To all our valued patients,
As we move into the 2nd month of life no-longer-as usual we hope you are all well and adapting as best you can to the new abnormal. We miss work, our team and our patients. Not being with friends and family is difficult!
We understand that in today’s world, your dental health is fundamental to your overall health and cannot be ignored. We believe our mission to maintain your dental health is never more important than at times like this.
Every day we are in touch with dental specialists from all over the country, monitoring what the best minds in dentistry think will happen. Amongst those we communicate with, there does appear to be a shifting emphasis in the last week in how we all move forward. We seem to be moving on from how to shutter our offices to what comes next.
So What Does Come Next?
The dental community is judiciously and thoughtfully awaiting guidance from our elected officials on a state and city level to tell us when we may re-open our offices. Like many of our dental colleagues, we are fully aware that opening the office to again provide periodontal and implant care will involve some changes in standard operating procedures.
As surgical specialists we have always managed comprehensive care in our sterile surgical operatories. How we implement appropriate social distancing and change our delivery of care methodology is a work in progress. Rest assured that our office will not re-open until adequate provisions have been made to keep all of us protected to the best of our collective abilities.
Both of the doctors can be reached for emergency concerns and are available to see you in the office if conditions warrant observation or treatment. We will continue to stay in touch. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for your continued trust; we and our staff look forward to seeing you in our office when appropriate.
Please stay well and be healthy.
Dr. F. Niver & Dr. R. Sobel
