Given the outbreak of COVID-19, Christenson Family Orthodontics has made the difficult, but important, decision to postpone any non-emergent appointments. You can be assured that this decision was not made lightly but was made to protect patients, staff and families.
Given the closure, you may have a few questions.
Will this delay my treatment?
We know part of successful orthodontic treatment is showing up for your appointments. That’s not an option under these unusual circumstances; it’s okay. Don’t panic. Though your appointments are scheduled out to achieve maximum success, this hiccup shouldn’t have much of an impact on your overall treatment plan. Given the situation, Drs C & Oakley will work hard to get your treatment plan back on track when we reopen.
You can help keep treatment on track by following the directions you were given at your last appointment, avoiding hard and sticky foods and keeping your teeth clean. With limited appointments available, now is not the time to be breaking brackets, and keeping your teeth clean will ensure the best possible result.
Make sure to stay in contact with our office about when we plan to reopen and get any appointments you’re going to miss rescheduled. Visit our office website and/or Facebook page to get the most up-to-date information. And of course, feel free to call the office if you have any questions. Someone is there Mon – Fri from 9 am to noon to answer phone calls.
A timeline as to when we can reopen may be up-in-the-air, but you can rest assured we are making decisions with your best interest in mind.
“Emergency care” is still available? What does that mean?
If you have an urgent need during this time, such as pain or injury, we will likely be available for emergency appointments. Please contact the office to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
There’s a lot of uncertainty right now, but what’s one thing we know for sure?
Dr C, Dr Oakley, and the entire team at Christenson Family Orthodontics looks forward to seeing you back in our office soon!
