Important Information Regarding COVID-19
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. What unites us all is our desire to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Iowa Department of Public Health has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus in our state. In alignment with recommendations from the American Dental Association and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, all elective care must be postponed until further notice. These recommendations are intended to reduce the risk of patients’ exposure to COVID-19 and to preserve personal protective equipment and supplies, while still allowing access to necessary and emergency oral surgery care. This will maintain the oral health of Iowa citizens and help ease the burden on our already overtaxed emergency rooms. Rest assured, though, our doctors have always treated emergent patients, and we will continue to do so in accordance with current guidelines.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
