This is undoubtedly the single largest crisis we will all face in our lifetimes. The gravity of that is not lost on me, for I am a small business owner, with my own private practice and employees. Let me assure you of this – we will continue to work in every way possible to help serve our amazing patients. Our goal is for everyone to safely get through this as soon as possible and see your smiles back at the office.
We are clearly in uncharted territory in this crisis, as is nearly every level of government. What I do know is that as a dentist, I am deeply engaged with the news coming from local public health officials to the CDC and others in Washington D.C. I very much want to be able to provide a definitive return to work date, however what is clear is that we – along with all other public officials and otherwise – still do not have a definitive answer. Until that time, California Dental Association’s guidance is to follow the California state shelter-in-place order, which has an open-ended date. I will continue to inform you of our office opening as soon as we get the green light. In the meantime, we continue to see emergency patients on an as needed basis. Please call the office if you are having an emergency. I am always available for consultations via phone, text or email.
