Patient Notification, Effective March 24, 2020
Dear valued patient:
As of Sunday, March 22, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order requiring all Texas-licensed health care professionals to postpone all procedures that are not medically necessary until midnight April 21, 2020.
In support of national efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community:
- We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in order to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
- Your health and the health of our dedicated staff matters to us, so, going forward, we will suspend all non-emergency care until restrictions are lifted.
- Patients will be seen only for urgent and emergency dental needs. We will be following American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines on what constitutes dental emergency and urgent care.
We will contact you soon regarding your routine hygiene appointments and any non-emergent care. If you are already scheduled for an urgent issue, we will contact you the day before your appointment to discuss your health status, health screening protocols, and confirm whether the appointment should be kept. Of course, please call us right away if you have a dental emergency or need immediate care.
The safety and well-being of our patients continues to be our primary concern. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community and keep you up-to-date regarding our plans to reopen for business as usual.
I urge you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Your team at Lee Dental Centers
