The American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, has extended the recommendation that all dental offices take action to conserve medical supplies for frontline personnel, and to help limit public interaction, by postponing all non-emergency treatment. The updated recommendation is to postpone until at least April 30 at the earliest.
The health of our patients, our staff, and our loved ones is of great importance right now. For these reasons, we are suspending all non-essential care until we get further notice from the Centers of Disease Control. If you have an upcoming appointment already scheduled, please be advised that we may have to change that appointment depending on what the recommendations are at that time.
We will contact you closer to your appointment date to either confirm or cancel. We will do our best to handle these issues in as timely a manner as possible.
If you are a patient of record and have a dental emergency during this time period, please call the office at 417-887-3573. Either a staff member or our answering service will be able to receive your call and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
We look forward to seeing you back in our office soon!
Dr. Mahaffey and the staff of Mahaffey Family Dentistry
