To Our Patients and Their Families,
At the office of Dr. Stephen Sandler, our number one priority has always been the health and safety of our patients. We wanted to reach out to our patients regarding the COVID-19 virus, and to let you know the steps we are taking to deal with the current pandemic. We will be following the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association:
“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."
We are and will be available to deal with any emergency concerns or problems. Please rest assured that we are following local and national updates daily and will continue to maintain the highest level of safety and patient care that you have come to expect. Standard Precautions (formerly Universal Precautions) are used for all patient care. They’re based on a risk assessment and make use of common-sense practices and personal protective equipment use that protect healthcare providers from infection and prevent the spread of infection from patient to patient.
We will be posting additional updates through Facebook and emails to keep our community and patients abreast of the latest updates regarding the current health situation.
We recommend that all of our patients wash their hands frequently, avoid close contact with other people, and stay home as much as possible
Again, Thank You for being a valued patient with our Dental Practice. We appreciate your continued trust and confidence. Together we can overcome these challenging circumstances and continue your path to better health!
