COVID-19 & Your Dental Visit
May 15, 2020
A Letter to our Patients
Dear Dental Family,
We hope you have been well and safe during this pandemic, and we apologize for any delays in responses to your messages in the past few weeks. We look forward to the day when we can see you again safely for your dental needs, as we are diligently working to gather crucial information to prepare for a safe return. Our tentative re-opening date is June 1, 2020.
For the “new normal” way of dental care, we are being guided by the American Dental Association, California Dental Association and the California Department of Public Health to provide a safe and productive dental environment. During the last two weeks of May, our staff will be returning to the office and will be communicating with you about the changes that will take place in order to protect our patients and staff from the spread of the coronavirus. We will continue to update our COVID-19 webpage regarding measures we are implementing to maintain a sterile environment.
We will continue to be available via email and phone for communications. Please text us at 510-701-2520 directly if you have dental emergencies, and we will help you schedule a virtual visit with one of our dental providers.
Lastly, we want to thank our dental family, especially the essential workers who are out there, serving the public. Please continue to stay vigilant and practice social distance. Let’s finish strong and overcome this pandemic together as a community.
