UPDATE TO OUR RECENT COMMUNICATION CONCERNING COVID-19

 

Dear Valued Patient,

During this unprecedented health crisis, changes are occurring rapidly and on a daily basis. In an effort to keep you informed regarding the latest developments and to minimize any risk to you and to our team, please be advised that all elective procedures scheduled at our office will postponed until after April 8, 2020. On the recommendation of the American Dental Association, we will be available for you on an emergency basis during the next three weeks.

As this unprecedented event plays out, we will reach out as necessary to keep you informed as the latest information is made available. Should you have any questions regarding an existing appointment please do not hesitate to contact our office.

On a case by case basis, some follow up appointments that were already scheduled and reviewed by Dr. Proto will be left as is. Again, if you have questions regarding the status of your appointment, please do not hesitate to call. We will be in the office on a modified schedule to answer your calls.

Below is the recommendation of the American Dental Association.

 

“The American Dental Association (ADA) recognizes the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances dentists and all health care professionals face related to growing concern about COVID-19. The ADA is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and the dental team. 
 
In order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.
 
As health care professionals, it is up to dentists to make well-informed decisions about their patients and practices. The ADA is committed to providing the latest information to the profession in a useful and timely manner.
 
The ADA is continually evaluating and will update its recommendation on an ongoing basis as new information becomes available. Please visit
ADA.org/virus for the latest information.” 

 

Sincerely,

 

Christopher Proto, D.D.S.
