Dear Colleagues and Patients,
It looks as if the COVID-19 pandemic will be with us for a while. While we are hopeful for a vaccine and accurate, rapid testing we have had to move forward without either available. We have effectively been treating patients since May and are pleased to report that our staff, doctors and patients have remained healthy. Northern Star Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery continues to be committed to doing our part to decrease spread of coronavirus and will continue to serve you with thoughtful and data driven guidelines.
Dental practices are operating safely across the country and it is clear that dental health is important and we support continuing to seek preventative and elective care, as well as emergency care. We are following and adhering to CDC guidelines, which continue to evolve.
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures and we at Northern Star OMS are committed to the well being of patients and the well being of the public at large. More information is available about our COVID-19 protocols by clicking on the link below.
