Open for dental emergencies
With the rise of COVID-19 hospitals have been placed under a large burden. Doctor's, PA's, NP's, and Nurse's are exposing themselves in order to help the public. In this blog I want to cover COVID-19 and also ask people not to go to hospitals with their dental emergencies, but find a dentist who is open. Hospitals already have enough work cut out for them. Many dental offices have closed, but our dental office is still open and we are seeing dental emergencies so hospitals can deal with screening and treating people with COVID-19 and also deal with other medical issues such as strokes, heart attacks, and other various medical problems that present to them. I want to thank all of our Doctor's, PA's, NP's, and Nurse's for everything they do for us.

Dr. I Dental PC is open for dental emergencies and tooth pain. Imagine if all the dental offices closed, all the patients would turn to hospitals for their dental emergencies and tooth pain. In the hospitals they would be at risk of contracting COVID-19. Medical providers have their hands full right now, and as a dentist, I can help them by keeping my office open and lessening their burden. Our staff has been trained to follow a strict protocol.
Our dental office is open and here for you in case of dental emergencies or tooth pain.
