NOTICE OF TEMPORARY DENTAL OFFICE CLOSURE*
Michael L. Bydalek, DMD
Original Post Date: 3/19/2020
The office will not be reopening this week on April 1st. As guidelines and policies allow, we will be addressing a "soft" reopening on a week to week basis. The Wednesday of each week will be the target day of the "soft" reopening week. So in April, depending on health situation and protocol, we are looking at one of these dates; 4/8 or 4/15 or 4/22 or 4/29. Until such time, stay well, stay apart, and keep smiling. Emergencies, please call office number, option #3 and we will respond.
Original Message 3/19:
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and Horsham/surrounding communities. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe. In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily close our dental office as of Friday, March 20th, with a tentative planned soft reopening on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020.
We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation, as well as recommendations from the American Dental association (ADA). If you have an appointment scheduled during this time frame, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.
Dr. Bydalek will be on call 24/7, in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office as you normally would. Option #3.
The office did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, informed research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine, leading up to April 1st, when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal firm business hours. Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind.
The rearranging of schedules and the rebooting of the workflow, once we return, will be handled in the most professional manner. The inconvenience for all of us is understood and we look forward to getting back to a “normal lifestyle”. But first things first. Dental and social separation.
We extend our best for continued health and strength during this challenging time.
Dr. Bydalek and staff
