COVID-19

To our CPD Family,

 

We are reaching out to update you on the latest important messages from Cary Pediatric Dentistry regarding COVID-19. We want you to know that we are doing our best to navigate and we are praying for your health and safety. Together, as a community, we are facing trying times and the current pandemic is affecting all of us.

 

As we have stated in prior communications, our office is not open for patient care at this time, but our doctors are available and on call to triage dental emergencies. Please keep in mind this temporary closure is based on recommendations by our state and professional guidelines to best to support the health and safety of our patients and our team and to flatten the curve.

 

Additionally, we would like to update you on important new guidelines issued by The American Dental Association as they pertain to what now constitutes a dental emergency that would require dental treatment during the pandemic.

 

The American Dental Association has issued a guideline that dental treatment that is non urgent or does not pose a threat to life should be postponed.

 

Examples of dental emergencies that are potentially life threatening and require immediate treatment are:

  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  •  Cellulitis or a diffuse soft tissue bacterial infection with intra-oral or extra-oral swelling that potentially compromise the patient's airway
  • Trauma involving facial bones, potentially compromising the patient's airway

 

In this world of uncertainty, we appreciate your understanding as we do our best to fulfill our duty to you and your children. If your child is experiencing severe pain but does not fall into one of the above categories, please call us.

 

We hope at the very least that times like these remind us that we are all in this together. We as a team appreciate your small business support now and always. Further, we pray that Cary Pediatric Dentistry will be here for years to come to serve this amazing community.

 

We hope to see your healthy, happy faces soon! Please keep up with us on Facebook!

 

In good health,

Courtney B. said about Vanessa – “She was wonderful when cleaning my daughter’s teeth – “drawing letters, etc.”

She had tons of tricks – my daughter didn’t even know she had anything done.”
