For immediate release March 18, 2020
Dear colleagues, patients and partners of Oral Surgery Michiana,
Per the recommendation of the American Dental Association and in the best interest of our patients, employees and greater community, effective immediately, Oral Surgery Michiana will be closed until further notice for all elective procedures. We will remain open to evaluate and treat emergency patients. If you have an emergent patient, please call our office directly PRIOR to sending a patient to the Emergency Room. Our staff will work to reschedule patients scheduled within the immediate future for a later date.
Due to the growing COVID-19 concerns, the American Dental Association (ADA) has recommended the following:
“The American Dental Association (ADA) recognizes the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances dentists and all health care professionals face related to growing concern about COVID-19. The ADA is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and the dental team.
In order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.”
Oral Surgery Michiana will continue to serve as a resource for our referring partners and will remain available to treat patients with emergent needs. Please contact our office directly at 574-272-8823 if you have an urgent matter. Thank you for your continued trust in Oral Surgery Michiana
