COVID-19 OFFICE UPDATE - March 18,2020
To our valued patients,
Today we have made the decision to follow the recommendation of the American Dental Association to temporarily suspend elective dental procedures in our office. At this time, it is recommended that dental offices provide only emergency dental care for patients. Elective and non-emergent services will be postponed until at least Monday, April 6, 2020. The policy will be revisited at that time to accommodate further developments regarding COVID-19 and further actions/recommendations from the government agencies.
Our office is not taking the guidance lightly, and it is being done out of the abundance of caution during these turbulent times. As healthcare professionals, we all have a role to play in slowing the spread of the coronavirus and “flattening the curve” in order to follow sound scientific, public health advice, to help limit infections and slow the spread of this virus.
The spread of COVID-19 will be determined by our collective actions now. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protection equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline healthcare personnel responding to the pandemic.
As recommended by the American Dental Association, our office will still be open to patients on an emergency basis, and someone will be answering your calls from 9:00am to 1:00pm Monday through Friday to ensure that your concerns are addressed.
If you have an appointment scheduled between Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and Friday, April 3, 2020 we will be contacting you to reschedule your appointment.
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the office from 9:00am to 1:00pm Monday through Friday. Everyone please stay safe, and we will update you as things change and progress.
Dr. Sullivan, Dr. Stanosheck & Staff
