Our office has had an above average number of emergency cases since COVID-19 made its way into our daily life. It’s a fact. Patients increase their chances of emergency problems when they miss their regular dental hygiene appointments.
Enterprise Dental Care has had no COVID related incidents to date. You can feel confident about keeping your hygiene appointment and avoid the risk of emergency problems.
Concerns about the COVID virus are understandable but regular dental hygiene checkups are important in preventing emergency dental visits and protecting your overall health.
The question we all have to answer is, “how do we balance Covid safety and prevent unnecessary emergency visits?”
We keep our office safe. Center for Disease Control safety recommendations have been implemented.
Here are some key COVID safety steps we take every day:
"At this point in time, the American Dental Association firmly believes dental care can continue to be delivered safely," ADA President Daniel J. Klemmedson, D.D.S., M.D., said in a statement Nov. 17.”
“Guidance recommended by the ADA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to safeguard the health of the public. Dental care is essential health care. Regular dental visits are important because treatment, as well as prevention of dental disease, helps keep people healthy."
To the best of our knowledge, Enterprise Dental Care has had zero COVID incidents since the start of the pandemic. We do everything in our power to keep our office Covid Safe. You can read more here.
Rest assured. We’ve had a terrific track record to date of keeping patients and our staff free from COVID. A regular check up will likely prevent an emergency visit that could be costly and painful. We encourage you to keep your routine dental checkup.
