To Our Patients,
Today, I am reminded of the expression: “It’s not the problems we face, it’s how we will face our problems.” As of late, we are certainly being challenged with a novel virus that can spin out of control without the proper guidelines and protocols. Every person and business must temper fear with reason, address panic with patience and tackle uncertainty with education. Please take the time to get educated from the proper experts.
In healthcare and within our own dental clinic at 923 5th Avenue, we have been practicing “barrier control” with CDC protocols and OSHA guidelines for decades to protect our patients and our workers from infectious agents. Please rest assured that our office is a safe haven, and we have taken extra precautions to reinforce our existing infection control methods and protect both our team and patients.
By understanding the facts today, we can move forward with renewed confidence tomorrow. Please see the links and resources below:
