In an effort to support national efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community.
-We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a way to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
-Your health, and the health of our dedicated staff, matters to us, so going forward we will suspend all non-emergency care for two weeks or until further notice.
-Patients will be seen for urgent and emergency dental needs. Please call our office as you would normally do so and we will have a small team available to treat your urgent dental problem.
We would like to reassure everyone that infection control in our office is always a top priority and will continue to be so. In order to continue protect our patients and staff, we strictly adhere to sterilization and cross contamination practices, following standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
We look forward to seeing you soon. Until then, don’t panic, be safe, stay healthy, stay informed, stay prepared and please take care of each other.
