A notification to our family of patients:
As everyone is well aware, we are in a unique time in our history with the current COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that each of you are taking care of yourselves in this time and know that our thoughts are with each of you.
In light of the current situations, the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners has recommended that “…dentists should consider postponing elective or non-urgent care for two weeks beginning 17 March 2020. Please note, this is a recommendation and not a mandate. However, these measures are designed to limit the spread of Covid-19 and keep practitioners and patients as safe as possible.” The Board has also stated, “In the meantime, dentists, who strictly adhere to all sterilization and disinfection guidelines, should consider the continuation of emergency care to prevent dental patients from adding stress to hospitals, hospital emergency rooms, and urgent care facilities.”
In alignment with these recommendations, Plaza Midwood Dentistry will be closed until at least March 30 as recommended. At that time, we will re-evaluate and determine the best course of action.
During our closure, our patients remain our priority. We will be available for dental emergencies as we are needed, and as long as our health and conditions permit. If you have a dental emergency, please contact our office at 704.837.8480 and leave a voicemail if we do not answer. The voicemail will be checked each weekday if we are not in the office. If you have not received a response from us within 24 hours, or if the emergency is of immediate need, follow instructions on the voicemail to contact Dr. Farmer directly.
If there is a life-threatening condition, as always, call 911 or seek care at an Emergency Department immediately.
If you receive a notification text or email (we know, we send you one occasionally) for an appointment during this time, please disregard it as a mistake. We will work to reschedule any missed appointments as soon as possible after re-opening, hopefully with additional appointment times and hours available.
This is not an easy decision to make as we want to provide care to you, our patients, always. However, there are times that we must do what is best for your health and the public’s health as a whole.
We look forward to a time that we return to normalcy, where you tell us how much you hate the dentist (except us, of course!) and how you assure us that you will floss every day, even though we found nobody rushed to the grocery stores to buy up their favorite floss before it was ravaged from the shelves.
But for now, we must move forward with you in mind, and in our hearts as always.
