Coronavirus Precautions for Dental Offices

Family Medical Centers will comply with patient safety recommendations of the Governor’s Office, the Ohio Dental Association, and the Ohio State Dental Board to protect the health of our dental patients and staff. Therefore, effective immediately, Family Medical Centers will provide only emergency dental services.

Please reschedule elective procedures including but not limited to:
• Any cosmetic or aesthetic procedures, such as veneers, teeth bleaching, or cosmetic bonding
• All routine hygiene appointments
• Any orthodontic procedures not including those that relieve pain and infection or restore oral function or are trauma-related
• Initiation of any crowns, bridges, or dentures that do not address or prevent pain or restore normal oral functioning
• Any periodontal plastic surgery
• Extraction of asymptomatic non-carious teeth
• Recall visits for periodontally healthy patients
• Delay all appointments for high risk patients, including ASA 2 and 3 patients, unless it is an emergency

If you have a dental emergency, please contact our office to discuss your situation with our staff and to set an appointment, if appropriate.
