Hello Dear Patients and Friends of Dr. Burke and Dr. Beckstrom!
This week the CDC, American Dental Association, and the American Association of Orthodontics have strongly recommended all non-essential medical procedures be canceled in response to COVID-19. Our understanding is that this will preserve needed medical supplies and slow the spread of COVID-19. At B+B Ortho, we have always been committed to being good citizens and looking out for the greater good. Unfortunately, this means we will be closing our offices until further notice. While we are optimistic that we can reopen soon, progress and updates from these governing bodies will determine when it is recommended and safe to do so.
While this closure has the potential to slightly delay your treatment, feel confident that any missed appointments will not result in unfavorable outcomes. We will pick up your treatment right where we left off and deliver on the results we promised!
We will still be treating any emergency needs during the closure (pain, trauma, or relapse related issues). Our preferred method of communication is via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. During this closure, we will not actively take incoming phone calls, but voicemail and our emergency phone line will remain available. We will be actively monitoring our emails and voicemails to meet your needs.
Details regarding appointments:
- If you have an existing appointment, we will reach out to you directly once we determine a date to reopen. We will then reschedule any missed appointments.
- Should we reopen before your scheduled appointment, we will honor your original appointment time.
- If you are a new patient desiring a consult, please email us! We will be sure to reach out to you when we can resume our free consultations.
Above all else, our response to this global crisis as human beings will far outweigh any potential impact that COVID-19 may have. We live in a great community and nation and the future is bright! We encourage all of you to Smile Forward as we work to come out of this trial stronger than ever before. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Thanks, and Smile Forward!
