Important Information Regarding COVID-19
We are aware of the ongoing news reports about the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and realize our patients have questions. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly. On March 20th, 2020, we received an order from the State of Florida to close all dental offices until May 8th. Following this mandate, we are ONLY allowed to see dental emergencies. If you have a dental emergency, call our office at 941-907-7792 to schedule an appointment.
As dedicated health care professionals, we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and team members. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and team.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We understand how uncertain these times are for everyone. We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
Until we see you again, please stay safe and healthy!
Dr. Marcano & Team
