As the health and well-being of our patients and their families are our number one priority, Dr. Low has decided to follow the California Dental Association recommendation of closing our office for the next two weeks beginning today, March 16 - March 29, although this maybe subject to change. Dr. Low will be on call for orthodontic emergencies.
We did not make this decision lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during this historic public health emergency. As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in "flattening the curve" in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.
Our collective actions now will determine the spread of COVID-19, and this recommendation is being made after careful deliberation and in consultation with state and national public health experts. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office; however during this time we will be experiencing a higher volume of calls and will appreciate your patience.
Dr. Joanne Low and Staff
