Updated 3/20/20 – Current
We are continuing to follow the updates and recommendations of the CDC, American dental association, and Washington state Department of Health and would like to update you that in order to put a stop to the further spread of coronavirus and to ensure that our medical providers are able to have the resources necessary to take care of those who need it most, dental offices have been requested to continue to postpone elective dental treatment until May 18th.
Although it saddens us to not be able to see our patients as we normally would, we understand the weight and severity if we don’t take strong measures to address the issue we are all continuing to face. Rest assured, we will continue to be here for you guys in any shape or form that we can.
If you have an upcoming appointment with us, we will contact you once we have a concrete date that we will be able to resume normal operations. Please feel free to contact us with any emergency needs at the office phone number!
We hope that everyone continues to stay safe, continues to be kind to one another, and continues to maintain a positive spirit!
Update From 3/19/2020 – Old
As we have been closely monitoring the decisions and recommendations of the CDC, ADA (American Dental Association), WA state Department of Health, and WA state government, we have decided to take action to do what we feel is best to help in the fight against COVID-10 (Coronavirus). All of these entities agree that the best way we can reduce spread and “flatten the curve” is by social distancing, especially in a profession that can create an abundance of aerosols.
Effective immediately we are pausing all non-emergent dental care for the next 2 weeks, through the end of March. Emergent dental care includes examination of and treatment for any dental or orofacial pain, swelling or infection.
We did not take this decision lightly, but truly feel it is the responsible choice for our family of patients, staff, and for the surrounding community. Oral health and oral healthcare is an integral part of overall health and well-being, and at this time this is the best way we can contribute to the health and well-being of our community.
We will be operating on a very limited schedule. Please call our office if you feel you have a true dental emergency, and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible. We will keep updating our plans based on the evolving COVID-19 situation, if there is any change to our
April 1 return date occurs will reach out as needed.
Thank you for your understanding, keep calm, keep brushing, keep flossing, and keep healthy!
