With 2020 still only a couple months old, we in both the United States and abroad, find ourselves facing a serious situation as a national pandemic known as COVID – 19 sweeps across the globe. And at this time, it is certainly extremely important to take the necessary prevention measures (such as washing your hands or limiting physical contact with each other) and to keep abreast of recent developments regarding the matter.
However, for those in need of dental care during this time, you can rest assured in knowing that at Overland Park Dentistry, our offices will remain open and accepting appointments for the foreseeable future, including emergency dental appointments. However, in wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the American Dental Association has recommended that dentists across the country postpone non-essential dental services until further notice.
Essential vs. Non-Essential Treatments
If you have visited our website or read some of our previous blog entries, you will know that there are three different types of dental services that we provide at Overland Park Dentistry, these are preventative, restorative, and cosmetic based procedures. While there is a certain degree of overlap between some of the procedures, to reduce any unnecessary health risks for both patents and staff alike, we will only be offering the essential treatments at present time, including emergency dental appointments.

We’re All in This Together!
Although we will be temporarily suspending certain services, please remember that if you do require any mandatory treatments, including emergency dental appointments, you will be able to receive the care that you need at our offices. It is important that you do receive the necessary care as oral health problems will worsen if left untreated.
From all of us at Overland Park Dentistry, we would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation, and we will be keeping a close eye on the situation as it progresses.
