Current Status: As of Tuesday, April 14, 2020
At Smile Central Dental, the safety of our patients, team members, and community is our first priority. Throughout the past weeks, we have carefully followed developing information regarding COVID-19.
At this time, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our patients, team members and community to NOT resume routine dental care for the next few weeks. We will continue to treat patients who require urgent care, please call the office and follow the instructions if you have a dental emergency.
We are assessing the situation daily and will communicate regularly with our patients. Please note that all appointments for the month of April are canceled. We are hoping to resume treating patients for routine care in the month of May, providing that health and government authorities consider it safe to do so. We will contact all patients to reschedule their appointments once we have a definite re-opening date.
We hope that you and your family remain safe and healthy during this challenging time.
Our Normal Standing Dental emergency message is below and provides dental emergency examples. Please refer to our current above message for our current status of operations.
If you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call our practice as soon as possible. If you need immediate attention after hours, call our emergency phone number and our on-call staff member will help you. If you are unable to reach our office during an emergency, dial 911.
We are here to help you, any time, any day. When your dental health is at risk, we will do everything we can to make sure that you're treated as soon as possible.
