Important Information Regarding COVID-19

Our hospitals are in dire need of PPE.  We are setting up both of our office locations (Kernersville & Bermuda Run) as drop off locations for unopened packages of PPE.
 
The items that are needed are as follows:
N95 mask/respirators, surgical masks, face shields, medical booties, safety goggles, gloves, Kleenex, hand-sanitizer, medical overalls, gowns and advanced respirators (PAPR/CAPR/etc)
We are in direct contact with the supply chain command center for our local hospitals to make sure these donations make it into the correct hands!

Our offices are open Monday through Thursday 8am-5pm and on Friday 8am-4pm.  We are only seeing emergent patients during limited hours but have someone available to answer phones and receive donations.  As a precaution our doors are locked so please knock or call us to let us know you are at the office to drop off.

For emergency patients you can download COVID-19 disclosure forms here.

Our office has set up virtual consult and post op capability to minimize patient’s visits to the office. We are currently only seeing emergencies that are presenting with swelling, abscess, and severe pain. We are able to extract symptomatic teeth, and do incision and drainage procedures if necessary. We are also gathering history information over the phone or video conference with patients before they arrive to try to minimize time in the office.

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.

We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
