March 22, 2020- Update For Patients
Following recommendations from the American Dental Association, our offices have postponed elective procedures for the next three weeks in response to the spread of the coronavirus disease, COVID-19, across the country.
Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.
We will continue to follow the direction of The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Department of Homeland Security, which have categorized healthcare as a critical infrastructure industry, in addition to the food supply and pharmaceutical industries.
At White Brown Smiles, we have a special responsibility to maintain our commitment to patients with dental emergencies. You can count on us to be here for you and provide you with frequent updates and recommendations during these unprecedented times.
It’s critical that we all do our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
