Important Information Regarding COVID-19
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.
Recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak are ever-evolving. As of today, the Governor of Ohio has mandated that dentists postpone any routine or elective care for the time being. For the safety of you and our team, we are following these recommendations and taking the following actions:
- We are in the process of reaching out to all of our patients who are scheduled for routine hygiene visits or non-urgent restorative care in the near future to make arrangements to reschedule. We appreciate your patience as we work through contacting everyone.
- Our office will remain open during regular business hours (Monday -Thursday 7am-3pm) to take your calls and provide care to anyone with an urgent need.
If you are experiencing a sensitive, uncomfortable or broken tooth or suspect you may have a dental infection, we are happy to schedule you an appointment. We are still here to provide you care so that your condition does not worsen.
We continue to keep up-to-date with recommendations daily and will continue to communicate with you so that we can provide care to you as soon as we are able. As always, please call us with any questions. We are checking messages regularly and will return you calls.
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. 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.
