Update Regarding COVID-19 Outbreak
Attention Candlewood Family Dental Patients,
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 Pandemic closely and working within the guidance and advice of the American Dental Association as well as the Connecticut State Dental Association. As medical professionals we are committed to your health and well-being. We will all get through this together.
The ADA came out with the following statement yesterday:
“The American Dental Association recognizes the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances dentists and all health care professionals face related to growing concern about COVID-19,” according to the March 16 statement from ADA President Chad P. Gehani. “The ADA is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and the dental team. In order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments."
With this guidance, Candlewood Family Dental will be closing for all elective procedures:
- Crown & Bridge
- Whitening and veneers
We plan to be open as necessary to treat emergency patients with pain in the office. We understand that many of you have temporary crowns and fillings in place. If you have an issue, please call for direction. We all must do everything possible to control the spread of this virus. To be considered an emergency office patient the following answers to the following questions will be required.
- Are you experiencing flu like symptoms?
- Have you visited China, Iran, Italy or South Korea or the Lower Westchester County Containment Zone in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in contact with anyone with known symptoms?
If you have pain associated with a dental condition and you cannot confirm the above, we will ask you to contact your physician via phone and conference with us to find the best suitable treatment. However, it will not be at our office.
If you have met the requirements to be an office emergency, you will be contacted prior to the office visit with guidelines for your appointment:
- We will ask that accompanying friends and family stay in the car unless necessary.
- You will be asked to reconfirm your answers regarding the above screening questions.
- Your temperature will be taken, and you will be asked to rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide.
- Other requirements may be imposed as more information is available.
Thank you so much for your cooperation to slow the spread of this pandemic. It will take all of us working together.
