Greetings, from your friends at Beaumont Family Dentistry! We want to update you about the ways we are continuing to keep our patients and our staff safe and healthy.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer and looking forward to the Fall and the start of school. With online classes and children at home, many of you are faced with a work:home balancing act.
Several of our employees at Beaumont Family Dentistry are in the same position, so we are going to be making some short term changes to our schedules to allow them to stay home when needed. These changes will be internal and will not affect any of you already scheduled. Please watch for an email soon regarding this.
With COVID still present, we consider our dental teams to be your primary health care providers as we generally see many of you twice a year. We follow the healthy mouth standard and are committed to being responsible for your oral and overall health. The mouth is the Gateway to the entire body and to your health and well being. The throat and salivary glands have been demonstrated to be the sites of the COVID virus replication and transmission. We are here to keep you healthy and safe!
On Tuesday of this past week, the World Health Organization recommended for patients to “delay routine dental care in certain situations due to COVID”. The American Dental Association quickly and respectfully disagreed as, “Dentistry is an essential health care service because Dentists prevent and treat oral diseases which affect systemic health.”
Your teams at Beaumont Family Dentistry follow and exceed all levels of personal protection equipment as outlined by both the ADA and the CDC as we strive to protect both our patients and ourselves from this virus and all other diseases. We are a safe environment, and our goal is to help you achieve the best oral health as possible to keep you healthy.
We look forward to seeing you soon. Find us at www.beaumontfamilydentistry.com.
Also, teledentistry is available for consultations at your convenience. Please see our website for more information.
And in closing, please take the time to vote for Beaumont Family Dentistry as the BEST DENTAL OFFICE in Lexington for the 5th year in a row!! http://kentucky.secondstreetapp.com/Readers-Choice-2020/
Thank you. Be safe. Wear your mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands frequently.
