Our office will close from March 23 to March 27, 2020 in response to what is going on. We will see our
patients on an emergency basis. Detailed below:


We put patient and employee well-being first, providing clean, safe
treatment environments for all. We know COVID-19, commonly known as
coronavirus, is a concern for everyone. Our commitment has always been
patient care. We want to protect that continuity of care during these
unique circumstances while helping prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Given these unique circumstances, we are currently only seeing patients who
need emergency, non-elective care.

Right now, all elective care appointments on the schedule between now and
March 27, 2020 will be moved. Any additional changes will be notified as
the situation unfolds. Contact us at (407)601-4468 to find a time that is
convenient for you.

*Our Office is operating to treat only patients with the severe symptoms
listed below.* Contact (407)601-4468 and we will personally work with you
to best address your emergency.

** Severe toothache pain (not just a twinge)*


** Swelling of your gums, face, or neck*


** Bleeding in your mouth that does not stop*

** Trauma (such as a broken tooth)*

*Everyone can take simple hygiene practices to help keep our communities
healthy:*

alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol content) if soap and
water are not available. Patients are encouraged to use a hand sanitizer
during office visits.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands)
when coughing or sneezing.
