Important Information Regarding COVID-19
As of March 30, 2020, our office will be closed for standard, routine appointments and treatment until further notice.
We will still be here for you in the event of a dental emergency. Our phone lines will remain open on a limited basis and we will have a small staff present for dental emergencies. In the event that you need immediate treatment, please don’t hesitate to call us. If you are unable to reach us at the office you may contact Dr. Gelb on his cell phone at 203-610-1756. We are elevating our infection control procedures and will be screening all patients for symptoms prior to treatment.
Remember, the spread of COVID-19 will be determined by our collective actions now, and this decision is being made out of an abundance of caution. We believe that by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in the current situation.
As soon as we are safely able to re-open to continue your care and see any new patients we will let you know.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Dr. Lawrence B. Gelb & Staff
In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, utilizing single-use disposable materials, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.
We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
