If you are ill with flu-like symptoms, you should reschedule your appointment.
If you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution, you should wait 14 days until you see your dentist to make sure you have not caught the coronavirus.

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.
The Governor also outlined other directives in an effort to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As an ADA member dentist and dental practice, our office will be rescheduling patients with non emergency and elective procedures until April 6th, 2020.
