e hope you and your families are all doing well and staying healthy. Our hope for our community stays strong as we focus on the things we are grateful for even in the midst of this difficult time.
For the past several weeks, we have been adjusting to the guidelines set forth by our governing agencies and public health experts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, we reduced our hours and limited our practice to emergency-based dental care only in the Souderton office.
Those restrictions have now been extended through April 30
. Our Souderton office will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for any emergency situations. We would ask that you call ahead as these hours may change. One of our administrative team members will be available to answer your emergency call during those hours. We are continuing with the policy of delaying all non-essential dental care until further notice.
We want to reassure you that we are taking every step necessary in maintaining and updating our infection control protocols. In addition to the Standard Precautions we already take, including regular sterilization procedures, cleaning counters, door handles and other high touch areas multiple times throughout the day, we are now taking the temperatures of both staff and patients. Our doctors and staff are wearing more protective gear, outfitted with N95 masks and head coverings.We have installed several PECO air purifiers throughout the office and are utilizing a non-stop check out process to minimize your time in the office.
Please understand that we are constantly monitoring the CDC website and will make changes as needed. We will continue to put updates on our website
As a reminder to all of our patients before you would come in for your emergency appointment, we ask that you let us know if any of the following apply:
- You or anyone in your household feels sick; fever, cough, shortness of breath or flu- like symptoms
- You or anyone in your household has traveled by airplane in the last several weeks
- You or anyone in your household has been in contact with a person who has tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- You have a weakened immune system or underlying health conditions
If you do have an emergency dental situation and you need assistance, please contact our office at
Our first priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy while we continue to care for your dental needs. We miss all of our patients and look forward to seeing everyone again real soon. May your families stay well this season as we celebrate Passover and Resurrection Sunday, looking forward to brighter days.
