The recommendations of the American Dental Association, Maine CDC and government sources is to postpone all non-essential care at this time. With the safety of you, your family, our staff and their families, we regret that we need to restrict our patient care, and have decided to extend our closure to May 1, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The decision was not made lightly, but it is necessary to make sure we are doing our best to protect our community and flatten the curve.
If you have an appointment scheduled while we are closed, please disregard any reminders you have gotten from our automated system. We have a limited staff working hard to cancel current appointments and reschedule if possible. If you are looking to reschedule, we respectfully ask that you wait to hear from a member of our team or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Contact Us form due to the high call volume our office is experiencing.
Please know that in spite of recent events, we remain dedicated to your care and this minor interruption will not affect your overall treatment goal. Things are changing on a day to day basis so our shut down may need to extend past our tentative date of May 1, 2020 due to recommendations of the ADA, CDC and government sources. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate this. Please stay tuned to our social media pages for any changes that we may need to make at this time. We are all in this together and we can’t wait to get back and see you all.
