, let’s talk it out.
Shirley will continue to answer your questions via text, email and phone call throughout this process – so know that assistance is available. In the meantime, please update your calendars. We will be reassessing the situation periodically and will be sure to reach out with updates and to get you rescheduled.
Be safe, be considerate, stay calm, flexible and focused.
