Dear Patient Families,
On March 19th, Gov. Inslee signed an executive order prohibiting “non-urgent procedures that require medical and dental professionals to wear personal protective equipment”.
The Governor’s order is in effect until May 18th, 2020.
If you have a regularly scheduled appointment during this time, please understand that we must cancel your visit until further notice. We will eventually be in touch with you to reschedule your appointment.
If your child experiences dental trauma or is experiencing dental pain or infection, call our office and leave a message on our emergency phone line by selecting option #2. Please include your child’s age, first and last name, and best number to contact you and we will return your call. We have protocols in place to deliver treatment in a safe environment under these conditions.
For our patients in active orthodontic treatment, we will be in contact with you to discuss your treatment plan. It may be required that we pause any active appliance or elastic wear. In addition, we may ask you to send us photographs to help assess your treatment. If you have questions or concerns about your treatment, please call our office and leave a message on our emergency phone line. Please select option #2 to leave your message and we will return your call.
As a community, let’s all do our part to help mitigate the spread of this virus. Let’s remain steadfast in hope and faith that this pandemic will soon end. Let’s think about and pray for those who are most vulnerable, for those who have fallen ill, for those who have died, for those charged with tending to the sick, and for elected officials that decisions are made for the common good.
Dr. Andrew Kapust and Team
