Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Due to the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to electively close our office. Based on CDC guidance, and on the recommendation of The New Jersey Dental Association, all elective or routine dental procedures are to be postponed until at least April 20, 2020 to limit exposure and transmission of the virus, and help preserve and extend the supply of personal protective equipment currently required for front line healthcare workers. The health and well-being of all our patients has always been, and continues to be our priority. We know that many of you are concerned about delaying or postponing scheduled treatment. Please rest assured that we will make every effort to maintain open lines of communication. As with management of the current pandemic, each dental emergency will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. As we have all learned from the patterns of health care needs and stresses in other countries, the situation in the US, and particularly in the tri-state area, is changing daily. The sooner our region can manage the health care needs of our community, the sooner we hope to be able to resume regular dental care for our patients. For this reason, it is imperative that we all take social distancing extremely seriously.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
