17 Mar Helpful Social Media Posts
Social media posts, website notices and patient emails can help keep patients informed. Feel free to modify the following information template for your practice:
If your office is closing:
The health and well being of our patients and the community of [city or town] is our highest priority. For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to close our practice temporarily to try and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will make a decision about re-opening or extending our closure by [date]. Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to communicate with our patients as much as possible during this closure and after re-opening to accommodate dental needs as much as possible.
If your office is remaining open, even for emergency procedures only:
Your health and well-being are our highest priority. At all times, we take the highest level of precautions to prevent the spread of any type of infection, including the new coronavirus. You can learn more about these protocols, as well as how you can help keep yourself and those around you healthy, from the American Dental Association’s website at mouthhealthy.org/virus.
[Provide any office-specific protocols surrounding scheduling/rescheduling of appointments, available procedures, emergency number, precautions to limit contact in waiting areas, etc.]
Please contact our office if you have any questions about an upcoming appointment or your oral health needs. We will continue to closely monitor updates from the CDC, and the American Dental Association. If there are any changes to our procedures or appointments, we will update our patients immediately.
