August 13, 2020 Update
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently advised that routine non-essential oral health care be delayed until there has been a sufficient reduction in COVID-19 transmission rates.
The ADA has released a statement in direct response noting “Dentistry is Essential Health Care.” The FDA strongly disagrees with the World Health Organization’s position. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been millions of aerosol-generating procedures in the United States without a single documented COVID-19 transmission between patients and their dental health care providers.
As we all continue to get back to our routines, our office is checking in as your trusted partner in dental care and oral health.
If you have questions or concerns related to your oral health, dental care needs, or upcoming dental appointments, we are here to answer your questions.
Your safety and well-being are our top priorities. Our office has always used the highest level of precautions to prevent the spread of infections, and we are continuing to engage in additional precautions to protect our patients and our team from the spread of COVID-19.
Thank you for making us your trusted partner in dental care.
