The American Dental Association (ADA) has issued a statement calling upon dentists nationwide to postpone elective dental procedures for several weeks in order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Concentrating on emergency dental care only will allow dentists and their teams to care for emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.
In light of this information, Greenhill Family Dental Care will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday to receive phone calls and see emergency patients. Examples of what constitutes an "emergency" can include the following: dental pain, oral swelling, infection, tooth fracturing resulting in pain or discomfort, and temporary prosthetic breakage. If You are unsure as to whether it is a dental "emergency" please do not hesitate to call our office at (703) 753-2252 and we will assist you in making that determination. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
