Dear valued patient,
We miss you! It is now 9 weeks since we have been asked to close, except for Dental Emergencies. We look forward to opening again and continuing to help you stay healthy, as soon as possible. The fact is, we are being asked to be responsible and avoid congregating together as well as minimizing our use of masks, gloves and the like that are in short supply on the “front lines” in the fight against COVID-19.
Please know that we are here for you should you have a dental emergency. Dental emergencies include anything that causes pain, swelling, discomfort or difficulty eating. Of course, if you need treatment, we will treat you in a clean and safe environment, just as we always have. We will, however, ask several additional questions to understand that you are safe to treat right now.
We do not know when we will be allowed to begin normal operations, but we will contact patients needing dental care as we move through this strange time. We have someone answering the phone every day, so please call if you have any questions!
In the meantime; let’s work together to make sure that dental problems stay to a very minimum.
Please work extra hard at your day-to-day homecare.
Brush and floss daily, and use the interdental cleaners and other aids as we have recommended on your hygiene visits. It is difficult with the new routine extra time at home that we now have, but try hard to avoid sugars between meals, and keep your diet healthy with lots of protein and vegetables and some fruit, (but no fruit between meals).
We love you guys, we miss all of you and we can’t wait to see your smiling faces in here again!
Truly yours in better health,
Everett Dental Center
Dr. Shnayder, Suzette, Ursilla, and Mary
