Update on COVID-19 and Notice of Temporary Closure
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff, and community. To that end, in accordance with guidance provided by the Massachusetts Dental Society, we have decided to close our practice for the next three weeks, starting today, March 17th, until April 6th. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively adhere to Governor Baker’s recommendations and the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidance regarding social distancing.
As health care professionals, we play a role in "flattening the curve" by following sound, scientific, public health advice to help limit infections and to slow the spread of the virus. Our office staff will closely review our appointment schedule. If you have a non-emergency appointment scheduled during the closure period, our office will contact you to help reschedule your appointment.
Dr. Seligman will be on-call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, during normal business hours please call our office at 617-451-0011. For after-hours emergencies, please call Dr. Seligman at 617-947-7310.
We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research, and planning guided our decision. By taking these extraordinary precautions, we believe that we can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care, and for front-line health care personnel responding to the pandemic.
Again, please understand that we make this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our dental team, and the community in mind.
Please stay safe and healthy.
James Seligman, DMD, and our Oral Healthcare Team
