Arundel Dental Group Welcomes You

                              June 2020

 

   Effective May 7, 2020, Maryland Governor Hogan and the Maryland Department of Health have permitted us to resume elective and non-urgent dental treatment.

 

   During this National Emergency we are exercising the same universal precautions and infection control protocols we routinely use to safeguard your health as well as enhanced measures to deal with these exceptional circumstances.

Your safety is our utmost concern.

 

    When you arrive for your appointment you will be escorted into the dental office and seated immediately without having to sit in the waiting area. Please call from your car upon arrival to see if we are ready to seat you.  Patients with a temperature or any potential symptoms of Covid-19 will be rescheduled.

 

Social distancing will be maintained.

Please do not bring any additional family members to

your appointment, or ask them to wait in your car

during your appointment.

 A FACEMASK IS REQUIRED

FOR ENTRY INTO THE BUILDING.

 

    Please call the office if you have any special needs or concerns. Leave a voice message if we are unavailable to answer your call. If you are not comfortable keeping an appointment at this time, we will gladly reschedule you at a later date.

 

    If you have a fever, cough or cold, or recent exposure to Covid-19, please let us know and we will reschedule your appointment.

Information about Do-It-Yourself Teeth Straightening:

  • The American Dental Association and member dentists across the country are dedicated to the health and safety of the patients they serve.
  • ADA policies oppose Do-It-Yourself Teeth Straightening and Direct to Consumer Dental Laboratory Services because dentists are concerned about the potential for irreversible harm to patients.
  • For example, orthodontic treatment, if not done correctly, could lead to potential bone loss and receding gums, changed bites, and other issues.
  • The ADA believes that for the health and well-being of the public, patient supervision by a licensed dentist is necessary for all phases of treatment.
  • You can find more information on MouthHealthy.org, the ADA’s website for the public at MouthHealthy.org/DIYdentistry.
