Due to the recommendations of the Department of Health , and the American Dental Association,we had to temporarily close our office as of March 19th 2020. We had to suspend all non-emergency dental appointments, and we were attending to emergency patients only and answering calls/emails during limited hours Monday-Thursday( 8am-3pm) to assist our patients during this time.
The DC mayor has extended the stay at home order till June 8th, and we are still mandated by Department of Health to see emergency patients only.
WE PLAN TO RE-OPEN TO FULL SERVICES THE WEEK OF JUNE 8TH 2020
Assuming the stay at home order won’t get extended any further.
All active patients will receive a letter from us via email informing them of the changes that have been made to our protocols for the safety of our patients, our tea and the community. A copy of this letter will also be available in the office lobby as well.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, we reached this decision for the safety of our patients, our team and the community.

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.
