To Our Patients…

Author: Dr. David Dickerhoff, DDS, MAGD, FOCOI

I watch television daily as the pandemic develops, just as many of you do.  As this crisis has unfolded, I have developed a new respect for the people who are charged with the protection of our health and welfare.

Based upon the Governor’s stay at home order and social distancing edicts as well as the North Carolina’s Dental Society recommendation that we treat only emergency patients, I have closed our doors to patient care and am prepared to evaluate this situation on a daily basis.  It is not taken lightly that I have a strong and moral obligation to continue to care for all of our patients at Spring Lake Dental Group. Each inquiry into our office will be evaluated on its individual merits and triaged appropriately. But I assure you that I will be manning our office with a skeleton staff during the tenure of this viral outbreak.  If you have pain or infection and need quality of life to be re-established, call us at 910-497-3200 or our after hours number at 910-489-0402.

I will constantly urge you to take the Governor’s request for quarantine seriously.  The best way for us to combat this outbreak is not to let it spread throughout our community.

On a lighter note, I assure you that we miss our daily contact with our patients.  We are using this downtime to update our computers and their software. We are cleaning, organizing and cleaning some more. Our prayer is that we all come through this crisis being happy, healthy and still financially viable.

Stay safe and know that you are on our minds constantly!
