COVID-19 Update – 5/16/2020
Thank you for your well wishes and your business! We have the best patients and we are so grateful for all of you!! We have been hard at work on obtaining personal protective equipment and additional staff training to ensure that you are the safest you can possibly be when you return to us.
You can find additional information on what we are doing in the previous posts listed below. We are now scheduling cleanings and routine visits starting Monday May 18th. Please remember to call the office at 843-903-8800 to perform your final screening because we will not be seeing patients with fever or respiratory symptoms.
We are also providing special appointments for our patients that are higher risk for serious complications from COVID-19. Please talk to one of our team members if you have any questions. Thank you again from all of us at Adult and Children’s Dentistry!!!
“Yes, It’s Safe To Go To The Dentist,” Insider States
Insider (9/18, Michelson) said, “Yes, it’s safe to go to the dentist.” The article explained that “there has been no evidence of coronavirus transmission in dental offices since many reopened in May,” and dental offices have safety precautions in place to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
How to Best Seek Medical Treatment During the Pandemic
“The coronavirus pandemic that took hold this past spring upended normal life for just about everyone, and for many people, that meant delaying health care appointments.
Everything from mammograms and other routine cancer screenings to annual physicals, blood pressure checkups and other non-emergency health care visits got canceled in the early stages of the pandemic. And many folks have still not made their way back to the doctor yet, some six months later.”
Dental Visits Listed Among Health Appointments People Should Consider Keeping Despite The Pandemic
We understand that these are challenging times for all. With uncertainty and concerns about everyday life moving forward, please know that all of us at Adult and Children’s Dentistry are here for you. We hope that you and your family are doing well and staying safe. The safety of our patients, staff and families is our top priority. A lot has changed since we have stopped seeing routine patient and we want you to know what we are doing.
We have always taken infection control very seriously and are using this experience as an opportunity for growth. Our staff is receiving additional training to ensure their understanding of the new information that is coming out every day.
We will not begin seeing routine patient’s again until we have received the appropriate guidance but we are always available to all of our patients by phone for consultation. If you are still concerned about COVID-19 but also want or need to receive care, please call our office. We will work with you to limit your exposure as much as possible and are willing to be flexible in our hours and availability to do so.
