Dear patients and parents,

 Due to the Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic the CDC, Rhode Island Department of Health and the ADA have recommended dentists nationwide to postpone elective procedures.

For dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, our office will be open for emergency orthodontic procedures only. Our front desk will contact you to reschedule your appointment for when we are allowed to see non-emergency patients again.

If you or your child have a problem with your braces please call our office first. We will see you or your child as quickly as possible to take care of any discomfort the braces might give you. For some problems we might be able to help you over the phone with simple instructions.

These are extraordinary circumstances we face, and I want to assure you that you and your family health is at the utmost importance to us. My staff and I will be available to help you with any orthodontic questions related to your treatment.

Hopefully we will soon turn the corner with the Covid-19 crisis. In the meantime, stay safe and follow the recommendations by the CDC and the Rhode Island Department of Health.
