Important Information Regarding COVID-19
UPDATED ON 3/18/20:
COVID-19 LIMITED HOURS NOTICE
Dear Valued Patients,
As many of you may have heard, the American Dental Association has urged all dental practices to limit dental treatment to only urgent and emergency needs for the next three weeks. We have decided to comply, as containment of COVID-19 is in everyone’s best interest. We will have limited hours for patients needing emergency treatment. Please call our office if you do have an urgent need. If we are not open, an emergency phone number will be provided in our after-hours message. Please know that when it is safe to provide routine treatment, we will do our best to promptly reschedule the patients affected by this interruption. We pray that you and your family will stay healthy, and look forward to the day our community returns to normal.
With much gratitude,
Kim Pryzgoda, DDS, PA
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
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. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
