URGENT (CORONAVIRUS) COVID-19 UPDATES
As the facts and situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus) continue to evolve, and in step with Gov. Newsom's recent Declaration of a State of Emergency, including the call for all seniors over the age of 65 and residents with chronic conditions to self-isolate at home, We here at Dr. Luong’s office, are thinking about the safety and health of our patients first. As of March 16, 2020, we are postponing all non-essentials or non urgent dental care for the next 14 days. As always, we will continue to be available as needed for emergency care and services.
As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in "flattening the curve" in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus. Our collective actions now will determine the spread of COVID-19, and this recommendation is being made after careful deliberation and in consultation with state and national public health experts. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic.
