Patient Information

Due to the recommendations from the President and the American Dental Association, we have updated our hours and protocols to keep our patients and community safe. Read a list of our updates below.

Effective now through May 18, 2020, our office hours will change to 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday for emergency/essential treatment only. Our goal is to help keep patients healthy, keep patients out of emergency rooms and to minimize the potential risk to our patients and staff.

We will continue to communicate to our staff and patients regarding our plan to return to normal business hours. Appointments will be rescheduled until May with additional dates/hours being opened based on the need to accommodate our patients in a timely manner once we return to a normal schedule.

Our practice has always followed protocols regarding infection control in the oral surgery practice. During this time, we have increased our disinfecting protocol for waiting rooms and patient areas. Patients and drivers will be asked to wait in their car after checking in. Our lobby will remain empty to prevent any unnecessary contact. Patients will be screened via phone and those who are experiencing symptoms will not be seen. Upon arrival, we are asking patients to sanitize their hands and we will be taking temperatures to make sure that those that we see are not experiencing any infection.

We will do our best to accommodate you and ensure that you stay healthy and pain free.

We appreciate your patience as we manage this unprecedented time. Our goal is to keep our patients and staff safe and healthy. We are in this together! We look forward to serving you again soon!
