As we are all facing this terrible Coronavirus pandemic, and wake up daily with the hopes of something really positive to surface in the fight against this virus, we are also dealing with the realities of how it has an impact on our daily lives and the services that we are accustomed to having access to.
Due to the recent government mandate in the state of Florida, all dental offices are to see emergency patients only. This will greatly help preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) which is in short supply for all healthcare providers and also allow us to do our part in addressing dental emergencies that would otherwise overcrowd hospitals.
At this time, all non-emergent care will be rescheduled, including all dental cleanings and hygiene, cosmetic procedures, and non-symptomatic teeth. Any active orthodontic treatment will be postponed until further notice, but you may still wear your current sets of aligners. Please do not call the office to reschedule; we will be contacting patients from the office to find a time to schedule you in the future.
Additionally, we will be pre-screening patients on the phone before scheduling appointments to make sure you have no cough, or flu-like symptoms, and have not traveled internationally or domestically in the last 14 days. Please help do your part to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
All cleaning procedures in the office are performed to OSHA standards and we are diligently cleaning and disinfecting between patients, as we always do and have done.
We thank you for your understanding during this time and look forward to seeing you all back in soon.
Drs Ortlieb, Rivera, and Champion
