Office Closure Notice - Open for Emergencies ONLY!
Dear Patients, Families and Friends,
As our community copes with the fast-moving spread of Covid-19, coronavirus, we hope you and yours are in good health during this stressful time.
As you are aware, the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has issued warnings and precautions to health-care providers worldwide regarding Covid-19, Coronavirus.
Public officials have advised medical and dental providers to postpone elective procedures for a limited time while we social distance in the effort to slow the spread of this virus.
Patients with upcoming appointments that will have to be rescheduled will be notified by our team, on an ongoing basis as we wait for more understanding of this ever-changing situation.
We will continue to be available on a limited basis for dental emergencies only.
Should you experience a dental emergency, please call our main office phone number and leave a message. This phone number connects to our after-hours cell phone. We will respond to you as soon as possible.
