You may have questions and concerns about Coronavirus, as it relates to visiting our practice. Unless we are instructed by the government to cease offering emergency only dental care, we remain open during limited hours to serve your emergency dental needs.
As of March 15th, 2020, we have been instructed by the government to limit dental visits to non-elective emergency care, until May 18th.
What is a Non-Emergency Dental Emergency?
Our team at The Classic Smile is taking every precaution possible to ensure a healthy environment for all of our patients. We are stringently following the recommendations provided to us by the CDC to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. WE have implemented an increased in-house cleaning schedule with frequent disinfection of all surfaces. Complimentary tissues and hand sanitizer is provided for all.
In order to best protect you and our team members, we are asking patients NOT to visit our office if you have ANY signs of fever, cold, flu, coughing sneezing, etc.... If you have symptoms of a cold or flu and you are experiencing dental pain, infection, bleeding or swelling, we recommend that you visit your local emergency room.
Most hospitals have an Oral Surgeon on staff that will be able to render care and relief in this situation. You can also Call 221- which is a Help Line Call Center that provides information on the Coronavirus.
