Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday, March 20th ordered that health care facilities in Florida suspend all “non essential elective medical procedures effective immediately.” This includes elective dental care performed at Weninger Dentistry.
Effective immediately, Weninger Dentistry will only be performing emergency services & answering phone calls to help address our patient’s needs and concerns. Your health and well-being is very important to us. We will be reaching out to all of our patients with dental hygiene and elective treatment appointments to reschedule you in the coming weeks.
If the mandate gets lifted sooner, we will reach out to you to try and get you rescheduled earlier. However, if not, then we will resume normal operations on May 8th for our patients. To help lessen some of the challenges associated with rescheduling, we will be offering additional hours upon reopening. Whether it’s being open on Mondays or offering later hours to accommodate patients who would need it, we are going to do our best to get you seen. Your health and well-being is of utmost importance to us.
To our valued patients:
We would like to take the time to connect with you regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic affecting our world. We are actively committed to the safety and well-being of our patients. Our office is actually one of the safer places to be at this time. We are required to always practice universal precautions and good hygiene regimens on a daily basis. In addition, unlike hospitals and larger healthcare facilities, we don’t handle near the volume of patients, therefore greatly lessening the chance for exposure. Our patients are like family. We want you to feel safe, welcomed & reassured that we are here for you. If there is anything we can do to help make your visit more comfortable, please let us know. Also, feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or concerns. We are closely following the recommendations of our government & the Center for Disease Control and we will keep you updated as time progresses.
Doctors Scott & Michelle Weninger
And the Weninger Dentistry Family
