Dear valued patient,
In light of growing concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, especially given its presence in the state of Oregon, we are writing to provide an update from our office.
First, we want to assure you that your health and safety is always our highest priority. Our office has been closely monitoring and adhering to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and we have implemented additional sanitary and disinfecting measures in our office, in addition to our already very strict infection control practices. We have provided additional training and instructions on cleaning procedures to our entire dental team and have required that if staff are sick, they do not come to the office.
However, even with all these precautionary measures, the situation around COVID-19 is unprecedented. As health care leaders in Oregon, dentists across the state are making additional efforts to stop the spread and ultimately contain the virus.
To this end, at the recommendation of the American Dental Association and Oregon Dental Association, we are requesting patients to postpone all elective procedures and non-urgent visits through April 6th. For those patients that have appointments scheduled, a member of our staff will be in contact with you to re-schedule. We will remain available to treat patients on an emergency basis.
Some dental offices have already made the decision to close until the outbreak is contained. If that becomes necessary, we will provide additional updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to take the necessary precautions as outlined by the CDC and the state of Oregon to protect your health and the health of those around you, and regularly check for updates as this unpredictable situation is rapidly evolving
Again, the health and safety of our patients remains our top priority. Please contact our office at 541-548-4064 with any questions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Keener Family Dentistry
