Dear Patients and Friends,

We want you to know that we are here for you during this difficult time.

In light of the COVID-19 Epidemic and in response to your many questions, we would like you to know what conditions we are able to treat based on the current ADA treatment guidelines: 

    • Dental Emergencies:

    • Potentially life threatening and require immediate treatment to stop ongoing tissue bleeding and alleviate severe pain or infection. Conditions include:

      • Uncontrolled bleeding

      • Infection with intra or extra-oral infection compromising patient's airway

      • Trauma involving facial bones, compromising patient's airway

    • Treatment of Dental Emergencies with dental extraction, surgical intervention, and medication is advised.

    • Urgent Dental Needs:

    • Management of conditions that require immediate attention to relieve severe pain and/or risk of infection, with the purpose of alleviating the burden on hospital emergency departments. Needs include:

      • Severe dental pain

      • Abscess, or localized infection with localized pain and swelling

      • Tooth fracture resulting in pain or soft tissue trauma

      • Dental trauma with avulsion/luxation

      • Dental treatment required prior to critical medical procedures

    • Treatment of Urgent Dental needs should be as minimally invasive as possible, and include palliative treatment of pain, antibiotics, rinses, and other medication.

If you are experiencing any of these conditions please call the office at 434-979-3940 so we can care for you appropriately. We are doing all we can to prevent the spread of this deadly disease and anticipate returning to work once we deem it is safe for you and our caring staff.

Our best to you and your families,

David & Rebecca Swett
