March 27, 2020

As you all know by now, the COVID 19 threat is affecting our lives in countless ways. I have been assessing the information and guidance that has been coming forward in order to make the best decision on how our office can serve our patients, staff and the community at large.

Based on the recommendations of the CDC, American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Federal, State and Local authorities we have stopped seeing patients for elective procedures until April 6th.

We will be available for patients with emergencies.

Emergency dental care may include:  Any treatment for pain, swelling, infection, chipped, cracked and broken teeth, fillings or crowns or bridges that become loose or displaced.

If you are a patient with an emergency dental care need, please contact our office by phone at (404) 577-6620 or email info@rodgersdds.com.

Our practice is taking every precaution to implement procedures and protocols to ensure the safety of patients that do come in for emergency appointments. We ask that dental patients with appointments refrain from coming in if they are experiencing:

  • Fever
  • Currently has a cough or shortness of breath
  • History of significant chronic illness
  • Compromised immune system
  • You or a family member are considered high-risk
  • You or a family member have travelled to a location with a level 3 travel health notice Airline travel in the past 2 weeks.
  • Previously asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine
  • Close contact to an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 infection

We will continue to closely monitor updates from all the official sources. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about your oral health needs.
