As you know, the updates and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are constantly changing and evolving day-to-day. We wanted to reach out to reassure you that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking the most current scientific updates into account regarding our practice and patient care. Our goal is to stay well-informed, plan effective screening and infection control protocols, and provide the highest level of care and safety to our patients and their families.
The California Dental Association (CDA) is strongly recommending that dentists practicing in California voluntarily suspend non-essential and non-urgent dental care for the next 14 days.
Tentatively, we will plan to re-open our schedule to elective patient care on Monday, March 30th, 2020, though we realize that the situation is continually developing. Upon resumption of our care, we will be implementing proper patient screening and infection control measures to keep our patients safe and protected.
We ask that if you are exhibiting any cold/flu-like symptoms (sore throat, cough, fever), have come in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, or had recent travel to high-risk areas within the last 2 weeks, to please call our office to further delay your appointment.
Thank you for your care and understanding. We are all in this together.
