Our office abides by the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, the Virginia Department of Health, American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, and the Virginia Dental Association. As of 03-15-2020, the Virginia Dental Association recommended all dental offices refrain from seeing patients for all non-urgent care for the next two weeks. The American Association of Orthodontists later published a statement, supporting this recommendation. In accordance with state and federal guidelines our office has chosen to postpone any non-emergency dental procedures until 04-24-2020.
Your health and well-being is our number one priority. We have already removed all winter and St. Patty’s décor, disinfected the office, and redecorated it to make it ready for Spring!!! Additional deep cleaning is planned for this week. We also have limited staff available each day to address your needs.
Our staff is available by phone, text, and email to answer your questions or to help you find the best day and time to schedule your future appointments. Please be patient as we try to work around this unexpected crisis. We are not miracle workers, but we will do everything we can to get appointments rescheduled as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
We aim to provide the highest quality of care and service, and we will continue to do our part to ensure your care is in the cleanest and safest place possible! We will continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 and reassess the situation at the end of this period. In similar fashion, an updated notice will be posted on Instagram, Facebook and on our website.
All of us at Lenk Orthodontics love our jobs, primarily because we get to spend every day providing care and engaging with the great people of our community. The people associated with our practice are more than patients and guests—they are our family and friends. Because of our love for our practice, we are abiding by all recommendations so we can continue to create beautiful, healthy smiles IN A HEALTHY COMMUNITY.
