To Our Valued Patients,
I have been spending my isolation time watching numerous webinars and doing lots of reading to learn all I can about the virus. It’s become apparent to me that much of our lives will be very different after this crisis is over. As it relates to Teitler Family Dental Care, our already stringent infection control practices will be heightened to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We are planning to be ready with training and newly improved materials and methods for meticulous infection control. We will be ready to re-open just as soon as we can in order to provide you with quality dentistry in an environment that has your safety as our number one concern.
As per state mandates, we are currently seeing emergency patients only, Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm. A simplified definition of “emergency” is any situation that involves infection and/or pain. A chipped or broken tooth, a lost filling or crown, without pain, is not considered an emergency. The best thing to do is keep the damaged area clean with toothbrush and floss. Damaged teeth are commonly sensitive to cold at first, but that sensitivity usually abates after a day or so. Routine cleanings and periodic exams are temporarily suspended. Feel free to contact us at anytime to re-schedule – as of now, we have optimistically and hopefully re-opened our schedule starting on Monday, June 1st. Of course, if you are uncertain about your particular situation, don’t hesitate to call (410-489-2650) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
My very best to all,
Michael Teitler, DDS
