IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PATIENTS
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association have recommended that dentists nationwide postpone routine visits and elective procedures for the next three weeks, in order for dentistry to do its part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to conserve healthcare supplies for the hospitals and other facilities that will need them. That being said, those agencies and the White House have also asked us to continue providing needed and emergency treatment so that urgent care facilities and emergency rooms are not overwhelmed with dental patients. We must do our part as healthcare workers to balance our safety and the safety of our patients while serving the needs of the community as a whole.
From Wednesday afternoon, March 18, through Friday, April 10, all routine hygiene appointments and elective procedures (e.g. teeth whitening, cosmetic dentistry, etc.) will be rescheduled. If you are currently scheduled for any other treatment, we will be in contact with you over the coming days to discuss your health status, health screening protocols and confirm whether the appointment should be kept or can be rescheduled to a later date. We will continue to see all patients needing emergency or immediate care.
Once all currently scheduled treatment has been completed, our offices will continue to remain open on a limited basis in order to treat emergencies and urgent issues as they arise. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community and keep you up-to-date regarding our plans to resume business as usual.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if you have a dental emergency or need immediate care during this period, please call our office at 281.970.4000 to schedule.
Thank you to our patients for your understanding during this time,
