COVID-19 Update to Dental Patients
As of Thursday, March 19th, and continuing until further notice, we must implement new restrictions on patient care due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is based on the latest advice we have received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the coronavirus outbreak. Our goal is to help prevent the spread of the virus, and keeping our staff and patients safe by limiting our services for emergencies only. Appointments will be scheduled for existing patients according to individual risk factors. In order to determine your risk factors, please call 1-203-756-8021 Ext. 3812 to speak with one of our reception staff today.
Dental Services will be limited to emergency care only. To be seen, you must have one or more of these conditions:
- Severe toothache pain (not just a twinge)
- Swelling of your gums, face, or neck
- Bleeding in your mouth that does not stop
- Infection or a substantial risk of it
- Trauma (such as a broken tooth)
All other patients if you have an appointment for routine dental treatment (such as a checkup or cleaning or a filling), the appointment is canceled and we will work with you to reschedule it. We are now limiting treatment to urgent or emergency care only.
