Creating confident healthy smiles
We hope you are all staying healthy and are faring well in this ever-changing world of ours. I know we are all experiencing constant change and uncertainty which is unnerving in the short term, but we believe that this will make us stronger, more aware and likely more compassionate to our fellow people in the long run. We will emerge from this with a greater perspective and with so much more gratitude for all that we have routinely taken for granted.
On 3/19/2020, the following statement was released from the California Dental association: “The California Dental Association strongly recommends that dentists practicing in California suspend all in-person dental care with the exception of emergency treatment, until further notice.”
Our children’s schools have closed as well as many restaurants and small businesses (ours included). The intentions for the Bay Area’s shelter in place order as well as California’s stay at home order have been designed to slow down the transmission of COVID-19 and to “flatten the curve.”
It is difficult for us to postpone some of your care and we truly miss the opportunity to check in with you in person on a regular basis. Providing your orthodontic care is an exceedingly fulfilling career experience for us and we all can’t wait to get back to it.
We will continue to be available for orthodontic emergencies in as much as delayed care could potentially land you in an emergency room. Our goal as a profession at this time is to do our best to minimize adding stress or occupancy to our understaffed and under equipped hospitals should the cases of COVID-19 continue to rise. It is also very important for our profession to minimize our consumption of personal protective equipment to maximize its availability for our frontline doctors, nurses and medical staff fighting COVID-19.
At this time, if you have an upcoming appointment you will be hearing from our office options for rescheduling or converting your appointment into a virtual appointment. If our closure must extend, we may need to contact you again to move your appointment accordingly. We apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused and thank you all for your flexibility.
Take care and stay healthy!!
