Emerson Dental Westford and Bedford
Date: March 16, 2020
Notice of Temporary Closure

Dear Patients:

The Massachusettes Dental Society strongly recommends that dentists practicing in the Commonwealth close their offices from March 17 to April 6 to patients seeking elective and non-urgent care.

Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff, and community. To that end, we have decided to close our practice for the next three weeks, starting on March 17, 2020, in accordance with guidance provided by the Massachusetts Dental Society. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively adhere to the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidance of social separation.

As health care professionals, we believe we have a role to play in “flattening the curve” in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus. Our office will be closely reviewing our appointment schedule. If you have an upcoming non-urgent appointment scheduled with us during this time, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.

Emergency Protocol

Our staff will be here to assist you in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office at our Emergency Number: 978-496-9770 and one of our doctors will get in touch with you.

We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research, and planning guided our decision. We believe that by taking these extraordinary precautions, we can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protective equipment critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.

Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our dental team, and the community in mind.

Please stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Dr. Gregory Wu and the Emerson Dental Team
