Dear Patients and Families of Madison Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics,

We take the safety of our patients, patients’ families, our staff, and our families very seriously. The US Surgeon General’s office and the American Dental Association recently released recommendations urging dental offices to reschedule all elective procedures. In order to do our part in being good stewards of our community and to practice current social distancing recommendations of the CDC, we have decided to close our office to all non-emergency dental and orthodontic appointments until April 6th. We understand the inconvenience this will place on some of our patients and their families, but please understand that the nature of the procedures we perform produces aerosols that contain biologic material, including viruses. By postponing all non-emergency appointments, we hope to do our part in helping to “flatten the curve” and protect our community and at-risk individuals. This also frees up medical supplies, such as gloves and masks, to front line healthcare workers as well as provides time for backordered healthcare items to be replenished.

Please rest assured, during the next few weeks, our team will still be available to our patients. Our clerical and clinical team will be available in the office for urgent and emergency care. Our after-hours emergency line will remain open to provide over the phone guidance. If your child has an appointment with our office between March 23- April 6, please call our office at 608-222-6160 or email us at kidsdental1@madped.com to reschedule your child’s appointment. 

This is a fluid situation and we will re-evaluate our response based upon new data and recommendations as it becomes available. We will continue to stay in contact with all of our patients and their families to provide further updates.

Please take good care of each other and be well!

 

Sincerely,
MPD&O
