Important Information Regarding COVID-19
Your health is our primary concern. We know our patients and the community are worried about the 2019 novel coronavirus COVID-19. We want to reassure you that we have always followed Universal Health and Safety Precautions and continue to do so. These precautions are designed to protect all patients, office guests, and our team members from contracting or transmitting a communicable disease.
The current precautions recommended by the CDC for the general public include wiping surfaces with over the counter disinfectants. We have always used professional grade disinfectants to wipe surfaces in the office. We either sterilize or use disposables for everything we use on a patient. We have added wiping down all non-clinical areas of the practice, including the reception area, office, and building common areas. The CDC is recommending frequent handwashing and we encourage everyone to do the same.
In keeping with our commitment to act in the best interest of our patients, at this time we feel the top priority must be to do what we can to prevent COVID-19 from spreading into our community. Therefore, our office will be closed through the end of the month. Penobscot Bay Dentistry will be seeing only those patients requiring urgent dental care. Patients with appointments scheduled during these next few weeks will be contacted to reschedule.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Hope everyone stays safe and healthy!
