Dear Friends and Patients of Heather Adams Dentistry,
I wanted to address the COVID-19 virus that is circulating our world. My office remains open with limited hours and services. I am available for urgent dental matters that cannot wait and other essential treatment needed that will prevent you from pain and infection in the near term. I am available for you should you need care now. I have discontinued preventive visits, including teeth cleaning and checkups and plan to resume those as soon as possible as we know how important dental health is to our overall health. Exceptions will be made only for care that will prevent you from pain, infection or outcomes that will result in urgent care for you in the near future. I will use professional judgment, caution, and clinical experience as my guide.
We want you to know that you are safe to receive your needed care here as always. My team is safe. We have an ample supply of gloves, masks and protective disinfectant material on hand and more from our supplier in transit now. Additional services have been added for the cleaning of doors, door handles, counters and common areas with disinfecting wipes. This will be permanent.
This is not the first contagious illness that has circulated the country nor will it be the last. I have always followed the CDC guidelines and continue those practices each day. I assure you that all of us are doing everything daily to provide you with a safe and disease-free environment to receive your dental care. In addition, my team has a safe workplace.
During this time of limited office hours, we will be reviewing every disinfection and sanitization practice based on the COVID-19 virus and further, the seasonal flu and other contagious micro-organisms we see every day. We will share with you any future directives from the CDC that we anticipate and will implement immediately.
Feel free to call me directly at 479.340.0966 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
All of you have supported me. I am extremely thankful for each of you and this amazing community. I am giving you the best information I have today and ask for your grace and understanding if what I say to you now needs to be modified in the future. I ask for your prayers for wisdom and understanding as we move forward. Lives will be saved by our actions today. We pray to return to all the activities we love so much soon. I will stay in touch.
Dr. Heather Adams
