Please watch this important update from Dr. Fallon regarding COVID-19 and our practice:
Given the current state of affairs in Pennsylvania, throughout the United States and world with regard to COVID-19, strict mitigation efforts have been put into place by Governor Wolf. Furthermore, recommendations based on CDC guidelines have been made by the ADA as to what dentists should do in this difficult time.
The ADA has recommended that all dentists postpone elective procedures for the time being. The focus on emergency care will help prevent a dental disease burden on what will be an inundated hospital system.
The health and safety of our patients and community is of the utmost importance to us at Berks Oral Surgery. As such, we have made the decision to postpone all elective patient visits and will be focusing our entire efforts on the treatment of emergent dental conditions for the foreseeable future. Our hope is that by treating emergencies efficiently and effectively in our offices, we will ameliorate individual patient suffering while preventing a dental disease burden on the local hospitals. The difficult part of this is the need to reschedule patients for elective surgeries and consults as a means to limit further unintended spread of COVID-19.
Further, as a means to engage in social distancing efforts, we are asking that if you do have an appointment, please contact the office upon arrival while you are still in your car. We will bring any and all paperwork to you for completion and escort you to the room in which you will be seen. Please note, that minors are to accompanied by one (1) parent or guardian and no additional persons allowed in the office with them. All adult patients will be seen by themselves without additional accompaniment, unless required for healthcare or legal reasons.
