Dr. Middleton Releases Statement in Response to COVID-19

In response to the growing danger of the coronavirus and mandatory state-wide shutdown of non-essential businesses, Dr. Middleton released the following statement:

I hope all of you are able to stay safe and healthy. As most of you know, we have had to make the difficult decision to close our office to keep us, our team, and the community safe from this very nasty virus. As of now, we are officially closed until April 13th but that date most likely will change.

Unfortunately, there is no way to no when it will be safe for us to go back to our regular routines. This may have many of you wondering what that means for you and your ever-important oral health.

If you are having discomfort, pain or swelling, please call me personally on my cell phone. The number can be found on our website or within the answering message when you call our office. I am here to treat emergency needs only and I am happy to advise you as to how we can manage any discomforts that you may have.

Due to the limited availability of dental care, it is more important than ever to practice good oral hygiene habits at home with brushing, flossing, and all the other things that Megan, Lori, and Rachel have been preaching for years.

These are extremely difficult times. We are all in this together. I have been in constant contact with my team of wonderful talented professionals. I know that this is hard for my team and myself to be at home knowing that so many of you are in need. We want you to know that we are ready to get back to work as soon as it is safe to do so.

At that time we plan to increase our hours of work if necessary to meet the ever-increasing need of you our dental family. I want you to know that on behalf of myself and my team, we are thinking about you and hope all of you remain safe and healthy. And please call text or email me with any questions, concerns or problems. I would love to hear from you.
