The team of Scott Dental Group is closely monitoring the Coronavirus COVID-19) outbreak via the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The virus and protocols around it are quickly changing and we are working to mitigate any impact on our providers, staff, and patients.
We ask all patients and their guests who have a fever, symptoms of a respiratory infection, or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19, the flu, or any other communicable disease to reschedule their appointment or surgeries. We will be following CDC recommendations for management of patients. If you are at all concerned you may have a serious infectious disease, your best course of action is to seek care at your primary care physician’s office or local hospital’s emergency department.
Please remember that the best way to prevent the spread of communicable disease is cleanliness, hand washing and cough etiquette. Visit the CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) and the WHO website (https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus) for more information on prevention, symptoms, resources.
Again, this is an evolving situation, and we will be closely monitoring it and providing our patients and staff with updates, as well as posting it on our website and social media platforms. We are doing everything we can to keep our patients and staff healthy.
