To our Patients
On March 16, 2020, the American Dental Association released a recommendation to dentists nationwide to postpone elective procedures in response to the spread of the coronavirus disease, COVID-19, across the country. In response to the recommendation, we will be canceling all non-emergency appointments through March 31, 2020. The office will remain open for calls and emergency appointments from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm daily. Should you have an emergency outside of these hours please use the contact information recorded in our office message.
Our current plan is to reopen the office on April 1, 2020. The office will continue to follow Universal Health and Safety Precautions as well as the precautions recommended by the CDC for the general public. 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 hand washing and we encourage everyone to do
We will also continue to monitor and evaluate the latest information and implement any new guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association, the Indiana Dental Association, and the CDC. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Dr. Mark Gleixner and Dr. Ben Diekhoff
