By Dr. Lila P Wilson:
As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded and impacted all of our lives, we have been faced with questions about how to lead our daily lives through the stay at-home orders. In recent weeks, the focus for many of us has shifted to asking how to get back to our routines and find a “new normal”, understanding that this pandemic has changed the way many of us will conduct our daily lives. We’ve all felt how uncomfortable and frustrating the uncertainty and restrictions can be. I want to make sure that your experience in our practice is not met with any anxiety and fear and is not an area of the “new normal” that causes you angst.
My goal is to be as transparent as possible by answering your questions related to infection control and COVID-19, with the ultimate hope that you’ll feel more confident in visiting our practice when we are able to re-open.
We have been, and will continue to, communicate to our patients through a variety of communication methods. Such methods include our social media pages Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, our patient newsletter, and this website. We have added specific infection control information to this website, which we encourage you to read to ensure you of the measures we have implemented. Click Here.
We will open for elective treatment and recalls from June 1st,2020. Please call us and we can assess your oral health concern. We are following the recommendation of (list authorities here such as CDA, ADA, CDC, Dental Board of CA) to guide the date in which we re-open. The closure of our office not only will help limit exposure to and transmission of the virus for patients and staff, but it also helps preserve and extend the supply of personal protective equipment that is badly needed in hospitals.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your continued support, your compassion and your understanding of the changes that have and will occur in our office due to these troubling times
