As of Friday, March 20, 2020, the state of Texas and the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners have mandated that dentists postpone elective procedures and limit seeing patients for emergencies only. Governor Abbott has now officially extended this to Friday, May 8. Our office is abiding by this mandate to lower the risk of exposure to our staff as well as possible exposure to our patients. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments. We are going to continue to monitor the situation and we will abide by any guidelines set forth by the ADA, CDC, or WHO. We appreciate your understanding at this time and will update our patients as soon as anything changes.
