Coronavirus

To Our Valued Patients and Friends,

We are writing to keep you updated on the changes at the practice as COVID-19 continues to upend daily life. 

On Monday, March 23, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer instituted Executive Order No. 2020-21 (“Stay Home, Stay Safe”) to suppress the spread of COVID-19 and prevent health care systems from being overwhelmed.

Specific to our dental practice, we have formulated a plan to comply with the Governor’s Executive Order:

  • We will continue to provide Essential Treatment to patients on a limited basis and by appointment only. Essential Treatment includes: procedures to alleviate pain, swelling, and infection. Procedures to restore oral function. And procedures where postponement of treatment would significantly impact the health, safety, and welfare of our patients.
  • Non-Essential Treatment will be postponed until the state of emergency is terminated. Non-Essential Treatment includes: preventative care (teeth cleanings), well visits/check-ups, and cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

Should you have a Non-Essential Treatment scheduled we will be reaching out to you by phone this week to reschedule. If you need dental care (Essential or Non-Essential), please call the office and we will help determine how to best schedule that treatment for you.

We are committed to the safety of our patients and team members during this time, and always. Please know that our practice is compliant with the CDC and OSHA, and all team members are up to date with Infection Control practices and Universal Precautions.

As this situation continues to evolve, we will update our plan and protocols to best serve you, while keeping the safety of the community paramount. While this is an unnerving time for our community and the world, we are confident that normal life will resume. We fully intend on being a source of knowledge for our patients during this crisis.
