Dear Patients, Family and Friends,
Our team here at Miami Healthy Smiles is concerned for the health and safety of all of our patients. It is important to note that we have been practicing state of the art infection control modalities, as recommended by the CDC, ADA, OSHA and AMA, since the infection scare of the 80’s. We are staying apprised of the most recent developments in the COVID–19 pandemic and have implemented even more stringent protocols, to assure the safety of all concerned. We have ramped up our measures by dutifully cleaning door handles, workstations and countertops throughout the day as well as reducing office traffic in order to keep our environment as sanitary as possible.
Based on the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies, we kindly request:
Should you have recently traveled to areas where there are ongoing outbreaks of COVID-19 and/or have returned from a cruise and have any doubts whatsoever about your possible exposure to the virus, we politely ask you to please reschedule your appointment and stay home.
Should you have a fever or any signs of respiratory illness including stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, or shortness of breath, we ask that you please call us to reschedule your appointment.
Again, we would be happy to reschedule your appointment if you are exhibiting these symptoms or have been exposed to someone else who has exhibited these symptoms within the last two weeks.
In order to assist the community, regional and national efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily delayed elective treatment, including periodontal maintenance and routine evaluations with the Doctors. If you have yet to hear from us, please contact us, so that we may reschedule your appropriate appointments.
The Doctors will be evaluating surgical procedures on an individual basis and may request that a procedure be rescheduled. Feel free to contact the office if you are unsure of your upcoming appointment. Should you feel uncomfortable with coming to the office at this time, we also understand and will be happy to reschedule.
Should the State mandate that the office close completely, the Doctors will only be available for emergency procedures until the mandate is lifted. Please do not hesitate to contact us, ever, if you have a true emergency.
Should you have concerns about possible exposure, or you think you may be experiencing symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, please call the Miami-Dade County Dept. of Health at 866-779-6121 or the City of Miami COVID-19 Call Center: 305-960-5027.
