To Our Valued Patients,

We are currently working on a modified schedule. During normal business hours, I will be available for phone calls, text messages and teleconsultations at (916)390-8725 to address dental emergencies, appointment changes or other concerns. Since the situation is changing from day to day, I will also communicate with you via an email, Facebook, Instagram and the "Office News" tab of our website (mysacramentodentalcare,com).

I pray all of you are doing well, and I hope to see you again soon.

Dr Y

To Our Valued Patients,

I have decided to voluntarily suspend non-urgent treatment for our patients  until Monday, March 30, 2020. This decision comes in the wake of an email  from  the California Dental Association (CDA), sent  at  11:00pm on Sunday night:

 "The California Dental Association strongly recommends that dentists practicing in California voluntarily suspend nonessential or non-urgent dental care for the next 14 days.

CDA does not make this request lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during this historic public health emergency.  As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in "flattening the curve" in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus."

For the next 2 weeks  we will be in the office, operating with a skeleton crew,  answering phone calls and treating emergency patients as needed.

In our field, we are exposed to many pathogens, since we work  in close proximity to our patients.  Other than COVID-19,  we are exposed to  the common cold and  flu, Hep A, Hep B, Hep C, H1N1, Ebola and HIV, to name a few.  We would like to assure you that our Infection Control and Safety Protocols have ALWAYS been  in accordance with, or have exceeded the standard practices . We will continue to maintain these standards, regardless of season or sickness,  to protect our patients and our team.

I am privileged to call you  our patient and consider you a part of our family. We remain committed not only to your oral health, but your overall health as well. Your safety and well being is of the highest importance to us.

We realize this decision will be a burden on our established patients and staff, and  agree with the CDA's statement that it is in the best interest of public health.  Thank you in advance for your understanding, we will keep you updated with changes as they arise.

 

With Warm Regards,

Dr. Yumiaco
